With Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness, Capcom has announced another Netflix series on the horror series, which should start in 2021. The focus of the story is on Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield, who this time are not played by real actors, but can be seen with their well-known CGI models from the video games. At the same time, Netflix and Capcom are also working on a series with real actors.
Capcom officials have announced a new Netflix series that will take place in the world of Resident Evil. The show will be shown on the streaming platform as early as next year. Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness will not rely on real actors, but on CGI models that we already know from the many games in the series. And the protagonists should also be more than known.
The story of Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness will revolve around Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield, who appeared in Resident Evil 2, among others. Many details about the series are not yet known. Netflix and Capcom have already released a first trailer for Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness.
The first reactions to the trailer are already positive. Accordingly, fans are happy that they opted for the well-known models from the games and did not look for actors for a live-action project again. However, Infinite Darkness won't be the only series that Netflix is producing in cooperation with Capcom. The first season of Resident Evil was confirmed back in August, with the sisters Jade and Billie Wesker in the focus. These are probably the daughters of antagonist Albert Wesker. But there is no start date yet. Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness has also only been announced as the starting year in 2021.
