With the recent release of the Resident Evil 2 Remake, fans are sleeping with the lights on. The remake has seen a resurgence in the beloved horror game franchise. Now, a big-time streaming service is getting in on the action.

Streaming The Evil

Netflix revealed plans to produced a TV series based on the hit video game. There’s no word on who will direct or star in this series. Constantin Film, who is behind the Resident Evil film series, is working on this project.

This is the second Netflix original series based on a video game franchise. In 2017, they unveiled the Castlevania anime, which received rave reviews from fans and critics. The third season of that show is slated to be released in the near future.

A Box Office Monster

The aforementioned Resident Evil film franchise made a whopping $1.2 worldwide. 2017 saw the conclusion of the whole story with Resident Evil: The Final Chapter. The film became the highest grossing in the franchise at $312 million worldwide.

“I’d play those games with my little brother for six hours a day. I thought it was the coolest, darkest, most underground thing ever– a female character-driven video game with zombies. We found an audience with the film but never thought it would be this long journey,” Milla Jovovich told The Independent.

Back To Square One

Aside from the TV shows, a reboot of the film franchise has also been in the works. This was revealed shortly after the release of The Final Chapter. James Wan was originally attached to it, but he dropped off the project. Johannes Roberts, who directed The Strangers: Prey at Night, will write and direct this movie. There’s no word yet if they’re recasting roles or bringing in other characters from the franchise. Sherry Birkin, who’s been a part of the franchise since Resident Evil 2, would be a great protagonist.

With so much Resident Evil madness happening, fans can’t wait to see their favorites protect Raccoon City again.

When Real-Life Plays A Part In TV Plotlines

Not every show has its plot lined out from the moment the pilot airs, and still, sometimes real-life can get in the way. Even the best laid plans can go awry, and sometimes plotlines are created entirely to accommodate an actor’s unexpected personal issue. From pregnancies to off-set injuries (and of course plenty of on-set injuries), writers are reworking scripts so that you’d never know something else was happening behind the scenes. Think you know why an actor exited a show? We’ll bet you didn’t even realize that some major show plots happened out of serendipity. Read on to find out how in some cases, the truth really is stranger than fiction.
