Netflix Releases First Live-Action “Resident Evil” Series Trailer (Watch Here)

Evil has evolved.

Netflix has released the first trailer for its upcoming live-action Resident Evil series.

In this first look teaser, we are treated to plenty of action, horror, and even a little yoga! It is also confirmed that the series will take place over two different timelines.

Check it out below.

 

An official description for the series reads:

“Year 2036 – 14 years after a deadly virus caused a global apocalypse, Jade Wesker fights for survival in a world overrun by the blood-thirsty infected and insane creatures. In this absolute carnage, Jade is haunted by her past in New Raccoon City, by her father’s chilling connections to the Umbrella Corporation but mostly by what happened to her sister, Billie.”

Showrunner Andrew Dabb (Supernatural) helms the project that promises to have “the best of the Resident Evil Universe DNA – bad-ass heroines, insane creatures (some new/some familiar), a battle for survival, questions about what it means to be family, Umbrella Corporation’s greed and corruption; and of course, a deep mystery to unravel.”

This live-action adaptation will be Netflix’s second foray into the world of Resident Evil, with the streamer previously releasing the animated series Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness in July 2021.

Lance Reddick will star as Albert Wesker, alongside Seina Agudong and Tamara Smart who play his daughters Billie and Jade respectively. Ella Balinska, Adeline Rudolph , Paola Nuñez, Ahad Raza Mir, Connor Gossatti, Turlough Convery will all co-star.

The series, which promises to “redefine the legendary horror franchise,” will land on the streamer on July 14th.
