“Nothing eventful ever happens in the peaceful New Raccoon City,” the tagline for Netflix’s Resident Evil states. Yeah, right.
Resident Evil will deliver on the zombie-infested terror of the video games, with no shortage of gruesome carnage, the lurking danger of Umbrella and fleeting teases of Resident Evil’s quirkier side, as shown in Netflix’s first teaser trailer for the television series.
The show premieres on Netflix on July 14.
Set in present-day and 2036, Resident Evil follows Jade Wesker as she struggles to survive in a zombie-infested world. And zombies aren’t the only problem. Jade has to face her father’s connection to the Umbrella Corporation and deal with the fate of her sister, Billie.
The cast includes Lance Reddick, Ella Balinska, Tamara Smart, Siena Agudong, Adeline Rudolph, Paola Nuñez, Ahad Raza Mir, Connor Gossatti and Turlough Convery.
