In a recent interaction with The Direct, the creative minds behind "Monarch: Legacy of Monsters" shared insights on the potential of a second season. Executive Producer Matt Fraction highlighted that the series wasn't conceived as a limited run. He expressed a keen interest in continuing the adventure.
He said: “Well, it wasn’t designed as a limited series. We certainly love the characters and playing in the world. And if we are so lucky and so fortunate, I think we could keep going for as long as people want to keep watching, quite honestly. Yeah.”
“We love the story that we told this season,” said fellow Executive Producer Tory Tunnel. ”And we hope that people will show up. And you know, if they do in droves, and then hopefully, it’ll give us an opportunity to tell more.”
Chris Black, the showrunner, emphasized the crucial role of viewer response in determining the show’s future.
“I mean, it’s kind of really up to the viewers and the fans. We hope that they respond to the story that, what we’re telling, [and] that they’ll want to see more. We had to sort of build this from the ground up as a TV series, as something that was going to go for 10 hours and hopefully, if we’re lucky, two seasons, three seasons–whatever we’re lucky enough to get.”
Director Matt Shakman also chimed in saying:
“We poured our heart and soul into this season. We love it. We’re so proud of it. We hope people love it. If I could knock on some wood, I would hate to talk about future seasons until people have a chance to watch this one. And hopefully, they love it.”
The series, buoyed by positive reviews and the legacy of Godzilla, seems well-positioned for a sequel. However, the entertainment industry's unpredictable nature means nothing is certain. The upcoming "Godzilla X Kong" film, continuing the MonsterVerse saga, might also influence the series' future.
