Let's just hope it starts out well!
There have been countless great TV shows over the years, but some of them end up fizzling out, rather than maintaining the strong narratives of their earlier years. This comes from a lack of a cohesive story from the start, but apparently with Netflix’s upcoming Resident Evil series, that won’t be the case.
In an interview with Comicbook.com, showrunner Andrew Dabb was asked if there’s a plan cemented for the story of Resident Evil. Thankfully, it very much appears there is.
“The truth of the matter is that we have an ending. And we can progress fast or slow toward that ending. Obviously, the longer we’re on the air, the more stuff fun stuff we can do, and the more things we can bring in. But yeah, I think you have to start this not with an ending carved in stone, because you have to discover ideas along the way. But with an idea of where you’re going with the characters,” Dabb continued. “Not so much with like, you know, what is that liquor number seven gonna be in five years, you know what I mean? But where are these girls gonna be? Where’s Wesker going to be? How did these things work? And you’ll see nods to that, particularly in the future storyline with little hints of things that will happen in the a storyline that are kind of leading into the Z storyline, which is the future storyline. And, and I think it creates a little bit of a … you’ve come out of season one with questions like, ‘Oh, but if they said this, but how do they get from there to there?’ Well, that hopefully will be answered.”
