Bring on the zombies and the Umbrella Corporation, because Resident Evil is making it’s way to the Netflix streaming service. The last time that the news broke was back in January of last year that Constantin and Netflix were searching for the right showrunner to “shepherd the adaptation” that would expand the Resident Evil universe and deepen the existing mythology, keeping the basic premise, but also serving as a setup for the movie franchise.
The drama/ horror series will explore the dark inner workings of the Umbrella Corporation and the new world order caused by the outbreak of the T-virus.
We‘ll let you know when we hear more.
All that I have to say is they better put Jill Valentine into the series and not as a cameo character, because she was one of my favorite characters when she was introduced into the second Resident Evil video game. I’m excited that this TV series is happening and they are going to be giving us better versions of the characters that we got in the movie franchise.
So is your trigger finger getting a little happy that we are finally getting a Resident Evil TV series on Netflix?
