Last year, it was reported that Netflix was developing a live-action Resident Evil series. Now, its description has apparently leaked and all but confirms that the horror show will be headed to a streaming device near you in the future.ResetERA user Jawmuncher spotted the now removed description on Netflix's Media Center. While it can no longer be found there, a quick trip to the Wayback Machine allows you to view the paragraph that gives a glimpse into what this series will be.

"The town of Clearfield, MD has long stood in the shadow of three seemingly unrelated behemoths – the Umbrella Corporation, 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 outbreak."This description aligns with Deadline's report of the existence of the series last January that said it would "explore the dark inner workings of the Umbrella Corporation and the new world order caused by the outbreak of the T-virus."

A Resident Evil Netflix series arriving this year would be a great thing for fans who are already getting the Resident Evil 3: Nemesis Remake on April 3, 2020.

This also isn't the only Resident Evil rumor floating about, as a recent report revealed that Resident Evil 8 may stay in the first-person perspective, star Resident Evil 7's Ethan Winters, and feature werewolves.
