The @NXOnNetflix account tweeted: “When the Wesker kids move to New Raccoon City, the secrets they uncover might just be the end of everything.
“Resident Evil, a new live action series based on Capcom’s legendary survival horror franchise, is coming to Netflix.”
For those who don’t know, the Wesker kids referred to are the daughters of the main villain from the first five video games.
He’s known as Albert Wesker.

Netflix added: “The 8 x 1 hour episode season will be helmed by Andrew Dabb (Supernatural), Bronwen Hughes (The Walking Dead, The Journey Is the Destination) will direct the first two episodes.”
The first episode will be called “Welcome to Raccoon City”.
According to Deadline, the series will feature two timelines.
The first timeline will reportedly focus on the two fourteen year Wesker sisters who move into a “manufactured, corporate town.”
This is where they learn a potentially world destroying secret.
The second timeline will apparently feature a virus stricken world with a dwindling human population, where the sisters are separated.
With Resident Evil fans already tweeting excitedly, it is possible that the series could become as popular as Stranger Things.
We don’t have a date for when the series will air but seeing as the first episode is written, we can hope they’ll start filming soon.
