Monk: Petition to Continue the Adventures

MonkAfter eight seasons on the USA Network, Adrian Monk will soon solve his last case. The TV show’s ratings are still very good but, for a variety of reasons, it’s been decided to bring the series to a close. By the end of the show’s run, it sounds like Monk will have finally solved the case of his wife’s killer.

But, is it really time for Monk to go to television heaven or should his crazy adventures continue in some way? After all, millions and millions of people enjoy watching the character’s exploits each week. Couldn’t he return for a few more cases – maybe a handful of episodes, television movies, or even a spin-off of some kind?

If you’d like to see Monk continue in some form, here are a few things you can do:

Tell your friends and family members to tune in and watch on USA. If that’s not possible, encourage them to watch online. Maybe one of them is secretly a “Nielsen family” or knows one.

Write to USA Network and/or call (212) 664-4444 and ask to leave a message on the USA comment line. Let the network know how you feel but, keep it civil. Everyone responds best to courtesy.

Sign the petition below and let the network execs know you’ve signed it. Spread the word and ask others to do the same. Oh, and be sure to keep it clean.

To: ABC Studios, Mandeville Films, Universal Cable Productions, and USA Network

We, the undersigned, have greatly enjoyed watching the Monk TV show on USA Network. The series is far too unique, clever, and humorous to end. It’s also a program that the whole family can enjoy and there are far too few of them.

We are truly upset to hear that this successful show is coming to an end and don’t want to say goodbye just yet. Please consider continuing Monk’s adventures in some way – perhaps in TV movies, in a spin-off, or even in additional episodes. We are just a few of the many, many loyal viewers who are waiting to see what happens to next to this fascinating, germophobic detective.

Thank you for your consideration.

    Monk was the BEST show EVER!!!! I am seriously saddened by its absence. PLEASE bring it back!! In the past, I was never the type of viewer to watch reruns, but with Monk (since that's all I have) I will watch every repeat episode I am able to find!!!! I' rarely watch television, only very select quality shows, aka MONK.... Please come back,

    Over the years of watching Monk my heart has become sad since it is no longer on Netflix. Will you please consider to at least put the show back on Netflix ? I know that life here is short and all good things must come to an end, but please put Monk back on Netflix. Thank you! Michael Cain from Brooklyn, NY. Where anything is possible!

    Monk was one of my all time favorite television series to watch on television, even my grandchildren loved watching the show. My husband and I really loved the series and was very sorry to see it end. I'd love to see it returned to television sometime in the near future.

    I enjoy watching Monk! There are not too many TV shows that are funny and clean. I am a big fan of Tony Shalhoub. I would love to see him come back for a TV movie.

    Was reluctant to sign the petition once I realized that 2561 is divisible by 13 :-)

    Bring Monk back please, best show ever!

    Please bring Monk back! I strongly dislike the direction the novels have taken. At best they resemble Monk and Natalie's relationship when they first met. Natalie doesn't seem to like or respect Monk. Their relationship is mutually antagonistic. Ellen sucks and Molly is absent. At least Albright is gone. Monk was one of the best series ever on T.V. It deserves better than the weak ending it had. Reconsider the cancelation of the movie and give us some hope. Only Shaloub, Howard, et al know their characters. Help me cope with my Parkinson's Disease with Monk's OCD.

    I have been a huge MONK fan for some time, and in the words of adrian You'll thank me later. I feel as if there should be 10 seasons because not only is 10 an even number its MONKS favorite number. Good shows like MONK don't come around anymore so please keep the show going.

    Monk show is so inspiring, its fun, its funny and I like how Monk's character solve cases in such a unique way. Many of the shows I have watched are serious and the endings are serious. But for the show as in Monk, even my son enjoys watching it. So please have Monk shows return! and with the same characters! and some new ones too!

  • KatCountry: United States2013-03-02 19:53:02
    Monk is one of those shows that can never truly end, and there is too much potential to keep on letting movie rumors fall flat. We need a movie.
  • CcloverCountry: America 2013-02-28 12:34:00
