Netflix has ordered eight hour-long episodes of a new live-action TV series based on the Capcom’s popular Resident Evil series of video games that will be produced by Constantin Film, the same company that made the previous six Resident Evil films starring Milla Jovovich.

As per Netflix, the Resident Evil series will operate on two timelines. “In the first timeline, fourteen-year-old sisters Jade and Billie Wesker are moved to New Raccoon City. A manufactured, corporate town, forced on them right as adolescence is in full swing. But the more time they spend there, the more they come to realize that the town is more than it seems and their father may be concealing dark secrets. Secrets that could destroy the world.”

The second timeline will jump 16 years into the future, with the Earth devastated by Resident Evil’s signature zombie-making T-virus, and focus on Jade (and the less than 15 million human survivors) trying to survive in a world overrun by six billion mutated monsters.

Showrunner Andrew Dabb, who previously worked on Supernatural, said: “I’m incredibly excited to tell a new chapter in this amazing story and bring the first ever Resident Evil series to Netflix members around the world. For every type of Resident Evil fan, including those joining us for the first time, the series will be complete with a lot of old friends, and some things (bloodthirsty, insane things) people have never seen before.”

Capcom debuted Resident Evil on PlayStation in 1996, and it’s since sold more than 100 million games worldwide. The title has been adapted into six movies and theme park attractions. With a box office total of $1.2 billion, Resident Evil is the most successful movie franchise based on a video game.
