The upcoming Resident Evil The Netflix series just released some exciting new trailers this week and ComicBook.com happened to be one of the lucky few to talk to showrunner Andrew Dabb recently. The series will be officially released on July 14, and that is relatively close when the last franchise movie was released in cinemas. Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City was was released last fall and met with a sad response, so you might think the people behind the series may be a little worried, but they seem to have developed both projects at the same time.
“They developed almost simultaneously,” Dump told a media team. “And in a way that was very liberating for us, because the number one thing you’ll see from the fans is that they want a direct adjustment. Well, the good news is that they have it. It’s a very well done adaptation of the first two games. And so for us, it was like, “Okay, well, they do that, they let us go and chart our own path.”
“Well, it’s not a coincidence, it was kind of designed that way,” Dabb added. “And the idea is that, you know, these two things can exist side by side, again, because everything Welcome to Raccoon City is exploration and the next exploration movies are things that happen in our world. This does not mean that we will share actors and things like that, it becomes more complicated. Obviously, their Wesker is not the young Lance Reddick. But, you know, that was a choice made by Constantin to further develop the page. “
Netflix describes the series as follows: “Year 2036 – 14 years after a deadly virus caused a global revelation, Jade Wesker is fighting for survival in a world flooded with bloodthirsty infected and crazy creatures. In this absolute carnage, Jade “She is haunted by her past in New Raccoon City, because of her father ‘s creepy connections with the Umbrella Corporation but mainly because of what happened to her sister, Billie.”
of Netflix Resident Evil The series will include eight one-hour episodes and will be an executive production by Andrew Dabb, Mary Leah Sutton, Robert Kulzer and Oliver Berben.
