Fans of Pixar's Monsters, Inc. and Monsters University have a great reason to be excited right now: Their favorite monsters will soon be back in action in Disney's Monsters at Work. This time around, fans will get a whole series instead of a single movie. But before you can enjoy all of the monstrous hi-jinks, you'll need to know where to stream Monsters at Work online. That question is (we presume) what brought you here to our Cordcutting.com guide to watching Monsters at Work online, no cable required. The answer is pretty simple, so read on! (Or just scroll down to the first and only item on our list of ways to watch Monsters at Work online. Either one is fine with us.)

How to watch Monsters at Work online

Monsters at Work may be a TV show, but it's not coming to TV in the traditional sense — you won't be able to watch Monsters at Work on a network television channel of the sort that you used to get through cable or satellite. Instead, Monsters at Work will be a streaming show. You won't find it on Netflix or HBO, though: Disney owns its own streaming services, and Mickey and the gang are not keen on sharing their content with any of their streaming competitors. If you want to watch Monsters at Work online, then you'll have to stream it using one of Disney's own streaming services — specifically, that you'll find below as the first and only entry on this “list.”

Watch Monsters at Work online - Disney+

Disney owns multiple streaming services, including ESPN+ and (most of) Hulu. But it's the company's newest streaming service, Disney+, that is getting the lion's share of much-hyped shows and movies from Disney's most valuable media holdings, including Marvel Studios, Star Wars, and — most importantly, for our purposes — Pixar. Pixar content is key to Disney+'s appeal, and the selection of Pixar titles will include both existing classics and all-new original content. Among the latter is Monsters at Work, the new original series from Disney that will stream exclusively on Disney+.

Once Monsters at Work makes its big debut (for more on that, keep reading), Disney+ subscribers will get one new episode per week. In between new episodes, Pixar fans can always stream Pixar movies like Finding Nemo. Disney+ will launch with lots of Pixar content, and Disney will bring more and more of it home as old streaming contracts expire. Eventually, Disney+ will be your sole source for Pixar streaming.

Can I watch Monsters at Work on Roku, Fire TV, Apple TV, or Chromecast?

So you're hyped up about Monsters at Work — we can't blame you! You're ready to subscribe to Disney+ in order to stream the show, and all you need to do now is figure out how to actually access this new Disney streaming service. Fortunately, you have lots of good options.

When Disney+ launches on November 12, it will offer apps for most major streaming platforms. The supported platforms are Roku, Android TV, Apple TV, and Chromecast. (You might notice that one very popular streaming platform is missing. As of this writing, Disney has not announced a Disney+ app for Amazon's Fire TV platform. That could always change in the future, and we'll update Cordcutting.com with that information if it does.)

Streaming TV device and smart TV platforms aren't your only options, of course. You can also stream Monsters at Work on iPhone or Android smartphone, thanks to Disney+ apps for iOS and Android.

Disney+ will also offer an in-browser app at launch, which will make it easy to watch Disney+ on your laptop or desktop computer.

You'll even be able to watch Disney+ on some video game consoles: Disney+ will have apps available for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

When is the Monsters at Work release date?

When Disney+ launches this fall, Monsters at Work will not be available to stream on the service — not yet, anyway! The Monsters at Work release date will come sometime in 2020, though the specific date hasn't been announced just yet. The lack of an exact date suggests that mid- to late 2020 is more likely than early 2020, but fans can always hope.

What will Monsters at Work be about?

Monsters at Work is set in the same world as Monsters, Inc. and Monsters University. The series will slot into the timeline after the events of the first film (which is the second, chronologically), kicking off about six months after (spoiler alert!) the Monsters, Inc. company's big shift from scares to laughs. It follows Monsters, Inc. mechanic Tylor Tuskmon (voiced by Ben Feldman), who idolizes Mike Wazowski and James “Sully” P. Sullivan, the dynamic duo featured in the two Monsters films. Billy Crystal and John Goodman will be returning to voice Mike and Sully, respectively.

We don't know much about the plot yet, but we do know that the main character dreams of working alongside his idols — and, seeing as the cast includes Crystal and Goodman, it seems like a good bet that Tylor will meet his heroes.
