The Post-Millennium era is an unofficial placeholder term used to refer to the Godzilla films produced by Toho Company Ltd. after the close of the Millennium series in 2004 with Godzilla: Final Wars. Currently, this includes Shin Godzilla and the GODZILLA anime trilogy. The Post-Millennium era overlaps with Legendary Pictures' MonsterVerse time-wise, but is considered to be a separate series due to being produced by a separate studio and not sharing continuity with the MonsterVerse.
Worth reiterating is that "Post-Millennium" is only an unofficial placeholder term, as Toho has not designated any of its recent Godzilla films as comprising a distinct "era," such as the Showa, Heisei or Millennium series, and will be replaced if an official name is given by Toho. The term "Post-Millennium" describes the fact that all of these films were released after the close of the Millennium series in 2004, and are not themselves considered part of the Millennium series. The films classified as "Post-Millennium" also do not all share continuity, as Shin Godzilla and the trilogy of anime Godzilla films are set in different continuities.
In 2004, Toho announced that Godzilla: Final Wars, the sixth and final entry in the Millennium series, would be the last Godzilla film for a period of at least ten years. In 2014, the American studio Legendary Pictures produced Godzilla, which would kick off the studio's MonsterVerse series of films. Toho in the meantime had begun pre-production on its next Godzilla film, and hired Hideaki Anno and Shinji Higuchi to write and direct the film. Following the financial success of Legendary's film, Toho formally announced production of its new film. Shin Godzilla was released in 2016, and was a considerable critical and financial success. Whether or not a sequel to Shin Godzilla or another live-action Toho Godzilla film will be released in the near future remains to be seen. However, the terms of Toho's contract with Legendary dictate that they cannot produce another live-action Godzilla film until after Godzilla vs. Kong is released in 2020. Keiji Ota, the man in charge of overseeing the Godzilla franchise for Toho, has stated that the company has no plans for a Shin Godzilla 2 but instead plans to launch a cinematic universe featuring Godzilla and the company's other monsters following the expiration of its contract with Legendary in 2020.

GODZILLA Anime Trilogy
Following the release of Shin Godzilla, Toho Animation announced that it would be partnering with animation studio Polygon Pictures to produce the first-ever animated Godzilla film, tentatively scheduled for a 2017 theatrical release in Japan. In March 2017, Toho revealed the film's title, GODZILLA: Planet of the Monsters, and that it would be the first entry in a trilogy of anime Godzilla films. GODZILLA: Planet of the Monsters was released to Japanese theaters in November 2017. The second entry was released in May 2018, followed by the third film was released in November 2018. All three films became available to stream internationally on Netflix exactly two months after their Japanese theatrical premieres.
