  • Numerous outlets are saying that there's a Resident Evil show coming to Netflix.

Resident Evil is an acclaimed franchise from Capcom. While Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6 failed to live up to expectations due to their action-focused approach, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard revived the franchise. The Resident Evil 2 remake was even better!

Suffice to say, Capcom is on a roll, and Netflix is also interested in the franchise. According to a report by Deadline, "Resident Evil is headed to television." The article goes on to say that the team is looking for an animator, and the series will focus on "the new world order caused by the outbreak of the T-virus."

Since then, many other outlets have also confirmed this. We'll keep you posted as soon as we know more about Netflix's plans about the series. If you can't wait for the show — and have already seen the countless films — you can play a few Resident Evil games through Xbox Game Pass.
