Resident Evil Netflix Series Plot Accidentally Leaked by Streaming Giant

A brief blurb about the location and characters of Netflix's Resident Evil TV show came online and was removed. But they forgot about the Wayback Machine ...

Netflix may not have officially announced the series or confirmed any details, but the streaming giant hasn't exactly been stealthy about keeping the Resident Evil series under wraps.

A synopsis of the live-action show was recently posted online by Netflix but then quickly removed. The internet never forgets, though, and the Wayback Machine still has the goods

According to the blurb, Resident Evil notably won't take place in Raccoon City or the city's name may have been changed for the TV show as now we're headed to Clearfield, Maryland.

Here's the scoop straight from Netflix:

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, twenty-six years after the discovery of the T-Virus, secrets held by the three will start to be revealed at the first signs of outbreak.

The last we heard of the series came from a leaked production list indicating the Resident Evil Netflix series should start filming this summer.

What are you hoping to see from the live-action adaptation, and when do you think the official announcement will come online?
