New Resident Evil Series For Netflix


Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness has been revealed to the world and will be coming exclusively to Netflix.

Netflix has recently announced that the new scripted live-action series Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness is actively being developed and is headed by none other than Supernatural Executive Producer and co-showrunner Andrew Dabb.

The announcement came at the Tokyo Game Show 2020, and has been teased with a short enticing trailer:

This short little snippet of a trailer gives an impression of an animated series that will not be for the faint of heart and in the end, we get the only tangible information which is that this new series will be coming in 2021.

This new live-action series will be eight episodes long and will feature an original story set within the Resident Evil. World, set across two timelines. The first of these will see sisters Jade and Billie Wesker (presumably of some relation to longtime series antagonist Albert Wesker) move to the town of New Raccoon City at age 14, before realizing the destination and their father “may be concealing dark secrets.”

The second of the timelines will jump 16 years forward, with the Earth devastated by Resident Evil’s signature zombie-making T-virus, and focus on Jade (and the less than 15 million human survivors) trying to survive in a world overrun by six billion mutated monsters.

According to Netflix:

“When the Wesker kids move to New Raccoon City, the secrets they uncover might just be the end of everything. Resident Evil, a new live-action series based on Capcom’s legendary survival horror franchise, is coming to Netflix.”

Netflix officially tweeted the announcement recently giving us a little more information:

Andrew Dabb has said in an official statement :

“Resident Evil is my favorite game of all time. I’m incredibly excited to tell a new chapter in this amazing story and bring the first-ever Resident Evil series to Netflix members around the world. For every type of Resident Evil fan, including those joining us for the first time, the series will be complete with a lot of old friends, and some things (bloodthirsty, insane things) people have never seen before.”

While Netflix’s Resident Evil is being produced by the same production company, it’s not yet clear if the story will tie in or crossover to the film franchise in any way.

Unfortunately, Netflix nor anyone else has given any more solid information. It is clear though that this series will be a must-watch for Resident Evil fans and in fact fans of the Horror genre as a whole.
