Netflix has cancelled its live-action Resident Evil series after just one season, Deadline reports.
The series, which debuted in July, is set in 2036, 14 years after a deadly virus caused a global apocalypse, and follows Jade Wesker as she fights for survival in a world overrun by infected and insane creatures. In this absolute carnage, Jade is haunted by her past in New Raccoon City, by her father’s chilling connections to the Umbrella Corporation, but mostly by what happened to her sister, Billie.
Ella Balinska, Lance Reddick, Tamara Smart, Siena Agudong, Adeline Rudolph, Paola Nuñez, Ahad Raza Mir, Connor Gosatti, and Turlough Convery starred in the eight-episode first season, which was written and executive produced by Mary Leah Sutton. Andrew Dabb served as showrunner.
The Resident Evil series was intended to branch out and explore various elements of the games, including, potentially, Resident Evil Village. The first and only season is available to watch on Netflix.
