Netflix has canceled its Resident Evil series after just one season. It’s not surprising if you’ve watched it. Netflix decided not to promote the second season of the show after releasing the first season last month. As for the reason why there is no official reason yet, but given my viewing of the show, it’s likely that Resident Evil didn’t live up to expectations in terms of both critical and audience reaction. It wasn’t very good. The show joins many other shows canceled after just one season on the streamer, including Cowboy Bebop, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, and more. Some of them are guaranteed and others not so much. It happens to both good and bad shows.
It didn’t help that Resident Evil’s release came right after Stranger Things’ highly anticipated season 4, which may have contributed to a lessthanstellar first weekend on the service. However, the series still debuted in second place behind Stranger Things with 72.7 million hours watched. Deadline reports that viewers watched 73.3 million hours of Resident Evil in its second week, ranking third on Netflix before falling out of the Netflix top 10 in its third week.
