Has Monarch: Legacy of Monsters been renewed for Season 2? Here’s what we know:

Renewed Or Cancelled?

With Godzilla Minus One being as successful as it is, people are even more in love with the great Kaiju now than perhaps they were before. Monarch: Legacy of Monsters, part of Warner Bros’ Monsterverse, also follows Godzilla and explores many other monsters. If you’re a fan of the genre, you must check it out.

After finishing this season, you may be wondering if this has been renewed or cancelled. Here’s what we know:


What is Monarch: Legacy of Monsters about?

The Monsterverse is still alive, and Monarch: Legacy of Monsters is ready to expand it even more. The show follows Cate, a woman traumatized after Godzilla attacked San Francisco, as she uncovers her late father’s many mysteries.

When she travels to Tokyo to visit his apartment, she finds out he has another family. With her step-brother and his friend May, she’ll find out more about his father and what is Monarch. At the same time, we go back to the past to unravel the beginnings of this organization and the monsters inhabiting their world.

Has Monarch: Legacy of Monsters been renewed for season 2?

At the time of writing, Monarch: Legacy of Monsters has not been renewed for a second season. Given the nature of the show’s content, that could well change if it does good numbers for AppleTV+.

Generally AppleTV+ gauges numerous metrics before renewing a show, including how many people initially watch it and then looking at the drop-off rate. Even so, the streaming service rarely cancels one of its shows after only a season, giving it more chances to attract viewers.

So far, Monarch: Legacy of Monsters has had an average reaction from critics and audiences alike, with many discussing the lack of action and the annoying characters. Even though most people agree with that, many still have found the show to be entertaining enough.

Given the way this show is set up, we’re predicting that this will be renewed for a second season. Besides most AppleTV+ shows not being cancelled in their first seasons, a lot of them take a while to get an official renewal. Severance, for example, one of their greatest hits took four months to get news of a second season.

We’ll be sure to update this section with accurate details over the coming weeks and months when we know more!


What we know about season 2 so far:

Barely anything is known about season 2 at this point, given AppleTV+ has not green-lit a sequel. However, if this is renewed expect the story to focus a lot more on Apex Cybernetics instead of Monarch. As Kentaro, Hiroshi, and Tim have been working for them for the past two years, their affiliation might be strong.

However, that might also lead to conflicts between the characters. Cate, May, and Keiko were stuck in Axis Mundi, so things are very different for them now. Also, they will most likely have problems with the way Apex does things. Not to mention, May has a history with the organization and she’ll be very suspicious of everything it does.

May and Cate might have a big development in season 2, as they got really close to each other during the first season. Many viewers theorize they’ll start dating soon.

As mentioned above, we predict that this will be renewed but we’ll have to wait and see what happens. We’ll be sure to update this page in the future when more information is known though!
