The show, which is set to debut on the streaming platform on July 14, is set in New Racoon City and will feature the Umbrella Corporation from the video game series.
The teaser trailer gives us our first look at “New Racoon City 2022” as well as a title card which reads “London 2036” which suggests the show will follow the characters throughout the fall of society following the outbreak. The Umbrella Corporation logo can also be seen throughout the trailer.
According to a Netflix synopsis released in 2020, the show will feature “the Wesker kids” as they uncover secrets inside of New Raccoon City. Albert Wesker is one of the primary antagonists in the Resident Evil games.
“When the Wesker kids move to New Raccoon City, the secrets they uncover might just be the end of everything,” it says.
In December, Netflix released a very brief teaser video for the series. The short clip shows Cerberus, the iconic zombie dog from the series, walking towards the camera.
As the dog turns its head, the red lighting exposes the rotting flesh on the side of its head. This is then quickly followed by the official logo for the new series.
Netflix has produced dozens of video game adaptations over the years, most notably The Witcher, Sonic the Hedgehog, Castlevania and a CGI Resident Evil movie. It is also currently working on movies based on two Ubisoft properties: The Division and Beyond Good & Evil, as well as an Assassin’s Creed series.
