Resident Evil, known in Japan as Biohazard,[a] is a Japanese horror video game series and media franchise created by Capcom. It consists of survival horror, third-person shooter, and first-person shooter games. The franchise has expanded into a live-action film series, animated films, television series, comic books, novels, audio dramas, and other media and merchandise.

In 2021, a reboot film was made, titled Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City.

Despite all the installments receiving generally negative reviews from critics, the Resident Evil film series has grossed over $1.2 billion. At various points throughout the 2010s, the series was the highest-grossing film series based on a video game, the highest-grossing zombie film series, and the highest-grossing horror film series although it has since been surpassed in all of these categories.The series does hold the record for the most live-action film adaptations of a video game.

Constantin Film was in development of a Resident Evil animated series in 2005, intended as a spin-off of Resident Evil: Apocalypse which would continue Alice and Jill’s adventures in the event Sony turned down work on a third film. When Resident Evil: Extinction was greenlit, this project was abandoned. A second attempt at a TV series arose in 2014; owing to a deterioration in Constantin’s relationship with Sony Pictures over the cancellation of Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes and Sony Pictures Television’s disinterest in the Shadowhunters series, Constantin began shopping around for alternate financiers with the intention it begin production following the release eof Resident Evil: The Final Chapter.

Work renewed on the television show project in late 2018 following the cancellation of Shadowhunters, with Constantin approaching Netflix to finance the film, with production outsourced to Moonlighting Film, their South Africa partner on The Final Chapter. The series was formally announced in 2020, having been greenlit as an eight episode series with each episode one hour in length. Andrew Dabb was hired as Showrunner alongside a number of other Netflix projects. Due to delays brought on by the Coronavirus pandemic, production was delayed eight months and took place from February-July 2021.

The story makes heavy use of flashbacks, set in both 2022 and 2036. The 2022 plotline involve 14-year-old half-twins Jade and Billie Wesker moving to New Raccoon City. They come to realize that their father may be concealing dark secrets, both that could destroy the world and reveal their true origins. The 2036 plotline takes place in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, where Umbrella’s T-virus has spread across the world, mutating wildlife and six billion human victims, called “Zeroes”, leaving behind a mere 15 million uninfected refugees. It follows Jade, now thirty, in her efforts to survive in this world. The series is scheduled to premiere on July 14, 2022.

A CG anime series, subtitled Infinite Darkness, starring Resident Evil 2 protagonists Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield, was released on July 8, 2021 on Netflix.
