It’s been confirmed that another Resident Evil series is coming to Netflix. The news was announced during Capcom’s time at Tokyo Game Show 2020, where Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness was unveiled to the world.
Shown off with a short teaser trailer, the series looks like it’ll star S.T.A.R.S heroes Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield. Infinite Darkness will be an episodic series, with CG characters similar to the Resident Evil CG movies (which are actually really good.)
Playing it safe, the teaser trailer’s official description doesn’t give too much away, though it appears the series will have a focus on sci-fi.
“Based on the Capcom video game franchise, Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness is a horror series with a sci-fi twist. Coming 2021 only on Netflix,” says the video description. Check out the teaser below.
This is the second confirmed Resident Evil series coming to the streaming platform, with a controversial live-action series having been announced earlier this year.
The live-action show will be eight episodes long, and will focus on the Wesker kids. Yeah…Wesker kids.
Netflix says: “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.”
Sharing a snap of the script to social media, the image also revealed that the pilot episode will be written by Andrew Dabb, whose previous work includes the demon-hunting hit show, Supernatural.
Netflix added in a follow-up tweet: “The 8 x 1 hour episode season will be helmed by Andrew Dabb (Supernatural), Bronwen Hughes (The Walking Dead, The Journey Is the Destination) will direct the first two episodes.”
Personally I’m more excited for the CG show, Infinite Darkness, than the live-action one…!
