Resident Evil TV series will make all games canon

That resident Evil The gaming franchise made a fairly successful transition to the big screen, at the box office, with the Milla Jovovich-led film series, albeit without critical and fan acclaim. After pretty much dropping all links to the games in all but a few character names and a very broad overview, the resident Evil Movies have their followers, but fans of the games still wanted more. Recently, Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City attempted to reboot the films and merge the storylines of the first two games into a story that was filled with Easter eggs but still divided fans. Now we’re just a month away from another new take on the franchise, but this time in a Netflix TV series that promises plenty of ties to the original games.


That resident Evil The TV series has just released a double trailer and show creator Andrew Dabb has revealed that everything that happens in the games is canon of the TV series and we will see many familiar creatures as well as some new ones in the series. The story takes place in the years 2022 and 2036 and sees Albert Wesker move to New Raccoon City with his half-twin children. With Wesker having a long history with the town, it doesn’t take long before the mysterious Umbrella Corporation unleashes dark experiments and once again things start to go really wrong.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Dabb made it clear that the resident Evil The series will feature all released games, but not in the first season. With things already moving into a second season, it’s clear that Dabb has some ambitious plans if he gets to pull them off. He said:
