NBC on Monday announced “Mr. Monk’s Last Case: A Monk Movie” will premiere exclusively on Peacock on Dec. 8. In the movie, Monk returns to solve one last, very personal case involving his beloved stepdaughter Molly, a journalist preparing for her wedding.
Creator/writer/EP Andy Breckman, EP David Hoberman and director/EP Randy Zisk shared, “It’s been 12 years since the world has seen a fresh installment of ‘Monk.’ The world has changed mightily in those intervening years and Monk 2023 reflects the changing world.
“We’re so delighted to have made a movie version of ‘Monk,’ and we are thrilled that every one of our stars were so enthusiastic about coming back. But in coming back, we wanted to do a film that was worthy of our legacy. ‘Mr. Monk’s Last Case’ is a story that is powerful, emotional, funny, heartwarming, and has something to say about the human condition. And it will be both familiar and surprising.”
Returning cast members include Ted Levine, Jason Gray-Stanford, Traylor Howard, Melora Hardin and Hector Elizondo.
