Nobody is perfect. No matter how much money you make with hit shows and a plethora of successful original shows, you’re still kind of bound to mess it up. Exhibit A: Netflix.
As you may know (or not), the unannounced Resident Evil show is coming to the streaming platform in the near future. With that, fans have been searching all over the internet for a clue or any kind of information on the show. Well, recently, they just got it. To make matters worse, they didn’t even need to find it from unreliable sources. They got it from the most reliable website there is, Netflix themselves.
Netflix published THE plot description of the Resident Evil show but quickly pulls it back and all the information with it, but you know the fans, they’re THERE.
Netflix’s Media Center was the channel of controversy. That’s where the plot was published and the Twitter account of the Resident Evil Wiki got their hands on it and quickly posted it on their social media profile. The description of the Netflix adaptation is nowhere to be found now but we’re on the internet and nothing is safe on the internet. As a matter of fact, we can take a trip down memory lane and just read what the description says. If you’re not ready for this, at least skip two to three paragraphs ahead. I’m just looking out for you, boys and girls.
It has finally been confirmed that a Netflix adaptation of Resident Evil is in the works. Attached is a description taken from Netflix's Media Center. See also a WaybackMachine archive of the search result we took a few minutes ago:https://t.co/sAtmqupwuV pic.twitter.com/wmPgoLtafI

“The town of Clearfield, MD has long stood in the shadow of three seemingly unrelated behemoths – the Umbrella Corporation, the decommissioned Greenwood Asylum, and Washington, D.C. Today, 26 years after the discovery of the T-Virus, secrets held by the three will start to be revealed at the first signs of outbreak.”
Clearfield, MD? Greenwood Asylum? Whose name am I cursing for all of these unfamiliar names? And where in the Resident Evil universe have I seen these? How did this leaked information even help in making me want to watch this? Well, that’s the point. We wouldn’t know. It’s a completely different world in that show, and that just makes it more exciting in that perspective. The Umbrella Corporation, though, is back and I think that’s a plus for the fans! However, I hope you channel your excitement for what’s to come, most especially those unfamiliar locations.
It’s looking up from here, honestly. I even think that was a stint by Netflix to leak those kinds of information. It ramps up excitement for Resident Evil fans. It worked, Netflix. You and your million-dollar ideas always do.
