Netflix is developing a scripted series based on the hit action horror franchise. I hear the series will be a Netflix global original. German production and distribution company Constantin Film, which is behind the Resident Evil movies loosely based on the Capcom video game series, is the studio. Search is underway for a showrunner to shepherd the adaptation.

If you’re wondering if this new series will be tied to the proposed reboot, the answer is: Yes!

No one is commenting but I hear the plan is for the series to expand the Resident Evil universe and deepen the exiting mythology. I hear the series will keep the basic premise, which also served as a setup for the movie franchise.

Obviously, there’s a lot to digest here, so we’ll be bringing you all pertinent details as they emerge. Stay tuned!
