RESIDENT EVIL: Infinite Darkness, known as BIOHAZARD:Infinite Darkness (バイオハザード:インフィニット ダークネス Baiohazādo infinitto dākunesu?) in Japan, is an animated series that is part of the series' 25th Anniversary and created by TMS Entertainment and Quebico under supervision of Capcom producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi. The series aired on the Netflix streaming service in 2021. It features two returning protagonists, Leon Scott Kennedy and Claire Redfield and was released on July 8, 2021.[1] The event of the series took place in 2006, 2 years after Resident Evil 4 and shortly before the Raid on the Spencer Estate in Lost in Nightmares campaign of Resident Evil 5.

A separate live-action Resident Evil series is also being produced by Netflix, but the release date has not been announced.

Plot

In October 2000, US intervention in the Penamstan Civil War goes awry when an Army helicopter is shot down. An Army special operations unit, the "Mad Dogs", are sent to the crash site as a rescue mission, but find they have become Zombies. The incident is classified, and the soldiers are returned to Texas as heroes for their fighting against the guerrillas.

Six years later, evidence is discovered by TerraSave activist Claire Redfield, which reveals an expansive conspiracy to cover-up the deployment of bioweapons. Meanwhile, the White House is placed on alert after a mole steals top secret files regarding the Shanghai Institutes for Biological Sciences, followed soon-after by the use of bioweapons there. In the aftermath of the incident, now covered-up too, Army operator Leon S. Kennedy meets with Redfield and discovers the incidents in 2000 and now are linked.

Development

Production of the series is being handled by TMS Entertainment and Quebico, the latter providing the 3D animation. As is typical with Capcom's licensing since Resident Evil 4, producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi has creative oversight of the project to maintain Capcom's vision and the flow of canon with the games. What is known so far is that Quebico and TMS chose to focus on ultra-realism with the animations, from character expressions to environmental effects like dust.
