Resident Evil showrunner reveals plans for the future of the Netflix series

After the release of Resident Evil: Welcome to Racoon CityIt wouldn’t be surprising if the team behind the upcoming Netflix series of resident Evil were a bit nervous about the show’s release. The most recent film didn’t fare too well when it came to critical acclaim or box office, despite going back to where it all began, but it looks like series showrunner Andrew Dabb has a plan for the series, whatever the show Is accepted. Comicbook.com reported Dabb’s explanation of where the series could go in the future.

“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 I Came Out of Supernatural I was on the fourth season of Supernatural, I remember sitting in a room with Eric Kripke. On day one he said, “Look guys, season four is the final season. We’ve got syndication numbers like they’re killing us now, we were a bubble show the whole time. And then the next fifth season is like, ‘Okay, now this is really the last. I have a five year plan’ and he was right. It was the last season for him. 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 be. “

The showrunner went on to say that he already has an ending in mind for the series, but in the end it really depends on how the show performs, how much of the story he can tell or how much he needs to add. He said:

“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 think you don’t have to start this with a set ending because you have to discover ideas along the way, you have to start with an idea of where you want to go with the characters, not so much likes, you know what’s the number seven booze that’s going to be five years from now, you know what I mean? But where will these girls be? Where will Wesker be? How did these things work? And you’ll see hints of 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. And I think it kind of creates a… you came 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 resident Evil Will be a brand new version of the story

After the original film series based on the franchise ended in 2016 Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, Resident Evil: Welcome to Racoon City seemed like a chance to give fans what they wanted – a faithful adaptation of the original resident Evil games. That didn’t seem to work out as planned, however, as the film only received an approval rating of 31%. Now the Netflix series has a chance to redeem the franchise with a brand new story that doesn’t forget the games, but doesn’t try to replicate them either.

The official synopsis of the series reads: “Set in the year 2036 – 14 years after a deadly virus caused a global apocalypse, Jade Wesker struggles to survive in a world overrun by bloodthirsty infected and insane creatures. In this absolute carnage, Jade is haunted by her New Raccoon City past, her father’s chilling connections to the Umbrella Corporation, but most importantly, what happened to her sister, Billie.”
