After the success of Godzilla vs. Kong in 2021, Legendary Television suggested a live-action show that would follow in Godzilla’s huge path. In January 2022, Apple TV+ bargained for and won the MonsterVerse project, which meant it could start right away. Along with Godzilla (2014), Legendary’s MonsterVerse now has four movies: Kong: Skull Island, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, and, of course, Godzilla vs. Kong. The fifth book in the MonsterVerse will be this series. There have been 36 movies in the Godzilla franchise and 12 movies in the King Kong series as of right now. Legendary Television, Safehouse Pictures, and Toho will all work together to make Monarch: Legacy of Monsters. It will be set in the same imaginary world. The 10-episode show was created by Matt Fraction and Chris Black. It will be available on Apple TV+, and the first two scenes were directed by Matt Shakman (WandaVision).

The official synopsis for the series :
Following the thunderous battle between Godzilla and the Titans that leveled San Francisco and the shocking revelation that monsters are real, “Monarch: Legacy of Monsters” tracks two siblings following in their father’s footsteps to uncover their family’s connection to the secretive organization known as Monarch. Clues lead them into the world of monsters and ultimately down the rabbit hole to Army officer Lee Shaw (played by Kurt Russell and Wyatt Russell), taking place in the 1950s and half a century later where Monarch is threatened by what Shaw knows. The dramatic saga – spanning three generations – reveals buried secrets and the ways that epic, earth-shattering events can reverberate through our lives.
