Netflix Resident Evil Series Takes Place Across Two Timelines

The new Resident Evil live-action series is approaching its release date: July 14, 2022. Netflix confirmed the exact date with a new teaser trailer that lays out the premise of the show. The trailer itself first aired as part of Netflix’s ongoing “Geeked Week” event promoting upcoming productions.

The Netflix Resident Evil trailer is the most substantial look yet at the series, which has been in development since 2020. It doesn’t appear to have direct connections to other Resident Evil media. Compared to the teaser released in May, there are also many more looks at the monsters about to turn things upside down for teen sisters Jade and Billie Wesker (Ella Balinska and Adeline Rudolph). They and their father Albert Wesker (Lance Reddick) move to New Raccoon City in 2022. The city is run by the Umbrella Corporation, which is concealing sinister activities involving the T-virus, the classic zombie-creating age of Resident Evil lore. According to a description from The Hollywood Reporter, the series will take place in two time periods: 2022 and 2036.

In 2022, the sisters will explore the city and uncover its dark secrets, and their father’s possible involvement in them. Jade in particular will be involved in an incident that causes the world to be overrun by T-virus-mutated monsters and zombies. In 2036, Jade has been struggling to survive in the fallen world, haunted by her past and looking for clues as to what happened to her sister.

The trailer also contains scenes showing off a number of monsters, such as one that resembles a Licker, zombie dogs, giant spiders, and what may be the series’ take on a Tyrant or Nemesis.

Resident Evil premieres on Netflix on July 14, 2022. A remake of Resident Evil 4 is in development for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and PC.
