Netflix Drops ‘Resident Evil’ After Just One Season

by Thomas Tuna

It’s one and done for Resident Evil.

Netflix this week said it will not bring back Resident Evil–the small-screen adaptation of the popular video game franchise–for a second season, according to a report on Deadline.

The short-lived series–from showrunner Andrew Dabb–posted a not-impressive 55 percent score from Rotten Tomatoes and an even-worse 27 percent approval from audiences. Those numbers often spell doom for a series.

Resident Evil is set in the year 2036, some 14 years after a deadly virus caused a global apocalypse. In this scenario, Jade Wesker (Ella Balinska) “fights for survival in a world overrun by bloodthirsty and infected creatures,” according to the synopsis.

On top of these miseries, Jade “is haunted by her past in New Raccoon City, by her father’s chilling connections to the Umbrella Corporation and by what happened to her sister Billie.”

Balinska is joined in the cast by Lance Reddick, Tamara Smart, Siena Agudong, Adeline Rudolph, Paola Nunez, Ahad Raza Mir, Connor Gosatti and Turlough Convery.

Dabb–who wrote the show with Mary Leah Sutton–also served as executive producer, alongside Robert Kulzer and Oliver Berben.
