Revivals of the beloved shows from the 90s and 2000s are not a novelty in Hollywood, and Monk will soon be getting a reboot treatment. Peacock ordered a movie based on the police procedural series, starring Tony Shalhoub and the show’s original cast.

The follow-up movie to the hit 2000s show will see Adrian Monk, a brilliant San Francisco-based detective with obsessive-compulsive disorder, return to solve one last case, involving his beloved stepdaughter Molly, a journalist preparing for her wedding day.

In addition to Shalhoub, the revival movie will also see Ted Levine, Traylor Howard, Jason Gray-Stanford, Melora Hardin, and Hector Elizondo return to their roles from Monk. Andy Breckman, who served as creator, executive producer, and writer of the original series on USA Network is also coming back.

NBCUniversal’s Michael Sluchan described this project as a must-see movie event for Peacock audiences, adding they gave it a green light because they immediately fell in love with Andy Breckman’s new Monk story set in the present day.

“The movie has the heart and humor of the original series with a contemporary relevance, and we’re overjoyed to work with the original creative team, including Andy, David Hoberman, Randy Zisk, the unparalleled Tony Shalhoub, and our partners at UCP,” said Sluchan in a statement.
