Of all the beloved characters that Pixar has created over the years, Mike and Sulley from Monsters Inc. have to be among the most popular – and the good news for fans of the pair is that they are starring in a brand new TV series for Disney Plus.


Monsters at Work is set in the immediate aftermath of the 2001 animated classic, when the city of Monstropolis decides to make the transition from being fuelled by screams to being fuelled by laughter – and sees the introduction of several new monsters (although popular human character Boo won't be making a return).

Billy Crystal and John Goodman return to voice Mike and Sulley respectively, while new Monsters at Work cast members include Ben Feldman (Mad Men), Mindy Kaling (The Office) and Henry Winkler (Happy Days.)

As with previous Disney Plus series, the show will be released in weekly instalments rather than all in one go, starting with a doubleheader on 7th July and continuing with one new episode every Wednesday until all 10 episodes have been released.

In order to watch Monsters at Work, you’ll need a Disney Plus subscription. You can sign up for £7.99 per month or £79.90 for a full year.
