Resident Evil CG Series Comes To Netflix In 2021
The CG series stars Leon and Claire, reunited from Resident Evil 2.
Resident Evil fans have been getting absolutely spoiled as of late, with the Resident Evil 3 remake releasing earlier this year and Resident Evil Village following in 2021. However, they're also going to get an all-new CG Netflix series next year called Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness, and it stars two of the most iconic characters in the franchise.
Announced during the Tokyo Game Show, Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness stars Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield, who were both previously in Resident Evil 2. The series seems to live up to its title based on the visuals we've seen thus far, and it looks like it could be taking a more horror-focused and less action-heavy route than some of the previous Resident Evil CG projects. This would seem fitting, as Chris and Claire starred in a game that relied much more heavily on tension and suspense than all-out chaos.

Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness isn't the only project Netflix has in the works for the franchise. It's also going to air a live-action show that stars Albert Wesker's twin daughters. Set in two different time periods, it seems like it will add more context to the Wesker family, and it's being produced by Cosntantin Film -- the same production company that handled the live-action films. Those were far removed from the games' canon, so we'll have to wait and see if the same thing happens with the series.
Three Resident Evil CG movies were produced prior to Infinite Darkness. The first two, Degeneration and Damnation, received mostly favorable reviews. The most recent, Resident Evil: Vendetta, didn't fare as well.
