‘Resident Evil’: First Trailer Lands For Netflix Live-Action Series, Premiering July
Netflix has dropped the first teaser trailer for their upcoming live-action ‘Resident Evil‘ series, which premieres this July on the streaming service.
The year is 2022, and nothing eventful ever happens in the peaceful New Raccoon City… Jump forward to 2036, and all that has changed… 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.
The eight-episode stars Lance Reddick (‘Bosch’, ‘American Horror Story’) as Albert Wesker and Ella Balinska (‘The Athena’) as Jade, alongside Tamara Smart (‘The Worst Witch’), Siena Agudong (‘No Good Nick’), Adeline Rudolph (‘Riverdale’) and Paola Nuñez (‘The Purge’). Additional cast members are Ahad Raza Mir (‘Ehd-e-Wafa’), Connor Gossatti (‘3rd Night’) and Turlough Convery (‘Killing Eve’, ‘Sanditon’, ‘Poldark’).
Andrew Dabb (‘Supernatural’) is the creator and serves as showrunner on the drama. Dabb also executive produces and writes the series alongside Mary Leah Sutton (‘Tell Me a Story’, ‘The Following’). Constantin Film serves as the studio with also Robert Kulzer and Oliver Berben exec producing. Constantin Film CEO Martin Moszkowicz produces.
‘Resident Evil‘ premieres Thursday, 14th July 2022 on Netflix UK and worldwide.
