We’ve all seen the Resident Evil live-action movies but back in 2020, Capcom and Netflix teamed up for something new – a live action Resident Evil series. The eight-episode first season has been in the works for some time and is now heading towards a July debut.
As revealed by Netflix this week, the live action Resident Evil series will debut on the 14th of July. The Netflix series is a separate adaptation and is not connected to any of the previous films, including Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City, which released late last year.
The TV series will take place across two timelines. The first focuses on Jade and Billie Wesker, the two young daughters of Albert Wesker, as they first move to New Racoon City. During their time there, they’ll grow suspicious of their father’s work and the secrets he is keeping from them. In the second timeline, Jade is 30 years old, struggling to survive in a world infected by the T-Virus, all while her family’s secrets continue to haunt her.
Resident Evil first launched in 1996 and over time, it has gone on to be successful in both video games and film. The Resident Evil movie series grossed more than $1 billion worldwide.
