James R | On 13, May 2022
Netflix is venturing into New Racoon City this July, and two new trailers give us a first look at its Resident Evil series.
The live-action horror show is set in 2036, 14 years after “Joy”, a deadly virus, caused a global apocalypse. The series follows Jade Wesker, who fights for survival in a world overrun by the blood-thirsty infected and mind-shattering creatures. In this absolute carnage, Jade is haunted by her past in New Raccoon City, by her father’s chilling connections to the sinister Umbrella Corporation but mostly by what happened to her sister, Billie.
Andrew Dabb executive produces and writes the series alongside Mary Leah Sutton. Ella Balinska stars as Jade, leading a cast that includes Tamara Smart, Siena Agudong, Adeline Rudolph, Paola Nuñez, Ahad Raza, Connor Gossatti, Turlough Convery and Lance Reddick as the legendary villain Albert.
You can see them in action when the series premieres on 14th July. Here are the new videos:
Netflix unveils new Resident Evil series
27th August 2020
Netflix has officially unveiled its new Residential Evil series, inspired by the legendary video game franchise.
The scripted live action series will tell a brand new story across two timelines. In the first timeline, 14-year-old sisters Jade and Billie Wesker are moved to New Raccoon City. A manufactured, corporate town, forced on them right as adolescence is in full swing. But the more time they spend there, the more they come to realize that the town is more than it seems and their father may be concealing dark secrets. Secrets that could destroy the world. Cut to the second timeline, well over a decade into the future: there are fewer than 15 million people left on Earth. And more than 6 billion monsters – people and animals infected with the T-virus. Jade, now 30, struggles to survive in this New World, while the secrets from her past – about her sister, her father and herself – continue to haunt her.
ANDREW DABB, Showrunner and Executive Producer, said: “Resident Evil is my favorite game of all time. I’m incredibly excited to tell a new chapter in this amazing story and bring the first ever Resident Evil series to Netflix members around the world. For every type of Resident Evil fan, including those joining us for the first time, the series will be complete with a lot of old friends, and some things (bloodthirsty, insane things) people have never seen before.”
Dabb will exec produce the eight-episode series alongside Bronwen Hughes (The Walking Dead), who will direct the first two episodes. Other EPs include Robert Kulzer and Oliver Berben of Constantin Film and Mary Leah Sutton. Constantin Film CEO Martin Moszkowicz is also on board as producer.
