Netflix’s Resident Evil Series Trailer Teases Two Timelines, The Games Are Canon

Netflix has revealed the first teaser trailer for its live-action Resident Evil series. It stars Lance Reddick as Albert Wesker, one of the iconic main antagonists of the franchise. Tamara Smart and Ella Balinska portray the younger and older versions of Wesker’s daughter Jade, while Siena Agudong, Adeline Rudolph, Paola Nuñez, Ahad Raza Mir, Connor Gossatti and Turlough Convery are also in the cast in unrevealed roles.

The plot for the Resident Evil series is still a mystery, but it’s confirmed that the settings of the series will take place in two different timelines.

The first setting/timeline is set in 2022 and sees Jade moving with her father and her sister Billy to the futuristic New Raccoon City. Although her surroundings seem initially idyllic, Jade slowly becomes aware that her father and the Umbrella Corporation that run New Raccoon City are hiding dangerous secrets.

The second setting/timeline is set in 2036, follows Jade as she explores a post-apocalyptic London and fights for her survival against the bloodthirsty infected victims of a global outbreak caused by the Umbrella Corporation.

The showrunner is Andrew Dabb, who is best known for his work on CW’s Supernatural series. He writes and executive produces with Mary Leah Sutton. The series is produced by Constantin Film, with Robert Kulzer and Oliver Berben serving as executive producers for the studio.

In an interview with io9, Dabb said the games are canon to the Netflix series, and both timelines take place after the games.

He said:

“The games are the backstory. So everything that happened in the games happened in this world in the timeline that it happened. So if something happened in a game released in 1998, like Raccoon City being nuked, in this world, that happened also in 1998.

[Fans] want something that feels like it is a natural extension of the thing they already enjoy. And I would say the Marvel Universe does that very well. Most [Marvel] movies are not adapting a specific comic. They are borrowing here and there and they’re building something new. That is very much how we approach this.

The games are canon and, I’m sure we make mistakes, but we did not consciously violate any rules from the games. But at the same time, it’s not a direct adaptation of the games.”

All eight episodes of Resident Evil Season 1 will premiere on 14 July 2022 on Netflix.
