Resident Evil Netflix Adaptation Synopsis:

Resident Evil

The town of Clearfield, MD has long stood in the shadow of three seemingly unrelated behemoths – the Umbrella Corporation, the decommissioned Greenwood Asylum, and Washington, D.C. Today, twenty-six years after the discovery of the T-Virus, secrets held by the three will start to be revealed at the first signs of outbreak.

While the synopsis alone is still rather vague, like for other shows on Netflix, some key details do give us an idea of what we can expect. For starters, the setting of Clearfield, MD could eliminate the likelihood of us seeing Raccoon City or the Spencer Mansion. It also seems to indicate that this would be an all-new, original story set in the same universe as opposed to a direct adaptation from any of the games. As to whether this would be a good thing or bad, that will be for you to decide.

For now, we know that the Resident Evil Netflix adaptation will be shot in South Africa, and that the first season will have at least eight episodes, similar to the adaptation of The Witcher. Apart from that, we’re still left out in the dark on details. However, we do expect to hear more about this in the coming months so stay tuned to for further details.

Pokdepinion: Honestly, going for an original storyline would be safer compared to an adaptation. Even the most minuscule of changes could get heavy criticism from gamers. I’m just hoping it will be better than the movies.
