What are people saying about the Netflix series?
Once Netflix tweeted the news about the show’s release date and trailer, fans of the franchise chimed in with their thoughts.
One user wrote: “Why is it so difficult to adapt resident evil into other forms of media. This just looks like a generic teenage drama. It was already seeming like a dumpster fire before this trailer was revealed. At least welcome to raccoon city was FAITHFUL to the material”
A separate user wrote: “As a hardcore fan of the series. Why can we not wait for a series to come out before you all flip the lid. Its CONNECTED to resident evil with brand new characters set in a place we have never seen before.
“I am sure it will have the lore in place. Just wait and see then judge”
While some were skeptical from seeing the trailer, some fans defended the new show.
One other user wrote: “Also some Resi fans will literally never be happy, omg. All I see is complaining. It hasn’t even come out yet!!”
