The Resident Evil series was canceled after one season by Netflix

The Umbrella Corporation will close its doors as Deadline has reported that Netflix has canceled Resident Evil after only one season.

That Resident Evil the series was released a month and a half ago, and although it debuted at #2 with 72.7 million hours watched, it fell out of Netflix’s Top 10 after just three weeks. Combined with the cost of the series and lackluster reviews from critics and audiences, the cancellation of the Resident Evil is not a big surprise.

Taking place over two timelines – 2022 and 2036 – the Resident Evil the series revolved around Billie and Jade, children of Dr. Albert Wesker, the creator of the T virus. “Jade Wesker fights for survival in a world overrun by the bloodthirsty infected and demented creatures,” reads the official synopsis. “In this absolute carnage, Jade is haunted by her past in New Raccoon City, by her father’s terrifying connections to the sinister Umbrella Corporation, but most of all by what happened to her sister, Billie.The series starred Lance Reddick, Ella Balinska, Tamara Smart, Siena Agudong, Adeline Rudolph, Paola Nuñez, Ahad Raza Mir, Connor Gossatti and Turlough Convery.

Resident Evil boasts a mediocre 55% score on Rotten Tomatoes, but the reaction from fans and audiences was almost all negative. In his review of Resident Evil series, our own Alex Maidy called it a “impressive mess” that did not capture the tone of the franchise. “Resident Evil suffers from consistently terrible dialogue,” Maidy wrote in her review. “Each episode features some of the scariest lines I’ve heard from a series with as much marketing as Netflix has invested here. The only actor who seems to be able to deliver his lines without sounding ridiculous is Reddick, but that guy could read anything and sound cool.You can check out the rest of Maidy’s review right here.
