Lance Reddick on ‘Resident Evil’ CANCELLATION: “We’ve made an amazing show”
Through his Twitter, the actor Lance Reddick broke the silence on the series’ cancellationresident Evil‘, releasing a video to thank viewers and those involved who helped get the project off the ground.
“We worked hard, we had a lot of fun and we made an amazing show,” he declared.
He adds, “I want to thank the fans who watched the show and understood what we were trying to do. I also want to thank the showrunners, my co-stars and the executives at Netflix who believed in our series.”
It is worth remembering that, despite the series having entered the hall of the most watched productions in Netflixsubscribers hated the attraction, which had already become a joke after accumulating negative comments.
Because of this, the cancellation after the 1st season was not really a surprise, considering the shallow plot, the flaws in the script and the bad performances…
On social media, even franchise fan pages are celebrating the decision, along with hundreds of fans who were dissatisfied with the series’ outcome.
Check out the reactions:
