Netflix Picks Up Resident Evil For Series

Resident Evil is all the rage at the minute, with Capcom giving everyone want they’ve been asking for for years, a grounded reboot with actual zombies.  And now Netflix is going to produce a TV series.

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 Films, the production company behind the movies, is behind this one.  So it’s not clear what we’re going to be looking at here; slapstick-tier stuff or something akin to the games’ roots.  They’re also producing a movie reboot, which is said to be close to the ‘28 Days‘ series and more realistic.

So maybe the new show will be too.
