Monarch: Legacy of Monsters showrunner Chris Black is optimistic about the chances of a season 2 renewal from Apple.

The explosive season finale of Monarch: Legacy of Monsters premiered today, but fans are left wondering whether or not Apple will renew the series for season 2.

Nothing has been officially announced yet, but Monarch: Legacy of Monsters showrunner Chris Black told TVLine earlier in the week that although “we do no have a season 2 order,” the show has “done very well, so we’re optimistic and excited. We feel we have more story to tell.” Fingers crossed.

Following the thunderous battle between Godzilla and the Titans that leveled San Francisco and the shocking revelation that monsters are real, Monarch: Legacy of Monsters tracks two siblings following in their father’s footsteps to uncover their family’s connection to the secretive organization known as Monarch,” reads the official synopsis. “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.” You can check out a review of the series from our own Alex Maidy right here.
