Monarch: Legacy of Monsters” will make its global debut with the first two episodes on Friday, November 17, 2023, followed by one episode every Friday through January 12, 2024, on Apple TV+.
The ten-episode sci-fi drama is based on Legendary’s Monsterverse and is co-developed and executive-produced by Chris Black and Matt Fraction.

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.
