Fresh on the heels of the Resident Evil 2 remaster, it has been rumored that a TV series based on the gaming franchise could be in the works.
According to a Deadline report, the show is being developed by Netflix alongside Constantin Film, the studio who were behind the original run of Resident Evil movies. No showrunner has been announced, and further details are quite scarce – but it seems the series is set to expand on the Resident Evil universe and mythology behind the Umbrella Corporation and the T-Virus. You can also expect there to be iconic elements from the games such as action sequences and ‘Easter Eggs’.
The show is effectively a reboot of the movie franchise which starred Milla Jovovich and was written (and mostly directed) by Paul W. S. Anderson. Whether these names return in some capacity will remain to be seen.
