Who Is Being Cast?

While the cast members have not been confirmed, Constantin Films, the studio that has produced The Fantastic Four Franchise, has a large number of options to choose from. The cast will depend on the timeline and setting of the show. It seems unlikely, however, that Milia Jovovich will reprise her role as Alice.

What Do We Know About The Plot?

The plot description leaked on Netflix(and since deleted) said

“The town of Clearfield, MD has long stood in the shadow of three seemingly unrelated behemoths – the Umbrella Corporation, the decommissioned Greenwood Asylum, and Washington, D.C. Today, twenty-six years after the discovery of the T-Virus, secrets held by the three will start to be revealed at the first signs of an outbreak.”

The new series is likely to be live-action as the studio has previously only handled live-action adaptations.
