Netflix’s upcoming Resident Evil series has an official release date, and it’s sooner than you might think!
The synopsis for the series reads as follows, and it’s suitably bonkers.
“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 switch. 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.”
Will This Live Action Resident Evil Be Good This Time?
The last time that Resident Evil got an adaptation, it wasn’t exactly well received. Resident Evil: Welcome To Raccoon City has 31% on Rotten Tomatoes, was critically and commercially maligned and was hated by fans and non-fans alike. There’s hope with this Netflix series that we get an actual good adaptation, but I’m not going to get my hopes up.
The anticipated Resident Evil series will arrive on Netflix on July 14th.
Netflix recently announced that it’s cracking down on password sharing between friends. It’s also raising the price of its subscription tiers in the UK.
