Resident Evil TV show planned after The Final Chapter movie

Resident Evil

The seminal survival horror video game is to hit the small screen after the last Resident Evil film airs

Those saddened by the prospect that Resident Evil: The Final Chapter will be the last Resident Evil movie, may be pleased to hear that a TV adaptation of Capcom’s much-loved zombie game franchise is in the works

That’s according to Variety, who report that German company Constantin Film, the house that’s been producing the Resident Evil films since Milla Jovovich first took a turn as Alice in 2002, are looking to expand further into the world of TV.

The series, due to launch after the final film is released forms part of Constantin’s increased TV output, which will also include a TV serialisation of teen fantasy novels, The Mortal Instruments.

With Resident Evil: The Final Chapter currently being written, the film isn’t due to release until 2016, so there’s going to be a wait before we’ll get to see if the series is any good.

Being as it is, in the very early stages, nothing’s been said as to which characters from the Resident Evil universe are likely to feature, or if the series will follow any existing storylines.

In the game-to-film space, all too often populated by movies that have been pretty poor, Resident Evil leads the way as the highest-grossing film franchise to date making £570m ($915m) worldwide.
