The Full Monty series: Release date, trailer, cast, plot & more
The Full Monty is returning, with the cast of the comedy classic reuniting for a series on Disney+ and Hulu. Here’s everything we know about the belated sequel, including release date, trailer, cast, plot, and more.
The Full Monty is one of the most successful British comedies of all-time. Released in 1997, the film followed the efforts of a group of unemployed steel workers to become strippers.
Mixing humor with drama, The Full Monty had audiences laughing and crying in equal measure, and became a box office phenomenon, earning more than $250 million worldwide, from a budget of just $3.5 million.
So it’s no shock that a sequel is happening, just a surprise that it’s taken this long. Here’s everything you need to know about the new Full Monty.
The Full Monty release date: When’s it out?
The Full Monty starts streaming on June 14, 2023. The series consists of eight, 60-minute episodes, which will drop weekly on Disney+ in the UK and Hulu in the US.
Of the belated sequel, writer, creator, and executive producer Simon Beaufoy said in a statement: “It has been one of the great joys of my writing career to reunite this eccentric, irrepressible family of Sheffield men and women and see how 25 years, seven Prime Ministers, and 100 broken political promises have affected their lives.”
While co-writer and executive producer Alice Nutter added: “Entering the Monty world, where community, friends, and family step in when the state has so abysmally failed, has been a great personal reminder of what is good about the world we live in. The series has been a pleasure and a privilege to write on.”

The Full Monty cast: What’s it about?
Here’s the official synopsis for the TV sequel: “The Full Monty gang is back after 25 years, swapping their stage costumes for dognapping, racing pigeons, and one very unconventional hostage situation. Gaz might be older but he’s no wiser, and best mate Dave refuses to get sucked into any more of his antics. But when tragedy strikes, the whole Monty gang must pull together for a common purpose: to honor an old friend.”
