The Resident Evil TV series on Netflix is based on one of the best survival horror video game franchises, developed by Capcom. The program is more than just a fan-made spinoff; it’s officially canon to the games.
The Wesker family is the focus of Resident Evil: Netflix’s two-part series. It begins with Albert Wesker’s twin daughters, Jade and Billie, who are shocked to hear their father’s new work at the Umbrella Corporation is fraught with danger. In 2036, the dystopian world has been devastated by the T-Virus, an illness that turns humans into zombies, and Jade is on the run from Umbrella. Eep! When will the second season of Resident Evil be available to watch following the first one has concluded? Is Netflix considering a renewal at this time?
Resident Evil Season 2 Renewal Status
After only one season, Netflix has decided to end the Resident Evil TV series. This year’s Resident Evil was the most current film to be based on the popular Capcom video game franchise of the same name. The franchise has had multiple films made, but the TV show is unlike the movies because it takes place in an alternate timeline from the movies and video games. However, several of the game’s characters and storylines were adapted for the TV show.
Deadline reports that sadly but perhaps predictably, Netflix has decided to end Resident Evil after its first season. Dabb had previously mentioned story ideas that would extend Resident Evil to a third and fourth season, but those plans have since been scrapped. Since the show dropped out of Netflix’s top 10 after only three weeks, the decision makes logical.
Resident Evil Season 2 Release Date
The eight-episode first season of Resident Evil was canceled in August 2022, therefore there won’t be a second season. The show’s quick cancellation is understandable, given it failed to win over either critics or viewers, earning a dismal 26% audience score and 54% critics score on review aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes. Therefore, a second season of this show is extremely doubtful.
Resident Evil Storyline
Both the 2022 and 2036 versions of events occurred in the first season of Resident Evil. Season 2 of Resident Evil might have maintained this plot concept by showcasing humanity’s early collapse due to the T-Virus and its subsequent recovery.
The Wesker family probably would have remained the main characters. Resident Evil follows the plight of Jade and Billie Wesker, two survivors from the year 2030 who are being pursued by the evil Umbrella Corporation. In 2022, their father, Albert, takes on a more significant role as he attempts to contain the T-Virus pandemic. The strange mutations that have occurred throughout the years and the mysteries of the Umbrella would be investigated further. The future will tell what other horrors await Raccoon City, but it’s safe to say that zombies aren’t its only problem.

Resident Evil Season 2 Plotline
Based on their father’s most up-to-date intel, Billie and Jade Wesker, protagonists of the upcoming season of Resident Evil, will go to Japan in 2022 to find an old acquaintance named Ada Wong. They and Bert, who has taken on the role of de facto father figure, may seek temporary safety there as they investigate their gloomy family history.
The season finale saw a bio-organic weapon known as the Tyrant emerges from the ruins of Umbrella’s destroyed facility, portending a similarly dismal future for New Raccoon City as the original. Soon, it will likely wreak havoc on locals, possibly triggering a new T-virus outbreak and setting the stage for humanity’s near extinction in 2036. Future events are quite active as well; Billie has recently kidnapped Jade’s daughter Bea in order to discover why a mutant monster avoided harming her. Bea’s aunt has made it very apparent that she will go to any lengths to learn the secret of her niece’s genes, putting the young girl in great danger as we go into season 2.

Resident Evil Season 1 Review
The narrative is separated into a “Before” section set in 2022 and an “After” section set in 2036. In all stories, Jade Wesker, daughter of Albert Wesker, is the protagonist, and the world has been devastated by an apocalyptic event. In 2036, Jade travels to the south coast of England, the north of France, and finally back to her family as events build to a dramatic climax as she searches for a cure to the “Zero” plague (yep, another zombie show that declines to call its undead inhabitants zombies).
But the story really begins in 2022, when Jade and her sister Billie come to New Raccoon City with their father, Albert Wesker. Jade makes a remark about how white their South African area is. Everything from the white skin of its residents to the whiteness of their homes, picket fences, and interiors.
The majority of the characters lack depth and are poorly written, and the plot relies heavily on convenient plot devices like deus ex machina and other artificial devices to get the protagonists out of tight spots. The splicing together of these segments is at least partially to a fault. There is a fundamental incompatibility between the two timelines. Neither plot thread is compelling, and it all seems to beg for a second season.
