Netflix Just Revealed The First Official Details Of The New Resident Evil Series

I am pretty sure I can hear my husband crying tears of joy right now…

You see, Netflix has just revealed the first official details of the new Resident Evil Series and Resident Evil just so happens to be one of my husband’s favorite franchises.

Now, with the resources Netflix has and the fact this will be a Netflix Original, I have hope they are going to do this series right. I mean, have you seen The Witcher?

With that being said, Netflix has just released some details surrounding the Resident Evil series by posting on Twitter to say:

Now if you look at the image above, it actually says “Based on the Capcom Video Game”. Let’s hope they stick to that fairly close because it would be amazing to see a really good series based off the games.

I am sorry but those Resident Evil movies released years ago were awful and did not do the video games justice. Again, I have hope this series will (or Netflix will have a ton of upset fans).

Netflix then went onto to give a little more details:

Ahhh so we will get 8 episodes each lasting 1 hour each! Heck yes!

In a press release, Netflix also released the plot details:

“In the first timeline, fourteen-year-old sisters Jade and Billie Wesker are moved to New Raccoon City. A manufactured, corporate town, forced on them right as adolescence is in full swing. But the more time they spend there, the more they come to realize that the town is more than it seems and their father may be concealing dark secrets. Secrets that could destroy the world.

“Cut to the second timeline, well over a decade into the future: there are less than fifteen million people left on Earth. And more than six billion monsters — people and animals infected with the T-virus. Jade, now thirty, struggles to survive in this New World, while the secrets from her past – about her sister, her father and herself – continue to haunt her.”

After people read that, they weren’t exactly excited…

Again, as of right now, that is all we know. We don’t know the release date but are hoping for sometime next year.

So, what do you think? Will Netflix give this franchise the spotlight it deserves or totally blow the opportunity? I sure hope it ends up being as awesome as The Witcher because that was amazing!
