Netflix has opted not to renew Ahad Raza Mir’s Resident Evil for a second season. The news comes a month and a half after it debuted on the site on July 14.

On Friday, Deadline reported that the show did not have a strong enough showing on Netflix’s worldwide top 10 ratings, nor was its cost versus views on the streaming site high enough, a criteria for any show to be renewed.

Falling behind with Stranger Things that released at the same time, Resident Evil, which starred Charlie’s Angels actor Ella Balinska, debuted at the second spot on the worldwide trends list with 72.7 million hours viewed on its opening weekend. However, the show did not deliver big for the second week. For the third week, the show dropped, falling out of the top 10 ranking.

Deadline reported that the latest Resident Evil incarnation also logged an underwhelming 55 per cent from critics on Rotten Tomatoes and a total of 26pc audience score.

Based on a video game, Resident Evil hails from showrunner Andrew Dabb and is placed in the future in 2036, 14 years after a virus that causes a global apocalypse, and Balinska’s Jade Wesker fights to survive in the new world of blood-thirsty creatures.

The series also stars Lance Reddick, Tamara Smart, Siena Agudong, Adeline Rudolph Connor Gosatti and Turlough Convery. Resident Evil was produced and written by Mary Leah Sutton of Time After Time.

One of the best adaptations of REs - feel bad it didn't renew, had makings of a legend...

Useless show. Not worth watching.

I have watched the first season. It looked like a cheap kids version of REv. Good thing that they decided not to continue.
