Netflix Resident Evil Release Date
On Thursday the 17, Netflix announced the official release date for their upcoming Resident Evil live-action series. When the Wesker kids move to New Raccoon City, the secrets they uncover might just be the end of everything. The eight, one-hour episode season will be helmed by Andrew Dabb (Supernatural), Bronwen Hughes (The Walking Dead, The Journey Is the Destination) will direct the first two episodes. Resident Evil, a new live-action series based on Capcom’s legendary survival horror franchise, is coming to Netflix on July 14th.
The series was first reported on back in January 2019 by Deadline. The series itself will be broken up into two timelines. In the first timeline, fourteen-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.
In the second timeline, well over a decade into the future: there are less than fifteen million people left on Earth. And more than six billion monsters – people and animals infected with the T-virus. Jade, now thirty, struggles to survive in this New World, while the secrets from her past – about her sister, her father, and herself – continue to haunt her.
This series will star Lance Reddick, Ella Balinska, Tamara Smart, Siena Agudong, Adeline Rudolph, and Paola Nuñez. Andrew Dabb, the Showrunner/Executive Producer/Writer, 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.
