There is a real buzz in the town centre about the filming, with many people gathering to watch the production crew at work.
Robert Carlyle was part of the original hit film's cast. Most recently, he has been in TV dramas Cobra and Once Upon a Time.
He was also in The Beach, Human Trafficking and 28 Weeks Later.
The original 1997 Full Monty film followed a group of unemployed former steelworkers who became strippers for a night to earn cash.
Makers of the spin-off TV series, announced in March, said it will follow the original characters as they ‘navigate the post-industrial city of Sheffield and society’s crumbling healthcare, education and employment sectors’.
