A premise for the series shared that Monsters at Work takes place 6 months after the events of Monsters Inc. and will follow the journey of the monster world adapting to using laughter energy instead of scream energy. The shows protagonist, Tylor Tuskmon, is a recent graduate from MU and was Monsters University’s Top Scarer for his graduating class, but what will Tylor do with his now “useless” degree?
The cast includes the return of many iconic characters, as well as some newcomers to the franchise. Cast for the series so far includes: Billy Crystal (Mike), John Goodman (Sully), Ben Feldman (Tylor Tuskmon), John Ratzenberger (Yeti), Jennifer Tilly (Celia Mae), Bob Peterson (Roz), Kelly Marie Tran (Val Little), Henry Winkler, Lucas Neff, Alanna Ubach (Cutter), Stephen Stanton (Needleman) and Aisha Tyler.
