The Umbrella Corporation returns in Netflix’s Resident Evil series premiering on July 14th, and inspired by Capcom’s massive franchise. The series was originally announced in 2020 and will tell a new Resident Evil story across two timelines, following the character Jade Wesker as her family moves to New Raccoon City and, over a decade later, the resulting apocalypse from the T-virus infection. Visit the Netflix Resident Evil page for more information, and you can also find the show on Instagram @ResidentEvilNetflix.

Also released today are 3 new teaser posters:

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.

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. 

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.
