Resident Evil trailer is here. Netflix has unveiled two teaser trailers for its live-action series Resident Evil to pique fan curiosity. The first begins in the current year when sisters Jade and Billie Wesker move to the corporate town of New Racoon City to be with their father, Albert Wesker, a scientist involved in some shady experiments. The action then shifts to London in 2036, where the Wesker daughters are trying to stay alive in the midst of a zombie apocalypse.
The second Resident Evil teaser trailer introduces us to multinational conglomerate Umbrella Corporation working on Joy, “an antidepressant that cures OCD, relieves anxiety, and increases focus.” The only problem is that it contains the Tyrant Virus, also known as the T-Virus, which essentially created many of the monsters seen in the Resident Evil game. Then we see terrifying creatures – from zombies to a giant spider – wreaking havoc while the human race struggles to survive.
The teaser ends with the chilling line “So we know what the warning label says,” underscoring the Umbrella Corporation’s nefarious motives.

While both Resident Evil teasers are gory and disturbing, they don’t really offer many references to the franchise as we know it. This isn’t too surprising, however, since Andrew Dabb, the showrunner of the live-action Netflix series, never wanted it to be a “definitive” version of the Resident Evil brand. While discussing the Resident Evil story, he said that the Netflix series will feature a new storyline unrelated to the Resident Evil: Welcome to Racoon City featured in the 2021 film adaptation and the Netflix animated miniseries Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness has to do.
Dabb told IGN, “I don’t think there’s going to be a definitive adaptation of Resident Evil. I don’t see our show as final either. Resident Evil is too big to be defined by just one thing.”
Resident Evil’s cast includes Seina Agudong as Billie, Tamara Smart as Jade and Lance Reddick as Wesker.
Resident Evil will be available on Netflix on July 14, with all episodes releasing on release date.
