Resident Evil Netflix series description leaks Capcom

From time to time, the Netflix website has been known to spill the beans on certain projects before the streamer actually intended for the public to know. That seems to be the case here with a new Netflix-exclusive Resident Evil series listing and description that suddenly appeared on the website. It has since been removed, but the Wayback Machine, aka the “I’ve got receipts for the entire internet!” website, has captured the description for posterity.

Here is what we can apparently suspect from a new Resident Evil series: “The town of Clearfield, MD has long stood in the shadow of three seemingly unrelated behemoths – the Umbrella Corporation, the decommissioned Greenwood Asylum, and Washington, D.C. Today, twenty-six years after the discovery of the T-Virus, secrets held by the three will start to be revealed at the first signs of outbreak.”

I am not up to date on my Resident Evil lore at all, but apparently the T-Virus ravaged Raccoon City in 1998. That would mean this series is set in 2024, if it is at all canon with the video games. Beyond that, nothing concrete is known about this new series.

However, back in January 2019, Deadline reported that a Resident Evil Netflix series was in development, and that report claimed, “the series is expected to incorporate all of Resident Evil’s signature elements, including action sequences and ‘Easter eggs.'” That report was never confirmed, until seemingly now.

In other Capcom screen news, the Mega Man movie will be written by the person who wrote the scripting for the upcoming The Batman.
