All The Video Game Characters We’re Expecting In Netflix’s Resident Evil Season 2
From Lady Dimitrescu to Jake Muller, here are the best Resident Evil characters we expect to see in Season 2 of Netflix’s Resident Evil series.
Posted on July 25, 2022
Season 1 mostly focuses on establishing new characters in this unforgivable and familiar universe, and while we don’t see any familiar faces, there are a ton of neat references to every Resident Evil game.
Things should be different in Resident Evil Season 2, and if you’ve completed Season 1, you already know one of the fan-favorite characters who should be returning. With that said, here are the Resident Evil game characters we expect to see in Season 2 of Netflix’s Resident Evil TV series.
Sultry spy, Ada Wong, is the only confirmed video game character to make an appearance in Resident Evil Season 2. At the end of Season 1, Billie and Jade’s father sends them to find Wong, who found somewhere in Akihabara, Japan.
If Netflix greenlights Resident Evil season 2, it would be interesting to see Ada Wong’s role in the young Weskers’ journey, especially since the real Wesker and Wong didn’t part ways in the right terms.
Will Wong tell them about Wesker’s past? Will she tell them about Wesker’s son and their brother – Jake Muller? More importantly, will this interaction influence Billie’s decision to join Umbrella?
Wong’s appearance in Netflix’s Resident Evil Season 2 opens up a lot of unique possibilities, which should excite veteran fans.
It would be absurd if the Wesker sisters didn’t meet the OG Wesker’s son – Jake Muller, at some point in history. Wesker survived the events of Resident Evil 6, so we know he’s out there somewhere.
A family reunion won’t be too far-fetched, especially since Jake was last seen in Europe, where the series’ 2036 timeline is set.
The Wesker siblings can even bond through their hatred for the Albert Wesker and Umbrella companies.
Young and fierce Sherry Birkin has not been seen since the events of Resident Evil 6 although we know she is alive and well.
The unexpected turn of events at the end of Season 1 leaves the Wesker siblings in a traumatized state, and there’s no one better than Sherry (who went through something similar at a young age) who would understand their pain.
Sherry could be an ideal parent figure for the younger Wesker siblings, as Leon and Claire were for her. As for her, this wouldn’t be the first time she’s encountered a runaway Wesker wanted by the Umbrella Corporation.
The tall vampire lady of Resident Evil Village became an overnight sensation when the game’s trailer dropped. RE Village owes a lot to Lady Dimitrescu for its immense popularity and high sales, and Netflix’s Resident Evil could certainly use some of that.
While Dimitrescu may have met an untimely demise in the RE Village, she could still appear in one of the series’ timelines. A high-octane action sequence featuring Lady D live-action might be just what Resident Evil season 2 needs for a good TRP.
Also, to make things more authentic, the series might cast original Lady D actress Maggi Robertson as she fits the live-action role perfectly.
The series veteran and everyone’s favorite ex-cop hasn’t appeared in Resident Evil games since Resident Evil 6 in 2012. Of course, he appeared in the RE 2 remake and will return in the Resident Evil remake. Evil 4 in 2023, but those appearances won’t necessarily quench the thirst of hardcore Resident Evil fans who are worried about Leon’s current whereabouts.
If Resident Evil 6 was any indication, Leon could live a happy life with Ada Wong (at least that’s what fans hope), and since Wong is confirmed to return, fans might be hoping to see Leon make an appearance as well. .
Resident Evil Village brought in Chris Redfield and pushed its narrative in a meaningful direction. While it’s hard to imagine Leon being part of Resident Evil 9, the least Capcom can do is convince Netflix’s showrunner to bring him back into the series.
In all honesty, Leon in Resident Evil season 2 might be the only character this series needs to appeal to die-hard RE fans who were unhappy with season 1.
