Rumour: Netflix Is Reportedly Working On A Resident Evil Television Series

Deadline indicates that the studio is now searching for a showrunner to bring the series to fruition.

Netflix is teaming up with German production company Constantin Film to develop a live-action Resident Evil TV series. Supposedly, the basic premise will remain the same with an added emphasis on exploring the Umbrella Corporation and "the new world order caused by the outbreak of the T-virus". This show is expected to stay true to its roots, with plenty of signature elements, action sequences and "easter eggs" from the game series.

While the gameplay is mostly the same between the two characters - with bigger changes in the game's "Second Run" mode that unlocks after you complete it once - there are a few differences to the game itself too.

We've heard whisperings of a reboot that'll take its cues from Resident Evil 7, the terrifying 2017 entry in the game franchise, and Variety reported in December that Constantin Film hired Johannes Roberts to direct. The movies earned over $1 billion at the box office.

The report's certainly well-timed, since the incredible remake of 1998 game Resident Evil 2 hits physical and digital shelves on Friday. Because of this, it became the most successful film franchise based on a video game property.

Playing like Resident Evil 4 through Revelations but with the tension of the original trilogy, RE2 Remake's atmosphere is everything Resident Evil 7 started to hone back in on, perfected.
