Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness has finally been made available for streaming on Netflix after months of anticipation and waiting. With only four episodes to its name, it’s left plenty of room for a second season to expand the world of Resident Evil even further. We’re still waiting for Netflix to make a decision on the future of Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness but we’ll be keeping track of season 2 related below!
Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness, a Netflix Original Japanese animation horror series is set in the fictional universe of Resident Evil. The anime was directed by Eiichirō Hasumi, and animated by TMS Entertainment. The series was written by Shogo Moto and Hasumi.
Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness is now officially a Netflix Original. It was released by Capcom, the Japanese publisher and developer of video games.
Official Netflix Renewal Status: 08/07/2021
With Infinite Darkness having just released on Netflix it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the series hasn’t been renewed yet.
Some titles are renewed ahead of time, but this isn’t the case for Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness. Instead, we’ll be waiting weeks, to potentially months before we receive news on renewal. Netflix is waiting to gather all statistics and viewing data before renewing. This is why renewals take so long.
You can help Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness be renewed by recommending the show to your friends.
Given the popularity of the Resident Evil franchise, we can’t imagine the anime will be lacking in viewers.
Infinite Darkness' second season will be a busy one for Claire and Leon.
Tricell is the multi-industrial conglomerate that replaced Umbrella as the world’s most renowned pharmaceutical company and lead by Excella Gionne, a major antagonist of Capcom’s Resident Evil 5.
As Tricell was the defacto replacement to Umbrella, it’s unsurprising that the company was behind Wilson’s super solider project, and his attempt to establish a US military presence on the Chinese border.
With Leon and Claire going their separate ways, each will conduct their own investigation into the origin of Wilson’s manufactured virus, which will inevitably lead them to Tricell.
Leon and Claire’s involvement could be a major reason why the BSAA (Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance) begins its investigation into what Tricell is up to in Kijuju.
As a US Government agent, Leon couldn’t just give Claire the chip, despite the fact it was probably the right thing to do. Leon will likely want to use his resources as a government agent to discreetly investigate who was behind Wilson’s crimes and attempts at making super soldiers. Any investigation, given the respect he enjoys from President Trump, would be likely to be approved.
Claire will keep her job at TerraSave for human rights, and eventually have agents in the field.
Somehow Claire is likely to find herself involved in the next incident conjured up by Tricell, forcing her and Leon to work together again, which should lead the BSAA to conduct an investigation into Tricell’s affairs.
Given that the series hasn’t received its renewal yet any discussion surrounding a release date is merely speculation at this time.
It takes any animated project a significant period of time to produce, so if work isn’t already being conducted on a second season then don’t expect to see more episodes arrive in 2021, or in 2022 for that matter.
