Resident Evil is bringing the monsters.
The Netflix series–a small-screen adaptation of the always-popular Capcom video game–lands on the streamer next month, and the official trailer is now here. Check out the video–courtesy of comicbook.com–on this page.
The eight-episode first season–which debuts July 14–is set in the year 2036, and it’s been 14 years since a deadly virus caused a global apocalypse. In this setting, Jade Wesker “fights for survival in a world overrun by bloodthirsty, insane creatures,” according to the synopsis.
In addition, Jade is haunted “by her past in New Raccoon City, by her father’s connections to the Umbrella Corporation and by what happened to her sister Billie.”
Showrunner Andrew Dabb said he already has an idea of how the series will end. “The truth of the matter is, we have an ending,” he said. “And we can progress fast or slow toward that ending. The longer we’re on the air, the more fun stuff we can do.”
Dabb added that “you have to start this not with an ending carved in stone–because you have to discover ideas along the way–but with an idea of where you’re going with the characters.”
The series stars Ella Balinska, Tara Smart, Siena Agudong, Adeline Rudolph, Paola Nunez, Ahad Raza Mir, Connor Gossati, Turlough Convery and Lance Reddick as Albert Wesker.
