, a fan site that worked to uncover information on "The Witcher
" series both before and after release, is reporting to have unearthed a production entry for the "Resident Evil" series which confirms some key details. The show is set to be eight episodes, with each being 60-minutes in length. This isn't a surprise, that formula has quickly become Netflix's standard season structure for its original shows. As well as confirming that shooting will begin in June, the entry also notes on-location prep work will begin in April, with the main hub of production being based in South Africa. If this information is accurate, this would be a new location for the live-action reimagining of 'Resident Evil', with the films being shot primarily in Canada and Mexico prior to this. If re-shoots aren't required, several months of post-production should see it debut at roughly the same time as "The Witcher" did, which was towards the back end of last year. Failing that very tight timescale, a spring 2021 release might be more likely.
