Resident Evil live-action series coming to Netflix"When the Wesker kids move to New Raccoon City, the secrets they uncover might just be the end of everything."
Following rumors in January 2019 and a leak in February 2020, Netflix has confirmed it is developing a live-action series based on Capcom‘s Resident Evil series.
“When the Wesker kids move to New Raccoon City, the secrets they uncover might just be the end of everything,” Netflix said on Twitter. “Resident Evil, a new live-action series based on Capcom’s legendary survival horror franchise, is coming to Netflix.”
Here is a summary of the story, via The Hollywood Reporter:
The Netflix series will tell its new story across two timelines. In the first, 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. The second, more than a decade into the future sees less than 15 million people left on Earth. And more than 6 billion monsters — people and animals infected with the T-virus. Jade, now 30, struggles to survive in this new world, while the secrets from her past—about her sister, her father and herself—continue to haunt her.
