The new Godzilla show Monarch: Legacy of Monsters launches this week, so when and where can you watch it? And is the series streaming?

The MonsterVerse is an American take on the monster movies created by Japanese studio Toho in the 1950s. This new iteration launched in 2014 via Gareth Edwards’ mega-hit Godzilla.

Sequels and prequels followed, including Kong: Skull Island (2017), Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019), and Godzilla vs. Kong (2021). While in 2024 we get Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire.
