Legendary has announced that MonsterVerse are finally getting a TV series but what surprised everyone that the show is not coming to HBO Max, considering the latest film “Godzilla vs Kong” was joined production with WarnerBros who owned HBO Max.
All told, the film made over 1.9 billion in the US and 468 million dollars worldwide, with those numbers and how the world of King Kong and Godzilla is expanded, it’s not surprising that those numbers gave Legendary the push to expand the world even further as TV series.
Still, with the great upset of being Apple TV+, fans are wondering whether or not we will the return of the kings and gods of the MonsterVerse, and how it will play with the film continuity and what’s the story will be.
Well, we will tell you everything you need to know about Apple TV+ MonsterVerse series!
When will the MonsterVerse series release?
Per the official press release from Apple TV+, the network only just announced that the untitled “MonsterVerse” series was in development. With this in mind, it’s honestly impossible to give a concrete answer when it comes to a release date for the show. The premium network did announce that it would be live-action, and development will likely take some time. This is especially true considering the CGI that will likely be needed for a “MonsterVerse” franchise entry.
Once again, it’s impossible to say for sure when fans could see the series make its debut on Apple TV+. However, if everything goes well and the COVID-19 pandemic doesn’t slow things down, there’s likely no reason that fans couldn’t see the show debut sometime in late 2023 or early 2024. This is by no means guaranteed, however, and there’s every chance that the series could premiere much later than that. As it is now, fans will simply have to wait and see what happens.
Who is in the cast for the MonsterVerse series?
While Apple TV+ announced the untitled “MonsterVerse” series was in development and that Chris Black and Matt Fraction would be developing the series, no cast members were confirmed. However, given that the series takes place in an established universe with a large stable of characters, it’s entirely possible that some of them could make their return on the show. This could be anyone from Millie Bobby Brown’s Madison to Alexander Skarsgård’s Dr. Nathan Lind, as both characters played pivotal parts in the “Godzilla vs. Kong” film.
However, it’s also impossible to say that any of these characters will appear in a television series, and it’s entirely possible that those developing the show will want to fill the series with new characters and actors. From the description of the plot, it’s known that the series will focus on a family, so new actors will be needed to fill those roles. Either way, neither Apple TV+ nor anyone involved with development of the “MonsterVerse” series has confirmed any cast members thus far.
What is the plot for the MonsterVerse series?
The official press release for the untitled “MonsterVerse” series doesn’t really give much in the way of plot details, but fans will be interested to learn that the events of the show will take place after the events of the 2014 version of “Godzilla,” but not necessarily after “Godzilla vs. Kong” or any other film in the franchise. The press release states, “Following the thunderous battle between Godzilla and the Titans that leveled San Francisco and the shocking new reality that monsters are real, the series explores one family’s journey to uncover its buried secrets and a legacy linking them to the secret organization known as Monarch.”
It looks as if the show will be more of a mystery and adventure type of series, though it wouldn’t be surprising to see some Titans or other monsters make appearances here and there, given that it’s a “MonsterVerse” entry. Still, more concrete plot details will likely become clear as Apple and Legendary release more information about the upcoming show.
