Resident Evil Infinite Darkness Director Has Hopes For Second Season

The director of the Netflix animated series, Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness, Eiichiro Hasumi, hopes for a second season.

Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness recently launched as a mini-series on Netflix. This series was very much in the same mold as the 2017 CG movie, Resident Evil: Vendetta. To be honest, Infinite Darkness felt very much like a CG movie split into four parts.

Infinite Darkness had a mixed reception

It’s fair to say that season one wasn’t perhaps as well received by fans as some may have hoped. Without giving away spoilers, the plot played it very safe, and it seems that much of the Resident Evil community was not happy with how the relationship between Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield was handled.

On IMDB, Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness has a rating of 5.8, while Rotten Tomatoes has an Average Audience Score of 42%. However, despite the lukewarm reception, the director still has hopes for a second season on Netflix.

Will season two happen?

During an interview with, when asked about the prospect of Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness receiving a season two, Hasumi replied:

I feel like if a lot of people watch Infinite Darkness and ask for a continuation, I think that would be a possibility. And I would love that, for that to happen.

In my opinion, was Infinite Darkness great? Certainly not. But would I like to see a second season? Yes, absolutely. The final episode of season one finished on a cliff-hanger and for better or worse, I feel that story needs to be continued.
