It is being reported by Deadline that Netflix has cancelled Resident Evil after just one season. The news comes just six weeks after the horror drama released its 8-episode freshman run, which ultimately received a mixed reception from critics and viewers.

Adapted from the Capcom video game franchise of the same name, the series is set in the year 2036, where Jade Wesker fights for survival in a world overrun by blood-thirsty infected creatures. It has been 14 years since a deadly virus caused a global apocalypse, and Jade has been haunted by her past in New Raccoon City, by her dad's chilling connections to the mysterious Umbrella Corporation, and by what happened to her sister.
