Resident Evil Netflix series reportedly in the works

Capcom's survival horror franchise is getting a TV show.

Deadline reports that Netflix is developing a Resident Evil series "loosely" based on the video game, and Constantin Film will be the studio behind it.

The German production and distribution company is also responsible for the Resident Evil movies starring Milla Jovovich. 2002's Resident Evil, and 2016's Resident Evil: The Final Chapter book-end the six-film series.

Apparently the Netflix show will dig deeper into Umbrella, and the fallout of the T-virus outbreak.

If the outlet's sources are accurate, we can expect to see more action, as well as a few Easter eggs.
