Developed by Bobs Gannaway, ‘Monsters at Work’ is an animated series that takes us back to Monstropolis and serves as a sequel to the 2001 hit film ‘Monsters, Inc.’ The comedy show reunites us with the loveable Mike and Sulley, who lead their company through a transitional phase. We are also introduced to a variety of new monsters, including Tylor Tuskmon, an ambitious new recruit who must adapt to the changes that are taking place in the company.
The show received a lukewarm response from critics who felt that it does not live up to the legacy of the feature films. However, the viewers seemed to have thoroughly enjoyed the show, particularly owing to the relatable and charismatic characters. After a hilarious and heartwarming debut season, fans of the show must be curious to learn whether we will be revisiting Monstropolis in the future. In that case, allow us to share everything we know about ‘Monsters at Work’ season 2.
Monsters at Work Season 2 Release Date
‘Monsters at Work’ season 1 was released on July 7, 2021, on Disney+, with the season finale arriving on September 1, 2021. The show’s first season contains ten episodes that have a runtime of 22–24 minutes each.
With respect to a second installment, there has been no official comment on the matter either from the show’s makers or the parent studio. However, given the franchise’s popularity, a second season is a strong possibility. The Disney Careers portal recently posted a bunch of job vacancies specifically for the show’s production. Therefore, it seems like work is quietly underway on a second season. Since the first cycle completed its run only recently, the studio might like to take some time to assess the show’s performance and viewership before making an official renewal announcement. If all things sail smoothly and the show meets the renewal criteria, ‘Monsters at Work’ season 2 could arrive on our screens sometime in Q3 2022.
Monsters at Work Season 2 Voice Cast: Who can be in it?
In ‘Monsters at Work,’ Billy Crystal voices the role of Mike Wazowski, the Senior Co-President of Monsters, Inc. At the same time, John Goodman returns to provide the voice of James P. “Sulley” Sullivan, the CEO of Mosters, Inc., and Mike’s best friend. The rest of the impressive voice cast comprises Ben Feldman (Tylor Tuskmon), Mindy Kaling (Val Little), Henry Winkler (Fritz), and Lucas Neff (Duncan P. Anderson). Alanna Ubach voices Katherine “Cutter” Sterns and some other minor characters.
For the second season, most of the main cast is expected to return to voice their respective characters. Some of the recurring voice cast members, such as Bonnie Hunt (Ms. Flint), John Ratzenberger (Yeti and Bernard Tuskmon), and Aisha Tyler (Millie Tuskmon), are also likely to make a comeback. Additionally, some new voice artists might join the mix for the new season if it happens.
Monsters at Work Season 2 Plot: What can it be About?
In the first season of ‘Monsters at Work,’ Tyler, who is a Scare Major graduate, arrives at Monsters, Inc. The company is transitioning to the use of laugh power rendering Tyler’s talents useless. Tyler then tries to learn about comedy and hopes to become a jokester. His desire is to work with his idols, Mike and Sulley. In the season finale, Tyler officially becomes a jokester and is promoted to the Laugh Floor. Monsters, Inc. is saved from shutting down after proving that laugh power is a viable energy source.
Since the first season is set between the ending and epilogue of ‘Monsters, Inc.,’ the second season might take the story in a brand new direction. With Tyler now a jokester, he is likely to face a host of new challenges. His friends at MIFT might find it hard to keep in touch with him. We could also see Boo return and reunite with Sulley. Boo’s arrival could once again change the dynamics between Mike and Sulley.
