Netflix announced this year that it was developing a Resident Evil animated series. Now CAPCOM has revealed the series title and teaser visual. The company announced during its Tokyo Game Show Online 2020 live stream that the series will be titled Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness. It will be a CG mini-series.
Constantin Film is producing the show with The Walking Dead’s Bronwen Hughes as director. Supernatural writer Andrew Dabb is penning the scripts.
The Netflix series will tell its new story across two timelines. In the first, 14-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. The second, more than a decade into the future sees less than 15 million people left on Earth. And more than 6 billion monsters — people and animals infected with the T-virus. Jade, now 30, struggles to survive in this new world, while the secrets from her past — about her sister, her father and herself — continue to haunt her.
Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness will start streaming on Netflix in 2021.
