At the time of writing, Netflix has yet to renew demonic resident for a second season.
Given the popularity of the franchise, there are sure to be a lot of eyes on the show, which means it’s guaranteed to demonic resident it will be seen on many top ten lists around the world. However, it remains to be seen if he can get the numbers he needs to secure a second season.
The opening weekend was a very promising one for Resident Evil, which garnered 72 million hours in its first three days on the service. In week 2 (its first full week) it held onto the number 2 spot for the week with 73 million.
Week 3 is where things start to get a bit grim and why we say that Resident Evil is now at risk. It saw a 63% drop in viewing hours globally.
|week period||Hours viewed (M)||Range||Week in the Top 10|
|July 10, 2022 to July 17, 2022||72,670,000||two||1|

How is Resident Evil doing with reviews?
Reviews from both critics and the public have not been especially kind.
Weather reviews from critics were ultimately split (it has a 53% on RottenTomatoes)the public has so far expressed quite a bit of distaste for the series.
As of August, the series is currently it only carries a 3.8/10 on IMDb (this is up from the 3.4 from launch weekend) and 26% on RottenTomatoes.
For context, Netflix has, rightly or wrongly, developed a reputation for adapting anime or video games and doing the source material an injustice. That certainly is the problem here.
Many of the fan reviews seem to cite this in their reviews. An IMDb review, for example, is titled “This is NOT “Resident Evil”!” adding:
“When the rights to do these types of shows are sold or loaned, there must be some basic rules. Netflix has hurt so many franchises by making poor material that isn’t funny at all, really. I won’t bore you, there are lists of all the movies and shows that Netflix and other streaming services have completely destroyed.”
what to expect from demonic resident season 2?
tyrant running rampant
It was strongly hinted throughout the season that the collapse of civilization was caused by Joy, the miracle pill that Albert Wesker had been working on for Umbrella. However, it appears that what may have caused the initial outbreak in New Raccoon City is the escaped Tyrant.
One of the most powerful bioweapons ever created by Umbrella, Tyrants are a force of nature and virtually impossible to destroy with conventional methods. With a Tyrant on the loose on the streets of New Raccoon City and Cape Town just an hour away, it’s not hard to see how an infection could spread quickly.
We may see Jade, Billie and Uncle Bert try to escape South Africa as the virus spreads around them.
Before leaving the lab, Albert gave Jade a piece of paper with Ada Wong’s address on it. A former employee of the original Albert Wesker, it will be interesting to know what the relationship is between Ada and the cloned Albert.
A master of hand-to-hand combat and the use of small arms, Ada can teach Jade how to fight.
Jade vs. Billie
Suffice to say, Jade and Billie are currently the most dysfunctional pair of siblings on the planet. But with Billie kidnapping her niece Bea from her, Jade will stop at nothing to bring her daughter home.
There’s also the question of what abilities Bea possesses, as she exhibited some level of control over the giant crocodile. It’s unclear if Bea can control any of the Zeros, but you can bet Billie will definitely be looking to experiment on Bea’s blood.
Where is the real Albert Wesker?
As the series is loosely tied to video game history, by the events of 2022, the original Albert Wesker should have been destroyed by Chris Redfield in an African volcano. But nothing is simple for an individual like Wesker, an expert in escaping certain death.
Who will be in the cast of demonic resident?
We can expect some of the following cast members to return for the second season of demonic resident:

|young jade wesker||smart tamara|
|Billie Wesker||adeline rodolfo|
|Young Billie Esker||sienna sharpong|

No new cast members have been announced, but we can expect to see Ada Wong’s character in the second season given the direction of the story.
