The film series based on the “Resident Evil” video game franchise is set to close up shop with its upcoming sixth entry “Resident Evil: The Final Chapter” which will begin shooting midway through next year. Constantin Film, who produces the franchise, has no plans to let it rest at that though.
Along with announcing TV series based on some of its films like the Ben Whishaw-led “Perfume” and the young adult supernatural tale “The Mortal Instruments,” the company used the Mipcom TV market in Cannes to announce that “Resident Evil” will also live on as a TV series.
Specifically the plan is to adapt the property as a TV series to air after the final film has been released. Whether this will continue events or serve as a straight up reboot, it’s unclear at this time.
