A trailer for the series resident Evil by Netflix
Set both in the present day, in New Raccoon City in South Africa, and in 2036, the series resident Evil centers on Jade Wesker as she struggles to survive in a world overrun by zombies and must come to terms with her past — and what has become of her sister, Billie, 14 years after the zombie apocalypse began. Jade and Billie are the daughters of Albert Wesker, played by Lance Reddick in the Netflix series, who serves at the whim of his superiors at the Umbrella Corporation.
As seen in Netflix’s first trailer, there’s one of the zombies, complete with bloody violence, the looming threat of Umbrella, and brief hints of the eccentric side of resident Evil.
In any case, fans of the franchise do not seem at all satisfied. On the English trailer, there are 10,000 likes and 22,000 dislikes so far. On the French trailer, it’s 296 likes and 342 dislikes. The problem is that the series doesn’t quite feel like it’s about the games universe.
There will be eight episodes in total, they will be available on July 14 on Netflix.
