Netflix’s Resident Evil Series Gets A Release Date

Netflix’s upcoming Resident Evil series has finally bagged itself a release date and will be coming to small screens on July 14th.

Based on Capcom’s long-running video game franchise, the series marks a departure from both the game and movie canon, following protagonist Jade Wesker, one of two daughters of the devious Albert Wesker, as she battles against a host of infected creatures and monsters. Interestingly, in a clear breakaway from previous narratives, the series will take place in the near future in 2036.

Resident Evil will star Ella Balinska, Tamara Smart, Siena Agudong, Adeline Rudolph, Paola Nuñez, Ahad Raza Mir, Connor Gosatti, and Lance Reddick. So far, only one cast member’s character has been confirmed, with Lance Reddick playing Albert Wesker.

Alongside the announcement, Netflix has also debuted new posters for the series. Naturally, these don’t give away too much at this stage, but it’s clear that the T-Virus and the Umbrella Corporation will play a part in the narrative, alongside something rather mysterious called “Joy”.

Resident Evil is only a few months away, but hopefully we’ll be a due a trailer sooner rather than later; we’re itching (pun intended) to get some more information on this new direction for the franchise! Be sure to let us know what you think in the comments down below.
