And the actor will be joined by several familiar faces as Ted Levine, Traylor Howard, Jason Gray-Stanford, Melora Hardin and Hector Elizondo are also set to reprise their characters from the beloved show.
Based on the Emmy-winning USA series, which starred Shalhoub as the titular brilliant San Francisco-based detective with obsessive-compulsive disorder, the upcoming film will follow Monk as he “returns to solve one last, very personal case involving his beloved stepdaughter Molly, a journalist preparing for her wedding,” according to the streamer.
