Apple TV+ is making a series set in Legendary’s MonsterVerse that includes movies like Godzilla vs. Kong. The show will be live action, and continue the story of humanity’s battle to survive in a world populated with city-crushing behemoths.

Godzilla and the MonsterVerse on Apple TV+

Legendary’s MonsterVerse kicked off in 2014 with Godzilla and continued in 2017 with Kong: Skull Island. These were followed by 2019’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters and 2021’s Godzilla vs. Kong.

The Apple TV+ series — which is currently unnamed — will explore a family’s journey to uncover its buried secrets and a legacy linking them to the secret organization known as Monarch, according to Apple.

It’s being co-created by Matt Fraction (Hawkeye) and Chris Black (Star Trek: Enterprise, Outcast). Black will also serve as showrunner.

For those who have not seen any of the MonsterVerse films, (1) What’s wrong with you? and (2) Rest assured that the days of old rubber suits are long gone. CGI makes Godzilla and those he battles far more realistic. That’s helped the film series rake in close to $2 billion globally so far.

When Apple TV+ will premiere its Godzilla series is not yet known.

Apple offers plenty of sci-fi

While it’ll likely be a while before Godzilla stomps onto Apple’s streaming service, there’s already plenty of sci-fi on it. There’s the adaptation of Isaac Asimov’s Foundation and multiple seasons of the alternate-history For All Mankind. Both Dr. Brain and Swan Song are smart sci-fi that premiered recently.

Any and all of these come with a $4.99-per-month subscription to Apple TV+.
