After one season, Netflix’s Resident Evil series was cancelled. According to Deadline, Netflix has decided not to continue its version of the Capcom survival horror series, which debuted its first season of eight episodes on July 14.
How It Goes
The Resident Evil television series on Netflix featured a unique tale set in the Resident Evil universe. Albert Wesker and his two daughters, Jade and Billie, relocate to New Raccoon City, which has been established in a parallel reality by the Umbrella Corporation.
And How It Went
Although it premiered in the Top 10, the series swiftly disappeared from view after receiving a mixed response from reviewers and viewers. The show alternates between this New Raccoon City plot and one that takes place 14 years later, when the T-Virus obliterates the human population.
Numerous adaptations of Resident Evil have been made, including the reboot Welcome to Raccoon City and a number of commercially successful movies. Although the latter game may be the most closely related to the original in terms of adaptation, most Resident Evil adaptations have mainly used the original stories to develop new ones. The Cowboy Bebop live-action series and other adaptations were previously canceled by Netflix. This is also the service’s most recent cancellation.
