Now that the longstanding film franchise has come to a conclusion, the Resident Evil series is getting a new adaptation.
Fans of the video games developed by Capcom have long been waiting for a film or series that stayed true to the source material. The animated films did justice to beloved characters but didn’t touch on the storylines within the games. Meanwhile, the six live-action films hinted toward characters and storylines from the source material, but many fans were disappointed by the final product.
With the announcement from Netflix that a Resident Evil series is in the works, fans again have hope of seeing justice done to the franchise that birthed the zombie craze. According to Deadline, the studio behind the upcoming series is none other than Constantin Film, the same production company that made the live-action movies.
So far, there is no word on who the showrunner will be and very little on how exactly the reboot will approach the series. Deadline reports that it will aim to “expand the Resident Evil universe and deepen the exiting [sic] mythology.” Hopefully, the Netflix series will faithfully consider Resident Evil‘s roots.
Despite complaints by hardcore fans, the film franchise was massively popular, so Netflix is hedging a safe bet on one of the most successful series in gaming.
