The 7th live-action series is going to release on Netflix in 2021 named Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness.
It’s been more than a year since we first caught wind of it, but now it’s official. Netflix has confirmed they are making a live-action Resident Evil TV series. The first season will have eight episodes; each episode is one hour each. According to Netflix, the show will tell a brand new story across two timelines explaining the quote. In the first timeline, 14-year-old sisters Jade and Billy Wesker are moved to a new raccoon city. A manufactured corporate town is forced on them right as adolescents are in full swing.
But the more time they spend there, the more time they come to realize that the town is more than it seems. Their father (who we’re presuming as Albert Wesker) may be concealing dark secrets. Secrets that could destroy the world. This can cut the second timeline, more than a decade in the future.
The virus named T-virus is so deadly that less than 15 million people are alive, and more than 6 billion monsters (animals and people infected by the virus). Jade struggles to survive, but the secrets from herself, her sister, and her father continue to haunt her. Netflix releases the image of the first script on Twitter, so that’s something, and the image does reveal who will be working on the show. The show will be brought to Undead’s life by Showrunner and writer Andrew Dab from supernatural and director Bronwyn Hughes from The Walking Dead, who’ll direct the first two episodes.
Andrew Dab said in a statement quote, “Resident Evil is my favorite game of all time. Everyone is incredibly excited to see a new chapter in this amazing story and the first-ever resident evil series to Netflix members worldwide. For every type of resident evil fan, including those joining us for the first time, the series will be complete with many old friends, and some things (bloodthirsty, insane things) people have never seen before. So are you ready to return to Raccoon City?
