The Godzilla TV series Monarch: Legacy of Monsters premieres on Apple TV+ later this month, but a clip of the opening scene is online now

Legendary’s MonsterVerse Godzilla TV series Monarch: Legacy of Monsters is set to premiere on Apple TV+ with the first two episodes on Friday, November 17, followed by one episode every Friday through January 12. (You can read our own Alex Maidy’s review of the first batch of episodes HERE.) We’re now two weeks away from that premiere – but today happens to be Godzilla Day, the anniversary of the release of the original Godzilla movie back in 1954. And to celebrate Godzilla Day, Legendary and AppleTV+ have released (via IGN) a clip from Monarch: Legacy of Monsters‘ opening scene. Scroll down to the bottom of this article to check it out!

Milan Records has also started taking pre-orders for the album release of the score composed by Leopold Ross. Click that pre-order and you’ll also have the chance to listen to the main title music Ross came up with for the show.

Monarch: Legacy of Monsters is the latest chapter in Legendary Entertainment’s Monsterverse series, which currently consists of Godzilla, Kong: Skull Island, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, Godzilla vs. Kong, and the Netflix animated series Skull Island.

The ten episode series is set after “the thunderous battle between Godzilla and the Titans that leveled San Francisco and the shocking revelation that monsters are real” (as seen in Godzilla 2014). It 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.

Kurt Russell, Wyatt Russell, Anna Sawai, Kiersey Clemons, Ren Watabe, Mari Yamamoto, Anders Holm, Joe Tippett, and Elisa Lasowski star alongside Godzilla, who is said to have a “very important role” in the series.

Monarch: Legacy of Monsters is coming our way from Legendary Television. Black, Fraction, and Shakman are executive producing the series with Joby Harold and Tory Tunnell from Safehouse Pictures, as well as Andy Goddard, Brad Van Arragon, and Andrew Colville. Hiro Matsuoka and Takemasa Arita executive produce on behalf of Toho Co., Ltd., the owner of the Godzilla character. The series was co-developed by Chris Black (Star Trek: Enterprise) and Matt Fraction (Hawkeye). Matt Shakman (WandaVision) directed the first two episodes.

Beyond this show, Godzilla vs. Kong director Adam Wingard is working on a follow-up to that film called Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire.
