Plot Synopsis

Former police detective Adrian Monk has suffered from intensified obsessive-compulsive disorder and a variety of phobias since the murder of his wife, Trudy, in 1997. Despite his photographic memory and his amazing ability to piece tiny clues together, he is now on psychiatric leave from the San Francisco Police Department. Aided by his friend and practical nurse, Sharona, Monk works as a freelance detective/consultant, hoping to convince his former boss, Captain Stottlemeyer,to allow him to return to the force. Stottlemeyer wavers between admiration for Monk and annoyance at his eccentricities.

MR. MONK'S LAST CASE: A MONK MOVIE, a new 90-minute film, debuts on Friday, December 8, 2023 on Peacock. Monk returns to solve one last, very personal case involving his beloved stepdaughter Molly, a journalist preparing for her wedding. Returning cast members Tony Shalhoub, Ted Levine, Jason Gray-Stanford, Traylor Howard, Melora Hardin, and Hector Elizondo are joined by Caitlin McGee and James Purefoy.

In a note from creator/writer/executive produced Andy Breckman, director/executive producer Randy Zisk, and executive producer David Hoberman, the trio said, "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."
