Monarch: Legacy of Monsters – Kiersey Clemons Teases Intriguing Possibilities for May in Season 2

Monarch Legacy of Monsters season 2

Apple TV+’s Monarch: Legacy of Monsters Season 1 was an intense roller coaster ride for fans. Now, they are eagerly awaiting for the potential second season. Kiersey Clemons, who portrayed May, recently shared thoughts on the character’s potential journey in an exclusive interview with The Direct’s Russ Milheim.

After a compelling Season 1 finale, Clemons expressed her curiosity about May’s next steps. Particularly, she emphasized the pivotal choice of which pill May would choose and the consequences of her reunion with APEX, working alongside Kentaro and his father.

Clemons hinted at a desire to explore May’s resistance to capitalist ideals. She envisioned May facing challenges that forced her to confront and participate in the very system she had vehemently opposed.

“I guess I really want to know which pill she chooses?... I would want to see if she, this time, doesn't get to run away as easily, and maybe she is finally forced to participate in this capitalistic bullshit that she always said she wouldn't participate in.”

The actress expressed her enthusiasm for portraying May’s potential struggles within the capitalistic framework.

I would really love to see her struggle in that.”

The actress envisioned a dynamic shift in May’s character, suggesting the possibility of May acquiring power and potentially misusing it.

 “I would kinda like to see her even maybe have a bit of power, and maybe she misuses it.

Clemons expressed openness to May being a complex and even unlikable character, emphasizing a desire for May to be charismatic yet deceitful in navigating the intricate world of Monarch.

“I am totally open to May not being likable. I would love to be kind of a somehow charismatic, deceitful bitch that would make me happy if that's who made the game.”

In a lighthearted moment, Clemons revealed her stance on the eternal debate between Godzilla and Kong. While expressing a personal inclination towards Kong, she ultimately leaned towards Godzilla, admitting the difficulty of choosing between the two iconic monsters.

“I think Kong… I'm gonna say... Oh, that's so hard. Um, oh. I don't know. I feel like I have to say Godzilla. Because that's weird… I want to say Kong, but I think that—I don't know. Something about that doesn't sit right with me. I gotta pick Godzilla.”

As anticipation builds for the potential return of Monarch: Legacy of Monsters for Season 2, Kiersey Clemons’ insights offer a glimpse into the intriguing and multifaceted journey that May may embark upon.  Fans can only speculate for season 2 on the exciting developments and challenges that await May until official confirmation.
