Monsters, Inc. is regarded as a classic by Disney-Pixar fans and since its release almost 20 years ago, has spawned a prequel film and its very own sequel series on Disney+.
That sequel series is Monsters at Work which tells the story of a new arrival at Monsters, Inc. following the events of the original film which saw scaring being replaced by laughter.
But just how many episodes are there in Monsters at Work season 1? Will there be an episode 11?
Monsters at Work recap
Monsters at Work premiered on Disney+ on July 7th, 2021 and new episodes have been releasing weekly since then.
The sequel series picks up the story of the Monstropolis powerplant following the events of Monsters, Inc. which saw Mike and Sulley bring an end to the days of scaring.
The main character of Monsters at Work is Tylor Tuskmon, a recent graduate from Monsters University who is looking forward to a prestigious career as a Scarer.
However, when Tylor arrives for work, he quickly learns that his scaring talents won’t cut it anymore and he’s assigned to the misfit Monsters, Inc. Facilities Team (MIFT) and he must set his sights on becoming a Jokester instead.
How many episodes in Monsters at Work?
- Monsters at Work season 1 will consist of 10 episodes in total.
That’s right, following the release of episode 10, there are no more episodes to come in Monsters at Work season 1 and there will not be an episode 11, for now at least.
Following the arrival of the show’s opening two episodes on July 7th, new instalments have been released weekly on Disney+.
At long last, the final chapter in season 1 hit our screens on September 1st, 2021.
Will there be a season 2?
- Monsters at Work hasn’t been officially renewed at the time of writing but the ending of season 1 does potentially leave room for more.
At the time of writing, following the season 1 finale, Disney has yet to announce the renewal of Monsters at Work for season 2.
However, the conclusion of season 1 – which saw Tylor finally become a fully-fledged Jokester to help save Monsters, Inc. – does potentially leave the door open for more.
As Tylor has been promoted from the MIFT team, there is a whole new raft of workplace hijinks that could be explored in a potential second season on the Laugh Floor.
Speaking in an interview with Pixar Post, Monsters at Work’s developer Bobs Gannaway teased that rival company Fear Co. and Tylor’s father could potentially be plot points if the show was renewed.
Counting against season 2’s chances, though, is the fact that season 1 tied up Tylor’s story quite neatly, having him complete his journey and becoming a Jokester, meaning that a second season wouldn’t necessarily be essential.
However, there is a potential hint for a second season during the end credits of episode 10 as Fritz is left asking if there’ll be a season 2.
Monsters at Work is available to stream now in full on Disney+ after season 1 concluded on September 1st, 2021.
