Resident Evil, the Capcom game, has made a name for itself ever since it was launched in 1996. Over 30 years, it has managed to spawn several video games sequel novels and add to the list ifs the numerous movie franchises it boasts of. After years of speculating, if there would be an adaptation of the capcom into a live-action series, Netflix is here to fulfil yet another dream come true. The upcoming series” Resident Evil” left fans in the dark after its announcement in 2019, as it only posted an update in August 2021, a month after the animated series Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness was released. Season one is yet to be released, and so far, there are rumors that the showrunners already have a possible plot for the second season. How much better can it get?
Why was Resident Evil Season 2 Canceled?
The live-action “Resident Evil” series on Netflix was released more than one month ago, but the streaming provider has decided against a second season.
Resident Evil, a Netflix action-horror series based primarily on the well-known game series, has not been selected for a second season.
The low ratings and viewership led the streaming channel to opt against continuing the show. Like the several other Resident Evil adaptations, the Netflix live-action series aims to give another video game series its predicted yet another twist.
Resident Evil Season 1 Release Date: When will it air?
Official production of the series was to commence in April 2020 and then conclude in October, but the pandemic had other plans, and the production had to be delayed. The next plan was to start filming on February 14th, 2021, but this also didn’t work out, and filming had to be pushed to September. Now that the series is in its post-production stages, it wouldn’t be too long before we see the series premiere, and if all goes as expected, we expect the eight episodes series to be out by 2022.
Luckily, on July 14, 2022, Resident Evil will be made available only through Netflix.
Resident Evil Season 1 Plot: What will Happen?
