Netflix Announces Resident Evil Series Focused On Wesker Family

Netflix has greenlit a live-action adaptation of Capcom’s Resident Evil series, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The official @NXOnNetflix Twitter account shared an image of the first episode’s script and a short synopsis:

“When the Wesker kids move to New Raccoon City, the secrets they uncover might just be the end of everything. Resident Evil, a new live action series based on Capcom’s legendary survival horror franchise, is coming to Netflix.”

The show will feature a split timeline, the first showing 14-year-old sisters Jade and Billie Wesker as they first arrive to New Raccoon City, and the second taking place years in the future, after the T-virus has wrecked havoc around the world.

In a follow-up tweet, Netflix added that the first season will consist of eight one-hour episodes “helmed by Andrew Dabb” (co-showrunner of Supernatural). Bronwen Hughes will direct the first two episodes.

Resident Evil on Netflix will follow two other Netflix video game adaptations: Castlevania and The Witcher.
