According to Deadline’s Nellie Andreeva, Netflix is developing a scripted series based on the hit action horror franchise.

The show will be a Netflix global original and will be handled by the same company, Constantin Film, who created the Resident Evil movies.

Deadline have suggested the news series will keep the basic premise of the story but expand the Resident Evil universe and deepen the existing mythology.

The entertainment website revealed that although the project is in early stages, the series is expected to incorporate all classic elements of the franchise.
