Netflix confirms there is an official Resident Evil series in the works. The first season will consist of eight 1-hour episodes. The minimal plot details provided so far allude to the possible origin story of Albert Wesker's involvement in Racoon City.
“When the Wesker kids move to New Raccoon City, the secrets they uncover might just be the end of everything. Resident Evil, a new live action series based on Capcom’s legendary survival horror franchise, is coming to Netflix.”
Are these "kids" Wesker's children? We'll have to see. Albert Wesker was introduced in the original Resident Evil video game in 1996 as the head of STARS - a national police force. The character was also portrayed in a number of the popular movies starring Milla Jovovich.
If you're questioning the creative effort of this show, the first episode was written by Andew Dabb who is a primary writer and producer of the long-running show Supernatural. Bronwen Hughes will be directing, who previously directed episodes of The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul.
There is no known air date for the show at this time.
