James R | On 21, Jan 2022
Apple TV+ has given a series order for a new original live-action series from Legendary’s Monsterverse franchise. Following the thunderous battle between Godzilla and the Titans that levelled San Francisco and the shocking revelation that monsters are real, the series explores one family’s journey to uncover its buried secrets and a legacy linking them to the secret organisation known as Monarch.
The untitled Monsterverse series will be produced by Legendary Television and executive produced by co-creators Chris Black (Star Trek: Enterprise, Outcast), who will also serve as showrunner, and Matt Fraction (Hawkeye), alongside Safehouse Pictures’ Joby Harold and Tory Tunnell, and Toho Co., Ltd. Hiro Matsuoka and Takemasa Arita will executive produce for Toho. Toho has licensed the rights to Legendary for this series as a natural byproduct of their long-term relationship on the film franchise.
Legendary’s Monsterverse began in 2014 with Godzilla and continued with 2017’s Kong: Skull Island, 2019’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters and 2021’s Godzilla vs. Kong, Monsterverse films have accumulated close to 2 billion dollars globally at the box office and the universe is ever expanding with the latest iteration being a new anime series for Netflix, Skull Island.
