“The Full Monty” Series Trailer Released
Disney has released the first trailer for the upcoming Searchlight Pictures series, “The Full Monty”, which is going to be released on Hulu and FX in the United States and on Disney+ in the United Kingdom and Ireland on June 14th 2023. Expect the series to also be released on Disney+ around the world.
Taking place 25 years after the original British smash hit, the new series will follow 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.
Check out the trailer below:
