It’s been a while since we’ve heard of the Resident Evil series live on Netflix. The last time was in December when we were treated to a juicy shot of Cerberus, Resident Evil’s unofficial mascot. Prior to that, we received an overall plot for the show, and that’s about it.

Now we finally get some details, starting with a release date. Netflix’s Resident Evil will start streaming the 14th of July.

“When the Wesker children move to New Raccoon City, the secrets they uncover may well be the end of everything,” reads the show’s description. The eight-episode program will explore the lives of the Wesker children, Jade and Billie, who struggle to survive the early days of the epidemic, then the greater zombie apocalypse as humanity descends into anarchy.


Albert Wesker will be played by the incomparable Lance Reddick. Ella Balinska, Tamara Smart, Siena Agudong, Adeline Rudolph, Paola Nuñez and most recently Ahad Raza Mir have also been confirmed for the series, although Netflix has not announced which roles they will play. The show is produced by German studio Constantin Film, which recently made Resident Evil: Welcome To Raccoon City.

We’re still a bit at a loss on how Wesker ended up with kids since they’re never discussed in Capcom video games, but Netflix still has several months to fill in the blanks.

In the meantime, Capcom has promised Resident Evil fans that a next-gen update will arrive for Resident Evil 2, 3, and 7 “later this year.” The upgrade will include “visual enhancements” for all three games as well as the PC versions, though Capcom hasn’t specified exactly what those enhancements might be. We’re assuming 4K quality and 60fps performance modes, which seems to be what every other game gets. Best of all, upgrades will be free for anyone who already owns the PS4 or Xbox One versions of all three games.
