Resident Evil showrunner reveals if they have plans for the future of the Netflix series

Netflix resident Evil series aims to make a splash when it debuts this summer. The series will be the first live-action series in franchise history. The latest live-action project, Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon CityShe was met with negative reviews and didn’t fare as well at the box office. Now the future of the franchise is in the hands of the series. As with all series, every writer has an idea for how to complete their project, and it seems showrunner Andrew Dabb is no different. While speaking to a group of journalists, we had a chance to ask Dabb if he has his resident Evil series worked out.

“Yeah, I think, you know, obviously, hopefully there’s no ‘dignity’ here. But hopefully it’s an ongoing series. I think we have a map. You must know that I came out supernatural. And when I joined supernatural Season four, I remember sitting in a room with Eric Kripke,” revealed Dabb. “On day one he said, ‘Look guys, season four is the last season. We’ve got syndication numbers now like they’re killing us, we’ve been a bubble show the whole time. And then the next season, season five, it’s like, okay, this is really the last one. I have a five-year plan,” and he was right. For him it was the last season. But then the show went on for another 10 years. So, I don’t want to sit here and say, you know what, we’ve got 96 episodes, we’re going to get where we need to go.”

Fans of the franchise should be very excited about his comments as it could mean we could see a lot more of the franchise if it does well. The showrunner went on to reveal that the Netflix series has an ending in mind, and how they reach that ending will depend on how well it performs on the streaming service. He also teased where the storyline is from resident Evil could go.

“The truth is that we have an end. And we can work towards that end quickly or slowly. The longer we’re on the air the more fun things we can do and the more things we can do. But yeah I guess you don’t have to start this with a set ending in stone because you have to discover ideas along the way. But with an idea of ​​where you’re going with the characters,” Dabb continued. “Not so much with how, you know, what’s going to be the number seven booze five years from now, you know what I mean? But where are those going to be girl? Where will wesker be? How did these things work? And you’ll see references to that, especially in the future storyline with little hints of things that will happen in the a storyline that kind of lead into the z storyline , which is the future storyline of a…you come out of the first season with questions like, “Oh, but if they said that, but how do they get from there to there?” Well, hopefully that will be answered.”

Netflix describes the series as follows: “Year 2036 – 14 years after a deadly virus caused a global apocalypse, Jade Wesker fights for survival in a world overrun by bloodthirsty infected and insane creatures. In this absolute carnage, Jade is haunted by her New Raccoon City past, from her father’s chilling connections to the Umbrella Corporation, but most importantly, what happened to her sister, Billie.”
