Legendary and Toho have agreed to produce a new live action Monsterverse TV series in partnership with Apple TV Plus. The show will expand the Monsterverse lore and introduce new characters and new Titans to the cinematic universe. Following our previous announcement last week about the upcoming series, an official plot synopsis was spotted over on SciFi Japan, which provides some significant details about when this series will take place within the Monsterverse chronology.
According to the current, official plot synopsis:
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.
This also insituates that we will likely not be seeing any other iconic Toho monsters reimagined for the series. Given that it was only in the sequel, King of the Monsters that other Toho monsters made their debut into the Monsterverse. This series sounds like an opportunity to explore new Titans unique to the Monsterverse itself without the reliance on established Toho characters.
This also insituates that the Hollow Earth and its Monsters will not be explored since its discovery was only made apparent in Godzilla vs. Kong.
That being said however, it is possible Kong may be involved, given that Kong: Skull Island takes place prior to Godzilla (2014).
