With 125 episodes broadcast over eight seasons, Monk followed the titular character Adrian Monk, a private detective played by Tony Shalhoub, with obsessive-compulsive disorder and multiple phobias, and his assistants Sharona Fleming (Bitty Schram) and Natalie Teeger (Traylor Howard).

Adrian worked with the San Francisco Police Department in cracking strange cases, while also trying to catch his late wife’s killer. 

Throughout its years on screens, Monk was critically acclaimed after winning eight Emmy Awards, one Golden Globe Award, and two Screen Actors Guild Awards.

The series also held the record for the most-watched scripted drama episode in cable television history from 2009 to 2012 for its series finale, which saw  9.4million viewers tune in.

After fans of the series discovered that all episodes were now available on Netflix’s platform, they took to social media and expressed their excitement. 

Taking to X( formerly Twitter) one viewer said: “Omg they put Monk on Netflix I’m about to have a ball.”

A second added: “Yoooooo who remembers MONK the TV series???? It’s on Netflix, and I’m watching everything over. Brings back so much memories.’’ 

Another chimed: “Monk has me in a chokehold since Friday. Thank you, Netflix.”’

“There goes my sleep pattern for the next three weeks,” a fourth user joked.

Following the success of the TV series, Peacock ordered a follow-up film titled Mr. Monk’s Last Case: A Monk Movie, with the main cast returning for the movie, released in December last year.

During the airing of season four in 2006, one of the series’ writers, Lee Goldberg, produced a series of novels based on the original series.

In 2015, the last, Mr. Monk and the New Lieutenant, was released, and since then, Tony has appeared in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Nurse Jackie, The Blacklist and Central Park.
