Resident Evil Afterlife still

Today’s release of the “Resident Evil 2” video game remake isn’t the only exciting “Resident Evil” news of the week. Deadline is reporting that a “Resident Evil” television series is in the works from Netflix.

According to the article the series will be based on the action horror film franchise and expand upon the established universe and deepen the existing mythology.

“I hear the series will keep the basic premise, which also served as a setup for the movie franchise. The drama series will explore the dark inner workings of the Umbrella Corporation and the new world order caused by the outbreak of the T-virus,” detailed Deadline TV Editor Nellie Andreeva.

Nothing has been officially announced from Netflix or Constantin Film, the distribution and production company behind the Resident Evil films and nobody is currently tied to the project as a showrunner.
