It was revealed a while back that Netflix was making a Resident Evil series.
This was massive news for me and many other fans of the series the world over.
The movies have been pretty awful for a while now.
However, the video games have been brilliant.
Resident Evil Biohazard was incredible and I really loved the Resident Evil 2 remake on PS4.
So, there’s definitely a lot of scope there to make a really good series.
It would be perfect if they opted to adapt the video games into a series as opposed to the films.
There’s so much more story in the video games that would make for a great TV show.
Anyway, it’s been revealed Redaniani Intelligence revealed that the new Netflix show is beginning shooting in June.
The Resident Evil series on Netflix is ready to go
They also revealed that the series will be eight episodes long.
This is the perfect length for a Resident Evil TV show.
The show that this could take a lot of heart from is The Witcher.
The Witcher also has video game DNA and the people behind Resident Evil could learn a lot from that show’s success.
The episodes will be one-hour long each, and it’s also been revealed that the brunt of shooting is going to taking place in South Africa.
According to Deadline, who first broke the news that Netflix was making a Resident Evil series, the 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 love the sound of this new show and I’m so glad to see video game properties be adapted properly for the screen.
