Disney has released a new clip from the upcoming original series, “The Full Monty”, which is being created by the makers of the iconic BAFTA-award-winning movie. This eight-part series will premiere on Wednesday, 14th June 2023, on Hulu in the United States and on Disney+ in many countries internationally, including in the UK, Ireland, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
Taking place 25 years after the original British smash hit, the new series follows the same band of brothers as they navigate the post-industrial city of Sheffield, and society’s crumbling healthcare, education, and employment sectors. The comedy-drama will uncover what happened to the gang after they put their kit back on, exploring their brighter, sillier and more desperate moments. It will also highlight how the fiercely funny world of these working-class heroes – still residing in Sheffield – has changed in the intervening decades.
The first look clip sees the Monty Men back together in Lomper (Steve Huison) and husband Dennis’ (Paul Clayton) café, as Gaz (Robert Carlyle) introduces Sheffield’s “next big thing” graffiti artist Ant (Arnold Oceng) to the gang.
The series sees the lead cast reprising their fan-favourite roles with Robert Carlyle (“Trainspotting”, “Once Upon A Time”) as Gaz, Mark Addy (“Game of Thrones”, “A Knight’s Tale”) as Dave, Lesley Sharp (“Before We Die”, “Scott and Bailey”) as Jean, Hugo Speer (“Britannia”, “Shadow and Bone”) as Guy, Paul Barber (“The Dumping Ground”, “Gloves Off”) as Horse, Steve Huison (“The Royle Family”, “The Navigators”) as Lomper, Wim Snape (“The Beaker Girls”, “Gentleman Jack”) as Nathan and Tom Wilkinson (“Batman Begins”, “Michael Clayton”) as Gerald.
