Netflix has dropped a featurette for Resident Evil, the forthcoming action-horror drama, featuring lots of new footage from the series as well as behind-the-scenes videos. It will be available for streaming on July 14.
The video features commentary from the cast and executive producers as they talk about the characters, the rich storyline, and the terrifying creatures that will be featured in the series. They also tease Easter Eggs that pay tribute to its video game source material.
Check out the new Resident Evil featurette below:
“Set in the 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,” reads the synopsis. “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 live-action Resident Evil series hails from Supernatural executive producer Andrew Dabb, who is serving as a writer, executive producer, and showrunner. It will reportedly be set between two timelines featuring the same protagonist. It stars John Wick star Lance Reddick as Albert Wesker, the villainous head of Umbrella Corporation.
Additional cast includes Ella Balinska (Charlie’s Angels), Adeline Rudolph (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina), Tamara Smart (A Babysitter’s Guide to Monster Hunting), Siena Agudong (No Good Nick), and Paola Nuñez (Bad Boys for Life) along with Ahad Raza Mir, Connor Gossatti, and Turlough Convery.
The eight-episode series is also written and executive produced by Mary Leah Sutton, with Constantin Film’s Robert Kulzer and Oliver Berben set as executive producers. Constantin Film, the studio behind the blockbuster film franchise, is the project’s studio with CEO Martin Moszkowicz also producing.
