Netflix revealed last year that it was working on a new live action series set in the world of Resident Evil and a new report that has emerged has provided us with some additional details of the project. While it doesn’t look like it will launch anytime soon, production has almost hit a major point.
In a new story from The Illuminerdi, it has been said that Netflix’s Resident Evil TV show is scheduled to begin filming next month. No details have been given on when the series will arrive on Netflix, but if filming begins next month, it will be one of the first big steps in producing the show.
The report also reveals some details of new characters that will appear in Demonic Resident as well. As we have already known before, the story of this series is going to focus on the children of Albert Wesker, who is one of the main antagonists of the video game franchise. Wesker’s children, named Jade and Billie, are said to have been further described in two new castings. The two children are fraternal twins and Jade is mentioned as being more distant, while Billie is said to have a kind heart. However, this nature ends up hurting Billie in the long run and sets some of the plot points of the story in motion.

Lastly, another character named Evelyn has also been mentioned in these reported casting calls. Evelyn is said to be aggressive and is roughly the same age as Albert. She also has qualities that make her sound like she could be one of the antagonists on the show.
It is important to note that, for now, it does not appear that Netflix or Constantin Film have cast any actor for these roles. However, given the fact that filming could begin soon, that is likely to change.
