Streaming service Netflix has announced its live-action adaptation of Resident Evil will drop on 14th July 2022. This TV series will tell an entirely original tale within the universe, casting the likes of Lance Reddick and Ella Balinska. A couple of new pieces of general key art were released alongside the announcement, which you can view below. Eight episodes each an hour long makes up the first season.
It's been written by Supernatural scribe Andrew Dabb, and if you didn't catch the plot synopsis back in 2020, have a read of this (welcome) nonsense:
In the first timeline, 14-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.
Cut to 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.
We can't wait for some dumb fun in live-action. Will you be logging in to your Netflix account to catch this one? Stumble slowly into the comments below.
