Even though they're full of poop, We got this covered did say a Godzilla monarch series was coming back during Godzilla vs Kong's marketing.
The show was being mentioned as a possibility during KOTM's press. It sure is nice to see it all come to fruition!
Yeah, there's always been talk of a Monarch/MonsterVerse TV show since at least KSI, even if it was mostly fan discussion around that time.

Could you please give me the source? I tried to search on my own, but I couldn't find it.

Or are you talking about this?

Apparently new info from KDM;
Spoiler:
The 6 main characters are:
Cate, May. Kentaro. Emiko. Keiko. Hiroshi.
In short and without major spoilers:

Cate goes to Japan, where she discovers that her family has a connection to Monarch. She is a young woman, Japanese-American.
Kentaro: Japanese, Goes to Japan from London... within the storyline, Kentaro finds out more about his "mysterious" father.
Kentaro's mother: Emiko
Kentaro's father: Hiroshi. Hiroshi is a scientist who cares more about his work than his family. As the story unfolds, Kentaro finds out who his father really is and what connects him to Monarch.
May: super-intelligent young lady. ALWAYS 2-3 steps ahead of all other characters.
Cate also finds out about a past "secret" and a connection to the secret organization called the MONARCH. In the course of the story, the characters meet each other and have to realize that "time" is running, and the "new" world where monsters exist will bring a big change, because Godzilla and the MUTOs are not the only monsters whose Existence one now tries to keep secret.

I'm not. He really enjoyed GvK.

I think once we start seeing trailers & more info on the show, we'll get more interest from the general audience.

Most people enjoyed GvK, so I'm pretty confident we'll get goodwill from the GA on the show & the next film(s). The future of the MonsterVerse is looking pretty good.

Not a fan of wokism in films, but I'm not understanding how you pulled that out of a name.

It’s actually pretty interesting to go back in time… especially with a franchise like this. I’m sensing a lot more human drama than we’re use to though for something Godzilla related. Which is fine but need to make tge Godzilla/Titans moments worthwhile.

I’m pretty sure Apple didn’t spend all that money outbidding other studios for this project for it not to have a decent amount of Godzilla/Titan action

Remember we’re in the streaming wars and Apple needs established IP’s to compete with the other services. I wouldn’t be surprised for them to make this series a huge priority

I have no expectations for this show (I'd love for it to be amazing, but I have a gut feeling it won't), so I don't really care about spoilers at present. As such, I think I'll actually stick around and follow the speculation this time. I've mostly missed out on the movie buildup, and I've always regretted that. I can already see that this thread is going to be a better show than anything Apple comes out with. We're only in the first episode, and there's already a delightfully caustic brew of emotional drama simmering. Hope. Hype. Fear. Desperation. Delusion. Belligerence. It's all here, and set to explode later in the season. *grabs popcorn*

I really want to see Tiamat in live-action. That’s one of my big hopes.

You’re really going to go through all that trouble just to avoid paying $4.99 that you can easily cancel after watching the series?

Did someone actually just use that word in 2022? Actual cringe right there

The characters here sound...fine enough, I guess. Its not a lot to go off of but they don't sound particularly interesting for me. This sounds like some plotline Ive seen a dozen times before.
