Netflix Drops New Trailer for Live-Action 'Resident Evil' Series

Netflix has just released a new trailer for its upcoming live-action series adaptation of Capcom‘s beloved horror franchise Resident Evil during its Geeked Week event. Drawing inspiration from the video games, the new series will feature an eight-episode season directed by The Walking Dead‘s Bronwen Hughes and written by Supernatural‘s Andrew Dabb.

The show will explore a completely new story across two timelines, with the first following 14-year-old sisters Jade and Billie Wesker as they move into New Raccoon City with their father Albert Wesker while the second timeline skips to Jade becoming 30 years old and struggling to survive in a post-apocalyptic world while dealing with the dark secrets she has learned about her father, her sister and herself.

John Wick actor Lance Reddick will portray Albert Wesker alongside Ella Balinska, Tamara Smart, Siena Agudong, Adeline Rudolph, and Paola Nunez.
