Resident Evil, the quintessential horror thriller from Capcom is finally coming to Netflix. The TV show version was confirmed by Netflix itself after leaking the plot on its website.
Yes, indeed. The show is definitely on and will begin production soon. Expect it to arrive early 2021.
The show is rumoured to be based on Umbrella Corp. and it’s inner workings. As of now, we do not know too much about the plot. But Netflix let loose some information in a leak on their website. Here it is;
“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.”
Very intriguing indeed. Netflix took the leak down quite quickly. Yet, it all but confirms the production and the setting.RESIDENT EVIL: THE FINAL CHAPTER, l-r: Ali Larter, Milla Jovovich, Ruby Rose, 2016. ph: Ilze Kitshoff/©Screen Gems/courtesy Everett Collection
What Are The Deets?
For starters, there won’t be an Alice. There is a ton of content to work with and the Alice narrative just doesn’t seem to make sense here. So Milla Jovovich is unlikely to return. We do think we’ll see some of the recurring video game characters as Capcom seeks to expand on its franchise.
Beyond this, details are thin as of now. We expect to see a lot of thrilling action, gruesome zombie dudes and some “Easter eggs” to boot.
All in all, we’re extremely glad to see the franchise expand and delve deeper into the T-Virus disaster. It is going to be an exciting watch!
We will, of course, keep this page updated about the latest goings-on at the Umbrella Corp. Facility. Till then, we sign off from Raccoon City, Home of the Horrific Disaster of Yore. Stay connected for more updates.
