Resident Evil Live-Action Netflix Series Gets Release Date And First Poster

Resident Evil Live-Action Netflix Series Gets Release Date And First Poster

Later this year, 'evil will evolve' on Netflix with a brand-new Resident Evil series.

Netflix has revealed an official release date for its upcoming live-action Resident Evil series.

CAPCOM's iconic video game franchise has been adapted for the screen many times over the years, whether it's Milla Jovovich's run of movies, animated efforts like Degeneration and Infinite Darkness, or last year's Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City.

Later this year, 'evil will evolve' on the streaming platform with a brand-new Resident Evil series.

As well as announcing a global release date of July 14, Netflix also dropped three teaser posters: one shows a new logo with blood splatters on a yellow background; another shows the logo with a few bubbles of blood and a vial of blood that's tested positive for the T-virus pathogen; and the third features a pill marked with the word 'joy' and a logo resembling the franchise's nefarious Umbrella Corporation.

We don't have many details about the show at the time of writing, but Netflix has said it will boast 'the best of the Resident Evil DNA'.

The new series will boast the best of Resident Evil's DNA.

"Building on one of the most popular, best selling survival horror video games of all time, Resident Evil will tell a brand new story across two timelines," Netflix explained in an earlier news release.

"In the first timeline, 14-year-old sisters Jade and Billie Wesker are moved to New Raccoon City. A manufactured, corporate town, forced on them right as adolescence is in full swing.

"But the more time they spend there, the more they come to realise that the town is more than it seems and their father may be concealing dark secrets. Secrets that could destroy the world.

"Cut to the second timeline, well over a decade into the future: there are less than fifteen million people left on Earth. And more than six billion monsters - people and animals infected with the T-virus.

"Jade, now thirty, struggles to survive in this New World, while the secrets from her past - about her sister, her father and herself - continue to haunt her."

Resident Evil hits Netflix on July 14.
