Horror favourite Resident Evil is reportedly being made into a Netflix Original TV series. Resident Evil fans are already keen to find out everything associated with the potential new series, from the release date and cast to the trailer and plot. Here’s all we know so far about the Resident Evil TV series and when it will be released.
When is the Resident Evil TV series released on Netflix?
The new Resident Evil TV series is yet to be given a release date by show bosses.
Netflix has reportedly agreed to release the TV adaptation of the horror franchise online as an original series, according to Deadline.
Resident Evil will, therefore, likely have every episode of its debut season released at once for fans to stream in the UK, USA, and worldwide.
German film studio Constantin Film, the brains behind the Resident Evil movies, is believed to be the company working on the project, working alongside Netflix.
We do know Resident Evil doesn’t appear on Netflix’s full 2019 release schedule, but that could be subject to change.
