After the massive success of Godzilla vs Kong the future plans for the MonsterVerse at Legendary has been up in the air. Now we know where the big radioactive lizard will show up next!
Godzilla is getting a live action streaming series set in Legendary’s MonsterVerse that will stream on Apple TV+.
Per The Hollywood Reporter:
“The series is ‘following the thunderous battle between Godzilla and the Titans that leveled San Francisco and the shocking new reality that monsters are real,’ and will explore ‘one family’s journey to uncover its buried secrets and a legacy linking them to the secret organization known as Monarch.’
Hailing from Legendary Television, the show will be executive produced by Chris Black, the sci-fi veteran behind Star Trek Enterprise and Robert Kirkman series Outcast, and Matt Fraction, best known for his award-winning comic book work such as Marvel Comics’ Hawkeye. The two will act as the show’s co-creators with Black as the showrunner.
Legendary already is developing the next untitled film set in the Monsterverse but saw potential in developing a series and began talking to buyers that were interested. Apple showed immediate interest as it looks to add more branded IP to a slate of original TV series that continues to grow, and a deal was soon struck to start development on the series.
Beginning in 2014 with Godzilla and continuing with 2017’s Kong: Skull Island, 2019’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters, and 2021’s Godzilla vs. Kong, Monsterverse films have accumulated nearly $2 billion at the global box office and is expanding with a new anime series, Skull Island.
