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.

Recall that Netflix will also release an animated series based on the franchise, entitled ‘Resident Evil: In the Absolute Dark’, which will take place a few years after the events of the game ‘Resident Evil 4’.

“In 2006, there were traces of unauthorized access to the President’s secret files found on the White House network. US Federal Agent Leon S. Kennedy is part of the group invited to the White House to investigate the incident, but when the lights suddenly go out, Leon and the SWAT team are forced to shoot down a horde of mysterious zombies. .

Meanwhile, TerraSave staff member Claire Redfield discovers a mysterious image drawn by a young man in a country she has visited while providing support for refugees. Haunted by this drawing which seems to be the victim of a viral infection, Claire begins her own investigation.

The next morning, Claire goes to the White House to ask for the construction of a wellness center. There, she has the chance to find Leon and takes the opportunity to show him the drawing of the boy. Leon seems to feel some kind of connection between the White House zombie outbreak and the bizarre cartoon, but he tells Claire it’s unrelated and leaves. Over time, these two zombie outbreaks in distant lands will lead to events that will shake the nation. “
