Monarch: Legacy of Monsters revolves around a family uncovering their hidden ties to the secretive Monarch organization.
The official Synopsis of the MonsterVerse series is as follows-

“Clues lead them into the world of monsters and ultimately down the rabbit hole to Army officer Lee Shaw, 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 and the ways that epic, earth-shattering events can reverberate through our lives.”
