Netflix Plans A “Resident Evil” TV Series

A TV series adaptation of the Capcom video game series “Resident Evil” is in the works at Netflix. Constantin Film, who produced the film series, is behind this TV series which is currently seeking a showrunner.

The series will be a Netflix global original and will keep the basic premise as it explores the dark inner workings of the Umbrella Corporation and the new world order caused by the outbreak of the T-virus. Six films were ultimately made in the franchise and collectively earned $1.2 billion worldwide.

Constantin is also planning a more horror-oriented cinematic reboot of the property and filmmaker Johannes Roberts came onboard that project last month. The tone of the TV series at this time is unknown.
