Legendary pictures’ MonsterVerse was officially set to make a return to the TV screen at Apple TV +. The announcement came recently when Deadline has announced a landmark deal that will bring Legendary’s existing franchise to Apple TV +. It has also been revealed that an untitled live action television series taking place in the MonsterVerse is already in the works, and will feature Godzilla and several other titans.

The latest MonsterVerse film was a huge success as it became one of the biggest box office hits of 2021.

The untitled series will be produced by Legendary Television and co-created by Chris Black (who will also serve as showrunner) and Matt Fraction, along with Safehouse Pictures’s Joby Harold and Tory Tunnell and Toho Co. Ltd. Hiro Matsuoka and Takemasa Arita will produce executive for Toho. It has been reported that Apple may have had “immediate interest” in Legendary’s pitch, as its streaming service wants more established IPs.
While MonsterVerse fans are really excited about this recent announcement, some people have wondered why the upcoming Godzilla series did not stay with HBO Max. It easily makes sense since Warner Bros. Pictures and HBO Max all fall into the same company, but of course money has become the overall deciding factor. According to Justin Kroll of Deadline, he explains, “Legendary saw an opportunity to get the best price by taking it to market rather than going directly to HBO Max and from what I heard, Apple was the forerunner to to launch the series very early. ” Although HBO Max is not involved in the brand new series, it does not mean that the streaming service will not follow another MonsterVerse project in the near future.
