Supernatural is wrapping up its final season on the CW and it looks like one of its showrunners is staying in the world of the unknown for a new series.
According to multiple reports, Supernatural co-showrunner Andrew Dabb will be bringing a Resident Evil series to Netflix. A series which has already gotten an eight episode commitment from the streaming service. Dabb will serve as writer and showrunner and will executive produce alongside Constantin Film ‘s Robert Kulzer and Oliver Berben and Marry Leah Sutton.
According to The Hollywood Reporter; “The Netflix series will tell its new story across two timelines. In the first, 14-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, more than a decade into the future sees less than 15 million people left on Earth. And more than 6 billion monsters — people and animals infected with the T-virus. Jade, now 30, struggles to survive in this new world, while the secrets from her past — about her sister, her father and herself — continue to haunt her.”
The Resident Evil series was launched by Capcom in 1996 and went on to become a worldwide phenomenon. The video game series went on to spawn a successful film series with its last entry coming out in 2016.
