Resident Evil Infinite Darkness Netflix Series Details Revealed
The film and television industries have notably set their future content release plans with a heavy emphasis on video game adaptations. Netflix has been successful in these ventures with their Castlevania anime series and their live-action adaptation of The Witcher. The streaming service surprised many by announcing that they had greenlit both a live-action series and an animated series set in the Resident Evil universe. Very little was revealed about either series, except for the involvement of veteran Resident Evil characters. Now, Netflix has revealed more details about the casting and plot of the animated series Resident Evil Infinite Darkness.

As reported by Game Informer, Netflix unveiled new updates about the series on its official Twitter account regarding Resident Evil Infinite Darkness. A new poster puts focus on the White House in Washington D.C. and confirms a 2021 premiere for the series. Plot details given by Netflix provide the exposition of the US White House being hacked in 2006, leading to an investigation by Leon S. Kennedy and others. During their meeting, a power outage in the White House simultaneously occurs with a zombie invasion. The rest of the plot details are as follows:
Terrasave employee Claire Redfield encounters a strange painting by a boy with aphasia in a country he visited to help refugees. Claire pursues her own investigation triggered by the picture that seems to have drawn a virus-infected person.
The next morning, Claire visits the White House to petition for the construction of a welfare facility, finds Leon who happens to meet again, and shows the boy’s drawing. Leon realizes something about the connection between the White House zombie incident and the strange painting but leaves the scene saying it has nothing to do with Claire. The two zombie outbreaks that took place in distant countries eventually evolved into a nation-shaking situation.”
A separate tweet also confirmed that voice actors Nick Apostolides and Stephanie Panisello will both reprise their roles as Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield, respectively. Both had previously performed as the characters in the Resident Evil 2 game remake. It’s great to know that this connection to the games will be kept, and it will be interesting to see this new story play out in full animation. Hopefully, the show is successful and infectiously popular.
