Monarch: Legacy of Monsters | Matt Shakman on the Human Story in the Godzilla Universe

Monarch: Legacy of Monsters

Although Godzilla and the Titans have taken over the world, Monarch: Legacy of Monsters is a race for humans to prevent the next catastrophe that can destroy civilizations.

The ten-episode series is based on Legendary’s Monsterverse that followed the films 2014’s Godzilla, Kong: Skull Island, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, and Godzilla vs. Kong.

The series star Kurt Russell, Wyatt Russell, Anna Sawai, Kiersey Clemons, Ren Watabe, Mari Yamamoto, Anders Holm, Joe Tippett, and Elisa Lasowski.

Here is the full synopsis of 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.
