Jade and Billie, the daughters of Albert Wesker, will be the heroines of this sequel in 2036.
A few months after the movie Welcome to Raccoon City, resident Evil will be back, in the form of a series, on Netflix: on Thursday July 14, the eight episodes of season 1 will be released and here are already the first visuals (below).
By the way, the streamer reveals the story that will “redefining the legendary horror franchise”in the words of showrunner Andrew Dabb (supernatural).
“Set in the year 2036, the series picks up 14 years after a deadly virus caused a global apocalypse. Jade Wesker fights for her survival in a world overrun by infected and bloodthirsty creatures. In this utter carnage, Jade is haunted by her past in New Raccoon City, by her father’s chilling dealings with the Umbrella Corporation, but especially by what happened to her sister, Billie.”
In the cast, Lance Reddick (Bosch, Fringe) will play the famous Albert Wesker, commander of the STARS in the original video game, alongside Ella Balinska (Charlie’s Angels), Tamara Smart (The Worst Witch), Siena Agudong (No Good Nick), Adeline Rudolph (sabrina) and Paola Nuñez (The Purge).
A priori, even if it will always be produced by Constantin Film, this new series has nothing to do with the films worn by Milla Jovovich, nor with the adaptation of resident Evil released last year. The first two episodes were directed by Bronwen Hughes (The Walking Dead).
