I am super excited to see this upcoming Netflix Resident Evil TV show, and it sounds like it might be pretty good.
Netflix seems to be the front-runners in adapting video game properties for its streaming service.
They’ve been very successful with The Witcher Season 1 last year, and they also made the Castlevania TV show which I think is brilliant.
Now they’ve set their sights on Resident Evil and I’m hoping they’re going to be adapting the games and not the movies for their upcoming series.
It’s now been revealed thanks to Redanian Intelligence that the first season of Resident Evil is going to be eight episodes long.
This is how long the first season of The Witcher was, and it seems to be a good length for a Netflix show.
They also revealed that each episode is going to be an hour-long, which is also the perfect length.
That means we’re going to get eight hours of live-action goodness on Netflix.
A Resident Evil series is coming to Netflix
I for one cannot wait to see what Netflix does with this show.
The outlet also said that the show is going to go into production in June of this year and will shoot mostly in South Africa.
According to Deadline, the upcoming TV show will “explore the dark inner workings of the Umbrella Corporation and the new world order caused by the outbreak of the T-virus”.
I really do hope they opt to take more inspiration from the video game rather than the movies.
The last few games in the Resident Evil franchise have been really impressive.
Resident Evil Biohazard was great and I loved the Resident Evil 2 remake.
They’re also in the process of making a Resident Evil 3 remake which I can’t wait to get my hands on.
