THE FULL MONTY: DISNEY 'IN TALKS' TO COMMISSION SECOND SERIES FOLLOWING REBOOT

The Sun reports that Disney+ are in talks to commission a second series of The Full Monty following its reboot last Summer. Disney+ declined to comment when approached by the publication.



A source told The Sun: "It looks like Disney+ are considering the go-ahead on a second series of The Full Monty. Talks are ongoing about whether it will make it, but everyone felt there was so much promise behind revisiting the story and a few tweaks could make a second series land better...



"Discussions are under way, with some influential people behind the scenes trying their best to make it happen. The ratings, and the negative comments from its viewers, haven’t put anyone off giving the series another look."


Taking place 25 years after the original British smash hit, the first 8x60’ series will follow the same band of brothers as they navigate the post-industrial city of Sheffield, and society’s crumbling healthcare, education, and employment sectors.



The comedy-drama will uncover what happened to the gang after they put their kit back on, exploring their brighter, sillier and more desperate moments. It will also highlight how the fiercely funny world of these working-class heroes – still residing in Sheffield – has changed in the intervening decades.

Among the lead cast reprising their fan-favourite roles are Robert Carlyle (“Trainspotting”, “Once Upon A Time”) as Gaz, Mark Addy (“Game of Thrones”, “A Knight’s Tale”) as Dave, Lesley Sharp (“Before We Die”, “Scott and Bailey”) as Jean, Hugo Speer (“Britannia”, “Shadow and Bone”) as Guy.



Plus Paul Barber (“The Dumping Ground”, “Gloves Off”) as Horse, Steve Huison (“The Royle Family”, “The Navigators”) as Lomper, Wim Snape (“The Beaker Girls”, “Gentleman Jack”) as Nathan and Tom Wilkinson (“Batman Begins”, “Michael Clayton”) as Gerald.


The first series is available on Disney+ now.
