Is the action horror show already dead upon it's arrival or is there a possibility of a season 2?
Not every successful video game franchise can be turned into a successful live-action show and the 2022 Resident Evil television series is a prime example of this case. Audiences might have been familiar with the Milla Jovovich-led Resident Evil films which had a few successful installments in the past but the plan to recreate the tension and horror in a Netflix series backfired horribly. Set in New Raccoon City, which was the epicenter of the notorious T-Virus outbreak, Resident Evil did not impress the critics or the audience. So let's find out about the future of a potential Resident Evil Season 2 up ahead.
Unfortunately, there will be no season 2 of Resident Evil since it was canceled on August 2022 after one season consisting of eight episodes. The reason behind the abrupt cancellation is obvious since it failed to impress the critics or fans, and currently holds a 26% audience score and 54% critics rating on Rotten Tomatoes, which is considered poor. So, it’s highly unlikely that this show will return for a second season in the future.
Considering there will be no season 2, we don't have any information regarding its plot details either. The first season narrated the story of teenage twins Billie and Jade, the children of Dr. Albert Wesker, in New Raccoon City, which is under the control of the infamous Umbrella Corporation. Soon the twins discover the dark truths behind the corporation's facade and witness the subsequent outbreak of a retroviral bioweapon called T-Virus, which managed to reduce the human population to only 300 million in a span of 14 years. But now Umbrella corporation is hunting down Jade for some reason, and it's going to be survival of the fittest among billions of infected cannibalistic humans all around.
The first season’s cast consisted of Ella Balinska as Jade and Adeline Rudolph as Billie. Lance Reddick plays their father, Dr. Albert Wesker, and Paola Núñez is Evelyn Marcus. The show was developed by Andrew Dabb and is available for streaming on Netflix.
There is no trailer for season 2, but here is the trailer for season one.
