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.

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.

Screen Gems

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.

Beverly Hills, 90210: Was Luke Perry Team Dylan or Team Brandon?

Some television shows come into our lives at the exact right moment, so that they become inextricably bound with our memories of those complicated coming-of-age years, Beverly Hills 90210 is without a doubt one of those shows. We all tuned in week after week, year after year because the drama was just so addicting. The love triangles! The will-they-won’t-theys! Meanwhile, when the cameras weren’t rolling, the cast was up to plenty of off-set antics of their own. Disclaimer: after you read about what went down, it might have you rethinking everything — were those angsty expressions just good acting, or were they bringing some real-life drama into it?
