Apple TV+ continues to quietly compile a rather impressive catalog of films and TV series. With award-winning hits like Ted Lasso and Dickinson under its belt, the creative powers-that-be at the streaming service seek to add a major addition to their lineup. According to The Wrap, a Godzilla spinoff series is currently in active development.
Per the initial report, Legendary Television will produce the series co-created by Chris Black (Star Trek: Enterprise) and Hawkeye scribe Matt Fraction. Additionally, the duo will serve as series executive producers with Black stepping in as showrunner. Hiro Matsuoka (Detective Pikachu) and Joby Harold (Transformers: Rise of the Beasts) will also executive produce as well.
Check out the official logline for the series:
“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.”
The Godzilla franchise consists of 36 films; 32 produced by Toho Co., one produced by TriStar Pictures, and three produced by Legendary Pictures. Overall, the films have grossed over $2 billion at the worldwide box office. Most recently, Legendary and Warner Bros. released Godzilla vs. Kong in 2021. In his review for the blockbuster, Full Circle’s own James Preston Poole says he “did have fun watching Godzilla vs. Kong. It’s loud and dumb, but it’s a diverting blockbuster all the same.”
