HBO Renews ‘House of the Dragon’ While Netflix Cancels ‘Resident Evil’

Well, I think we all saw this news coming.

Deadline reports that HBO has renewed its Game of Thrones prequel House of the Dragon for a second season, following a strong series premiere. The series is based on George R.R. Martin’s Fire & Blood and is set 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones, telling the story of House Targaryen.

The main cast of House of the Dragon consists of Paddy Considine, Matt Smith, Olivia Cooke, Emma D’Arcy, Steve Toussaint, Eve Best, Fabien Frankel, Sonoya Mizuno, and Rhys Ifans.

Meanwhile, according to Deadline, Netflix has canceled its live-action series adaptation of Resident Evil after a single season. The series took place in 2036, fourteen years after a deadly virus caused a global apocalypse, and followed Jade Wesker (Ella Balinska) as she fights for survival in a world overrun by the blood-thirsty infected and insane creatures.

Lance Reddick, who starred in Resident Evil as Albert Wesker, took to Twitter following the series’ cancellation to express his thanks to everyone who watched the adaptation of the popular video game franchise.

House of the Dragon continues to air new episodes each Sunday on HBO and HBO Max. Resident Evil is available to binge on Netflix.

Are you happy House of the Dragon got renewed? Do you care that Resident Evil was canceled?
