Given the positive reception “Monarch: Legacy of Monsters” has received, it wouldn’t be a surprise if Legendary gave fans an encore. So far, the series has proven that diving deep into unexplored corners of the interconnected MonsterVerse offers a wealth of character and storytelling possibilities not feasible within the limits of a two-hour blockbuster. Even if the storyline is wrapped up by the end of Season 1, Season 2 could explore the backstories of some of the franchise’s fan-favorite characters and appease those who want to learn more about them while giving the show its own identity as an anthology series.
As of now, there is no definitive answer as to whether or not Season 2 will come to fruition. In an interview with Inverse, director Matt Shakman remained tight-lipped on the matter, stating, “I can’t speak about future plans for Monarch just because we’re so excited about launching our first season.” The MonsterVerse has largely played a game of wait-and-see before announcing any new large-scale projects, so such ambiguity isn’t surprising. Until then, fans still have the next big-screen installment to look forward to, with “Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire” set to be released in April 2024.
