Fans of the video game Resident Evil behold!! Ever since the first season aired on Netflix, there have been many rumors about its renewal. The rumors can be very irritating at times. Considering this, we did some research, and here is everything credible regarding Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness season 2.
Continue reading the article if you wish to be updated on the matter.
Let’s get started!
When is Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness season 2 Getting Released?
Capcom and Netflix recently joined hands to release an anime based on the famous game Resident Evil. Surprisingly, the show that went on air a few days ago (July 8th, 2021) has amassed a great viewership considering only 4 episodes.
Netflix has a good reputation for renewing shows, and if we talk about Resident Evil, the game-based anime has been quite popular among subscribers. So, there is a very high chance of season 2. Moreover, it takes Netflix 3 to 4 months to announce the news about renewals, which means there is still plenty of time left for them to decide.
Not just Netflix but Capcom also has a history of producing anime that last for multiple seasons. A few examples are “Castlevania” and “Dota: Blood of the Dragon.”
Will the Voice-Cast Return for the Show’s Renewal?
The new show was CGI produced, no wonder why it gave such a realistic impression. This, paired with the amazing vocal skills of the actors, caused the show to be a major hit.
The two main characters, in season 1, are played by Toshiyuki Morikawa (Leon S. Kennedy) and Yūko Kaida (Claire Redfield). If season 2 has to come, both these actors will probably come back too. Because why would Netflix change the voice of the main characters? It can be very risky and can cause the rating to go down.
If the Japanese voice cast remains unchanged, then most likely, there won’t be any changes in the English voice cast either.
The main plot of Resident Evil
The story revolves around two characters Leon and Claire, who are stuck in a zombie ravaged world. It is set in a post-apocalyptic world that zombies attacked.
They have a common enemy, Tricell. Tricell is an evil organization that continues producing the virus that leads to the end of the world even after the zombie outbreak.
Another plotline is; when there was an unexpected attack on the White House. While the character investigates, zombies attack the White House. The other main character, Claire, tries to unravel the story behind a child’s strange drawing. Somehow both characters meet, but we will leave that story for you to watch.
What will be the plot of Resident Evil’s sequel?
Infinite Darkness is set in 2006, around 3 years before what happens in Resident Evil 5. That means there are still some stories left for the writers to work on, and without those, the series will be considered incomplete.
Hopefully, the writers will continue with the plot and solve the mystery of those events. But this was just one of the many predicted storylines of season 2.
Season 2 can also focus on Leon and Claire’s reunion. Though they ended on good terms in season 1, seeing them work together would provide great content for the viewers.
Moreover, the show did not have a proper ending, and this might be the directors’ way of hinting at a second season.
Where can I watch Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness season 2?
The only existing season of Resident Evil can be streamed on Netflix or Hulu. If all things work out and the creators decide to renew the show, then most probably, it will be streamed on similar sites.
Season 1 had 4 episodes, each lasting for half an hour, so something similar is expected of the second installment.
Is there any official trailer of Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness season 2
Whenever a new show drops, Netlifx usually releases a teaser for the new season ( 2 to 3 weeks after the official release). But to this day, Netflix has not revealed anything yet.
Trailers for new seasons come out 3 to 4 months before the official release of the show. So if season 2 is under the pre-production phase, then official trailers will come out in mid or late 2023.
But again, these are just assumptions. Everything is under Netflix’s control, so we can’t say anything promising. Rest assured, if the streaming service announces anything regarding Resident Evil, we will let you know at the soonest.
That was all. You are now all caught up on all the information about Resident Evil’s season 2!
