The “Resident Evil” video game franchise debuted its first game way back in 1996, and since then, it’s spawned more than 20 sequels and remakes, as well as six films. But even though the series is almost 25 years old, it hasn’t even begun to run out of steam. There are currently many active “Resident Evil” projects offering enough zombie-related mayhem to keep fans happy indefinitely.
Among the current and upcoming “Resident Evil” projects, there’s “Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City,” a live-action remake of the classic 2002 film “Resident Evil,” which was directed by Paul W.S. Anderson and starred Milla Jovovich. Then there’s “Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness,” a CGI animated series from Netflix that will follow fan-favorite characters Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield. And of course, there’s the recently released video game remake, “Resident Evil Village,” which is responsible for all those memes about an ultra-tall Romanian countess.
If that wasn’t enough content, Netflix is also currently working on a live-action “Resident Evil” TV series. News of the series first surfaced back in February 2020 — via Polygon and Resident Evil Wiki on Twitter. Since then, several plot and casting details have been made available. Here’s everything we know about Netflix’s new “Resident Evil” series — the live-action one, that is.?
