Resident Evil, the Netflix TV series? Oh yes! (horror TV news).

August 29, 2020 | By | Reply More

Netflix will be bringing a live action TV series based on Resident Evil to the streams via Constantin Film. The Walking Dead‘s Bronwen Hughes will direct and executive produce the first two episodes. Capcom launched the survival horror game in 1996, since expanded into a six-film franchise, also produced by Constantin Film.

Resident Evil will detail their eight-episode series one for Netflix across two timelines:

In the first timeline, fourteen-year-old sisters Jade and Billie Wesker are moved to New Raccoon City. A manufactured, corporate town, forced on them right as adolescence is in full swing. But the more time they spend there, the more they come to realize that the town is more than it seems and their father may be concealing dark secrets. Secrets that could destroy the world.

Cut to the second timeline, well over a decade into the future: there are less than fifteen million people left on Earth. But more than six billion monsters – people and animals infected with the T-virus. Jade, now thirty, struggles to survive in this New World, while the secrets from her past – about her sister, her father and herself – continue to haunt her.

Andrew Dabb, the new series’ Showrunner, wryly noted, “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.”
