2nd Season Of Resident Evil Won’t Be Getting On Netflix
Resident Evil by Ahad Raza Mir won’t be getting a second season on Netflix.
The announcement was made a month and a half after the show’s July 14 debut.
According to a Deadline story on Friday, the show did not meet the requirements for any show to be renewed since it did not perform well enough in Netflix’s top 10 global ratings or have a favourable cost-to-view ratio on the streaming service.
