Apple TV+ has revealed the first details of "Monarch: Legacy of Monsters," a forthcoming 10-part series starring Kurt Russell, and coming as part of Legendary Entertainment's Monsterverse.

Science fiction has proved a hit for Apple TV+ with shows such as "Foundation," and also "Silo," the streamer's highest-rating series to date. It's done less well with fantasy series like "See," but now it's tapping into the hit Monsterverse series of movies with "Monarch: Legacy of Monsters."

"Following the thunderous battle between Godzilla and the Titans that leveled San Francisco and the shocking revelation that monsters are real," says Apple, "'Monarch: Legacy of Monsters' tracks two siblings following in their father's footsteps to uncover their family's connection to the secretive organization known as Monarch."

"Clues lead them into the world of monsters and ultimately down the rabbit hole to Army officer Lee Shaw (played by Kurt Russell and Wyatt Russell)," it continues," taking place in the 1950s and half a century later where Monarch is threatened by what Shaw knows."

"The dramatic saga - spanning three generations - reveals buried secrets," says Apple, "and the ways that epic, earth-shattering events can reverberate through our lives."

"Monarch" stars Kurt Russell, Wyatt Russell, Anna Sawai, Kiersey Clemons, Ren Watabe, Mari Yamamoto, Anders Holm, Joe Tippett and Elisa Lasowski.

It's developed by "Severance" and "Star Trek" writer Chris Black, who has also written several of the ten episodes. Other writers include Andrew Colville, best known for "Mad Men," and Milla Bell-Hart, who wrote for "Truth Be Told."

Apple has not yet announced a streaming date for the series.
