First introduced way back in 1996, the Resident Evil franchise is still going strong with about a bazillion games, live-action and CG films, manga and more. Now it’s being turned into a CG anime TV series called Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness.
Produced by studios TMS Entertainment and Quebico, the series will star Resident Evil 2 protagonists Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield. It’ll stream on Netflix in 2021.
That’s the same Netflix that’s also producing a live-action Resident Evil series, proving there’s no end to the enthusiasm for tales of zombie survival.
Quebico, which is handling the CG for the series, was founded by Kei Miyamoto, the co-producer of CG film Resident Evil: Vendetta, established in 2017.
Here’s hoping Infinite Darkness is stronger than this stinker from 2012.
