First Resident Evil Netflix series trailer ahead of July 14 premiere

Netflix announced a couple of months ago that the Resident Evil series it is producing in collaboration with Capcom will premiere on its platform on July 14. When it unveiled the release date of its first season we still hadn’t seen anything of this ambitious project that will tell the story of the Wesker family from two timelines, one in the present and one in the future, but that lack of images has ended today with the release of the first trailer for the series.

Two intertwining timelines: 2022 and 2036.

“In the quiet New Raccoon City nothing ever happens,” reads the description of the powerful promotional video with which the Resident Evil series for Netflix has been seen for the first time. In this trailer it is clear the tone that the adaptation will have: on the one hand we will live the first stages of the outbreak of virus T in the facilities of Umbrella Corporation, events that will happen in the year 2022, and on the other hand we will witness an apocalyptic world, already in the year 2036, when society has been decimated by the virus and the survivors have to face hordes of infected.

The protagonists of these timelines will be, as we said, the members of the Wesker family. The father, Albert Wesker (played by Lance Reddick) moves with his two daughters to New Raccoon City: Jade is an ordinary girl who makes friends easily, while Billie is antisocial and has an anger management problem. This dynamic will be key in the series, a typical love-hate rivalry between family members. Actresses Ella Balinska, Tamara Smart, Siena Agudong, Adeline Rudolph and Paola Nunez will play the roles of the Wesker sisters in each of the timelines.

Resident Evil will premiere on Netflix on July 14.
