Netflix is currently developing a Resident Evil TV series, according to a Deadline report. There has been no confirmed announcement for the series though, or any indication as to when it might premiere.

According to the report, Constantin Film, the same studio behind the Resident Evil movies, is at the helm for this new series. However, a showrunner has not been selected yet. Details are seemingly still rather vague, with the show supposedly being made to further expand upon the games' lore and deepen the mythology of the expanded Resident Evil universe. It seems, much like the movies, this series is only using the Resident Evil games as a loose template, although signature elements and Easter eggs will be included to tie back to the source material.

On the game side of things, Resident Evil 2 has gotten a remake that comes out tomorrow. In our Resident Evil 2 review, Alessandro Fillari gave the remake a 9/10, writing, "Resident Evil 2 is not only a stellar remake of the original, but it's also simply a strong horror game that delivers anxiety-inducing and grotesque situations, topping some of the series' finest entries. But above all, the remake is an impressive game for the fact that it goes all-in on the pure survival horror experience, confidently embracing its horrifying tone and rarely letting up until the story's conclusion. Though Resident Evil 2 has its roots firmly in the past, it reworks the familiar horrors into something that feels brand new and all its own."

Free DLC has already been confirmed for the remake, as has the return of the fan-favorite 4th Survivor and Tofu Modes from the original Resident Evil 2.

Resident Evil 2 is coming to Xbox One, PS4, and PC on January 25.
