    Serious is an adjective, not a noun.

    Both are possible.

    He is aiming for a more serious approach this time.

    More forms the comparitive version of serious. If we say it is more serious, we are suggesting a comparision. As in my example, he is aiming for a more serious approach this time (he is more serious than he was last time).

    He has given the offer much serious thought.


    Much serves to express an amount: a large amount.

    We can also say 'much more serious'.
    The problem is much more serious than it was two days ago.
