Netflix Cancels Resident Evil Season 2

Netflix has decided not to renew the sequel to Capcom’s survival horror series Resident Evil.

The program, which had its first season on July 14, was originally aired on the 14th of last month. The season included eight action-thriller episodes.

Although the series started off great, taking second place in its debut week. However, the show quickly fell off Netflix’s top 10 ranking radar in the coming weeks.

Netflix’s Resident Evil has been lukewarm to viewers and critics alike. Rotten Tomatoes gave the show a 55% approval rating.

A consensus statement from critics on the site states that “Although Resident Evil is closer than previous adaptations to honor the maze knowledge of the beloved video game, this zombie series can still use more brains.”

The series takes place in the year 2036, 14 years after a particularly deadly virus struck the planet, resulting in a global apocalypse.

It centers on Jade Wesker, who fights for survival in a bloodthirsty, infested place.

But Jade is obsessed with the past when she and her sister Billie Wesker moved to New Raccoon City with father Albert Wesker.

The story alternates between two timelines in the past, where Jade’s battle for survival and she discovers a connection between her father and the Umbrella Corporation.
