• The synopsis of the rumored "Resident Evil" series by Netflix was leaked online
  • The description of the live-action series was uploaded on the streaming service's Media Center
  • In contrast to the game, the series won't be in Raccoon City
  • The series will center twenty-six years after the T-Virus was discovered 

The idea of Netflix developing a live-action series based on the “Resident Evil” lore has been crawling in the interwebs since last year, and it was only recently that a synopsis was leaked, giving us a glimpse of what the series would be.

As reported by Forbes, the synopsis of the Netflix Original series was “uploaded by mistake” to the streaming service's Media Center. The tag “Resident Evil” prompted 10 searches, too, but scrolling down gave eagle eyes a short yet strong summary of the series.

In contrast with the popular gaming title, Netflix's “Resident Evil” won't be in Raccoon City. Instead, it will revolve around the town of Clearfield, Maryland, the “decommissioned” Greenwood Asylum and Washington D.C.

“Today, twenty-six years after the discovery of the T-Virus, secrets held by the three will start to be revealed at the first signs of the outbreak,” pointed the synopsis.

With the leaked synopsis already bored deep in the mindsets of fans who are waiting for something like this to happen, IGN relayed a January 2019 article by Deadline. It said that the series aims to expand the “Resident Evil” universe and will “explore the dark inner workings of the Umbrella Corporation and the new world order caused by the outbreak of the T-Virus.”

Deadline did justice in teasing us of what the series would be, and so did the leaked synopsis. Both sounded like they're on the same page, too, plus the fact that the outlet mentioned that Constanin Films, the production house behind the Milla Jovovich-starred film franchise of the same name, will also be involved with the production.

IGN also had a report on a cancelled “Resident Evil” TV series called “Arklay” in 2017.
