Netflix today confirmed that the live-action series “Resident Evil” will be streaming in 2022 and will have no connection to the film currently in US theaters.

To verify:

And this one is going to hurt too much. After 3 decades since the discovery of the T virus, there are still Umbrella Corporation secrets to reveal.

My new live-action series, Resident Evil, is also coming in 2022.

Enjoy watching:

Almost three decades after the discovery of the T virus, a new epidemic reveals the darkest secrets of the Umbrella Corporation.

In the first timeline, teenage sisters Jade and Billie Wesker move to Raccoon City. A manufactured and corporate city, but the more time they spend there, the more they realize that the city is more than it looks and that their father may be hiding dark secrets. Secrets that can destroy the world.

The second timeline will be set for a decade in the future: there are less than 15 million people on the planet. And more than six billion monsters – people and animals infected with the T. Jade virus, now in their thirties, struggle to survive in this new world, while her past – about her sister, her father and her ‘herself – continues to haunt her.

Bronwen Hughes (“The Walking Dead”) will direct the first two episodes.

“For all fans of ‘Resident Evil’, including those joining us for the first time, this series will be full of old acquaintances and some things (crazy and bloodthirsty) that you have never seen before,” said showrunner Andrew Dabb (‘Supernatural’), who will also be executive producer and writer for the series.

Eight episodes have been ordered for the first season.

Remember, the reboot “Resident Evil: Welcome to Racoon City” opens in national theaters on December 2nd.
