Netflix to create Resident Evil TV series

There's no word on whether Milla Jovovich will return.

A Resident Evil TV series is currently in development at Netflix. 

The streaming giant are working with German production studio Constantin Film who’re behind the Milla Jovovich-starring series of films. 

Not too much information is available as the project is still in its very early stages of development but US entertainment site Deadline have confirmed it’ll “expand the universe and deepen the existing mythology.”

They also provided a brief plot summary stating the series will explore the “dark inner workings of the Umbrella Corporation and the new-world order caused by the outbreak of the lethal T-virus.”

This suggests it’ll pick up the story from 2016’s Resident Evil: The Final Chapter rather than serve as a straight adaptation of Capcom’s video-game franchise upon which the films are loosely based.

Search is underway for a showrunner and there’s been no word on an official cast or director. 

Despite the overwhelming amount of poor reviews which greeted each entry, the film series has to date earnt $1.2 billion worldwide to become the highest grossing set of video game adaptations ever.  

Other upcoming Netflix adaptations of video games include a third season of critically-acclaimed anime Castlevania and the debut of fantasy-drama The Witcher starring Man of Steel’s Henry Cavill as the titular monster slayer.
