Resident Evil Netflix series gets release date

It’s official. The zombies are back and set for a summer release…

Mark the 14th of July 2022 on your calendar. That’s the day all hell will break loose and you’ll be able to sink your teeth into an all-new TV series take on the Resident Evil universe via Netflix.

The Netflix Geeked Twitter account revealed the date as part of a new poster.

This new series – having previously been teased – is a new spin-off completely separate from the popular (and still ongoing) movie series. Focusing on a deadly virus which has caused a global apocalypse (tell us about it…) the events take place in the year 2036, approximately 14 years after the outbreak.

Jade Wesker – daughter of the evil Albert Wesker who got the world of Resident Evil into this mess – is left to pick up the pieces and fight to survive in one strand of the story, with her and her sister Billie also appearing years earlier as they learn of their father’s ill-doings…

It’s just one of a whole slew of transmedia ventures as more and more much-loved game series are getting realised for real.

With a series of games that have been loved by millions and a movie series that just won’t quit, expectations are high. We’re counting the days…
