The Full Monty, a highly anticipated new original sitcom on Disney+, unveiled its trailer today. The eight-part series, from the creators of the legendary BAFTA Award-winning film, will debut exclusively on Hulu and FX in the United States and on Disney+ in the United Kingdom and Ireland on June 14, 2023. There hasn’t been a date set for the launch of Disney+ in additional nations.
The 8 60 series, which takes place 25 years after the original British smash hit, will follow the same group of brothers as they negotiate Sheffield, a post-industrial metropolis, and the failing healthcare, education, and jobs sectors of society.
The comedy-drama will explore the gang’s happier, sillier, and more desperate times as it reveals what happened to them after they put their outfit back on. Additionally, it will show how, throughout the years, the fiercely humorous world of these working-class heroes who still call Sheffield home has evolved.
The ACADEMY AWARD-winning screenwriter of the first film, Simon Beaufoy, is back, together with co-writer Alice Nutter (Accused), and executive producer Uberto Pasolini (Nowhere Special).
The lead actors, including Robert Carlyle (Trainspotting, Once Upon a Time) as Gaz, Mark Addy (Game of Thrones, A Knight’s Tale), Lesley Sharp (Before We Die, Scott and Bailey), Hugo Speer (Britannia, Shadow, and Bone), Paul Barber (The Dumping Ground, Gloves Off), and Horse, reprise their beloved roles in the trailer.
Lomper is portrayed by Steve Huison (The Royle Family, The Navigators), Nathan is played by Wim Snape (The Beaker Girls, Gentleman Jack), and Gerald is portrayed by Tom Wilkinson (Batman Begins, Michael Clayton).
Rising talent Talitha Wing (Wolfe, Alex Rider) is also introduced in the trailer. She will play Destiny Schofield, the adolescent daughter of Gaz.
