Netflix's 'Resident Evil’ Series Cast Have Reacted To The Show Being Cancelled

Netflix's 'Resident Evil’ Series Cast Have Reacted To The Show Being Cancelled

Actor Lance Reddick has given his thoughts on Netflix's cancellation of Resident Evil.

We’re on the precipice of entering the golden-age of video games adaptations, but we’re not quite there yet. The first teaser for HBO’s upcoming The Last of Us series looks hugely promising, as do these on-set photos from Amazon’s Fallout project. One series that failed to deliver though was Netflix’s Resident Evil. The show was torn apart by viewers and it’s now been cancelled after just one season.

Speaking of The Last of Us, check out the incredible launch trailer for The Last of Us Part I which releases this week.

According to Deadline, Netflix pulled the plug on a potential second season citing poor viewership figures. Deadline claimed that the viewing figures didn’t justify the cost of making another series, plus Resident Evil failed to hang around in Netflix’s Top 10 for very long. Since the news broke, the cast have reacted to the news.

Albert Wesker actor Lance Reddick said, “I want to do this video because I wanted to do some acknowledgments and some thank yous. As all of you are well aware by now, our show Resident Evil on Netflix has been cancelled, and the haters and the trolls notwithstanding, I want to give a special thank you to all the fans who watched the show, got what we were doing, and really loved it because there are a hell of a lot of you.”

He added, “We worked our asses off. We had a great time. And we made a helluva show. Thank you, onward and upward.” Much of the rest of the cast is yet to comment on the cancellation, but we’ll certainly be keeping an eye out.
