Mr. Monk To Run For Mayor?

Monk Cast

Monk fans everywhere thought that the defective detective's story had ended for good after the eighth season finale in which he finally discovered the whos, hows, and whys behind Trudy's murder, but apparently series creator Andy Breckman isn't quite done with Tony Shalhoub's multiple emmy winning super sleuth. Digital Spy reports today that the plan is for the series to return in the form of a made for TV movie.

The tele-film will involve Monk running for Mayor of San Francisco, and will appropriately be titled "Mr. Monk For Mayor". Breckman says the script is finished, and the plan is to shoot the project in the summer in hopes that it will air on USA by December.

I've seen all 125 episodes of Monk, and this news makes me quite happy. While the ending was very fitting and well done, I can't help but be curious to see how Monk is doing a few years after the shocking revelations of the series finale. Has his OCD improved at all without the constant stress of solving Trudy's case hanging over his head? It was made clear during the series that Monk always had some level of OCD, but was able to more or less control it until his wife's death sent him spiraling into a breakdown. If he has in fact gotten better on that front, will it have made him a better or worse detective? I can't wait to find out, and I'm sure a lot of other Monk fans can't either.

Some might be asking, why would Monk run for Mayor? I think it is absolutely something he would end up doing and I'll tell you why. Monk is a huge control freak. He wants things done the way he wants them done, when he wants them done. What better way to influence the world around him then by running San Francisco? I do wonder if this will lead to a power struggle with Cap. Stottlemeyer. You know he hasn't retired. He'll never retire.

Do you want to see Monk back on your TV screen? Do you think he could actually get elected Mayor? Discuss in the comments. You'll thank me later.

I would love to see Monk return. I hope he runs against Harold Crenshaw. If Monk wins, he can make Stottlemeyer police commissioner and bring back Randy and Sharona.

I can't wait for the next installment of Mr. Monk's adventures. I really miss the original series and am thrilled beyond belief!

I just watched the entire 8th season of Monk on DVD, so it's fresh in my mind, and would welcome seeing Breckman's cast and crew together again -

Don't get me wrong, I love Monk, But as mayor of San Fransisco? His first order would probably be to evacuate the citizens and burn San Francisco down to the ground, then rebuild the city. lol. But in all seriousness, i would love to see Tony Shalhoub back in action in my all-time favorite T.V. show: Monk!
