Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness will air exclusively on the streaming service Netflix starting July 8.
After dropping countless teasers and reveals, Netflix has finally given us an official release date of the much-awaited series. The animated series of the beloved horror-shooter franchise will be produced by TMS Entertainment and is set to air exclusively on Netflix starting July 8th. According to TMS, here is the plot:
“The series takes place in 2006 after a hacking incident is uncovered at the White House. Leon Kennedy was ordered to investigate the incident, but he encounters zombies when the White House is targeted in a mysterious attack. He later meets Claire, who’s been checking a strange drawing made by a child refugee while working on a Terrasave-led mission to oversee construction of a welfare facility”
So, we know that the series’ timeline falls in line right after the events of Resident Evil 4. The protagonist of the series is none other than Leon Kennedy, who is one of the two main characters in Resident Evil 2 and the main protagonist of Resident Evil 4. Furthermore, he is also one of the seven playable characters of Resident Evil 6.

Judging by the release date Netflix has set for the series, it is likely that Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness will be a huge success. That’s because fans will be more eager to try out the series after they have savoured the recently released Resident Evil Village.
Resident Evil is one of Capcom’s greatest successes and is immensely popular judging by the fact that the video-game franchise has shipped over 110 million copies worldwide. Moreover, it has also received six live-action film adaptations. However, this is the first time that the franchise is receiving a television series of its own, that too in complete CGI.
