Resident Evil: Live-Action Netflix Show Gets July Release Date

Netflix’s live-action Resident Evil series is on its way soon, unleashing the T-virus on July 14.

Resident Evil introduces Jade Wesker, a survivor whose surname should be familiar to fans of the video games. Here’s the show’s official synopsis:

“Year 2036 – 14 years after a deadly virus caused a global apocalypse, Jade Wesker fights for survival in a world overrun by the blood-thirsty infected and insane creatures. In this absolute carnage, Jade is haunted by her past in New Raccoon City, by her father’s chilling connections to the Umbrella Corporation but mostly by what happened to her sister, Billie.”

The core Resident Evil cast was revealed back in 2021, and we know Lance Reddick will be playing long-time Resident Evil character, Albert Wesker. Jade and Billie are the daughters of Albert, and will seemingly be the show’s key characters.

Along with the Resident Evil release date, Netflix has also released three new teaser posters (below), and they might just give us a better idea of what the show will be about.

A new logo and a hint of the T-virus (which turns people into zombies, causing the show’s apocalypse) are enough to get Resident Evil fans salivating… but it’s the third image that really piques our interest.

Debuting a pill called ‘Joy’ it looks as though the nefarious Umbrella Corporation has been working on a new line of medication. The pill itself is covered in blood – always a good sign that things haven’t exactly worked out. But even the pill’s name itself could be a hint. A new anti-depressant, perhaps?

How that ties into the T-virus and Umbrella’s other schemes remains to be seen. And we have no idea which timeline in which we’ll see Joy make its debut…

A previous announcement from Netflix confirmed that we’ll see the story pan out across two different timelines – Jade and Billie’s childhoods, as well as decades after the viral outbreak of the T-virus.

“In the first timeline, fourteen-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 timeline comes after the global apocalypse…

 

“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.”

Resident Evil stars Lance Reddick as Albert Wesker alongside Ella Balinska, Tamara Smart, Siena Agudong, Adeline Rudolph, Paola Nuñez, Ahad Raza Mir, Connor Gossatti, and Turlough Convery.

Andrew Dabb is on board as showrunner, writing the eight-episode series alongside Mary Leah Sutton.
