‘Resident Evil’ TV Series Confirmed by Netflix With New Details!


Resident Evil is finally headed to our television screens once again, and this time as a television series! According to Deadline, Netflix has given the go ahead on an eight-episode order for a drama series inspired by Capcom’s wildly popular survival horror game franchise.

Written by Supernatural executive producer Andrew Dabb and produced by Constantin Film, the geniuses behind the Resident Evil movies, the series will produce a whole new story to follow across two timelines.

In the first timeline, 14-year-old sisters Jade and Billie Wesker have just moved to New Raccoon City with their father Albert Wesker, who we know from the video game franchise as the main antagonist. We follow the two as they begin to explore the city and uncover the secrets that both the city and their father hide.

Fast forward to the second timeline, 16 years into the future. With billions of monsters running rampant and the population of the Earth slowly dwindling, we follow along with Jade as she struggles to survive in this new distorted utopia while remembering the secrets she uncovers about her family and who she truly is.

The Resident Evil television series was pitched for development at Netflix in early 2019 when the streaming service decided to begin searching for a writer. The series is expected to incorporate all of Resident Evil‘s iconic features, such as the action sequences and all of the “Easter eggs.”

Writer Andrew Dabb, who will also serve as the show runner, hinted that some familiar faces from the franchise along with some new ones will appear in the show. Dabb executive produces the series along with Robert Kulzer and Oliver Berben of Constantin Film and Mary Leah Sutton. Constantin Film CEO Martin Moszkowicz will also produce.

Bronwen Hughes director of The Walking Dead, 13 Reasons Why, and Breaking Bad, will direct and produce the first two episodes in the series. The first episode in the series is to be titled “Welcome to Raccoon City.”

Stay tuned for more updates on the show’s development!
