On July 14, 2022, Netflix will release the first live-action episode of the Resident Evil Netflix series.
In July 2022, Netflix will premiere a live-action Resident Evil series. Introducing Resident Evil on Netflix, with a preview of the release date and a look at the upcoming development timeline. The Netflix original series Resident Evil is based on the Capcom video game of the same name. As of 1996, there have been multiple video game sequels, novels, and a popular movie franchise based on the series, which was first released in 1996.
At the moment, Netflix seems to be going all-in on Resident Evil with Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness, due out on the streaming service in July 2021, as well as this live-action series and at least two animation projects.
There was no formal announcement from Netflix until August 27, 2020, when the live-action series was finally announced. It was then that they began to spread information through the defunct NXonNetflix Twitter account.
The season of 8 x 1 hour episodes will be directed by Andrew Dabb (Supernatural), with Bronwen Hughes (The Walking Dead, The Journey Is the Destination) directing the first two episodes.

Episode one is titled “Welcome to New Racoon City” according to the script uploaded by NXonNetflix in August 2020. Andrew Dabb wrote the script while bronwen hughes directed the film (The Walking Dead).
The program director is Andrew Dabb. His previous work includes the CW’s Supernatural. This initially raised concerns about the tone of the first season, but it’s too early to tell at this point.
Resident Evil trailers on Netflix
Netflix released two trailers for the upcoming series on May 12, including one for the first episode.
It is clear from the first preview that the story will be divided into two halves. In London in 2022 and again fourteen years later in 2036, one is set for the year (more on that in a bit). You may hear a song called “I’d like to teach the world to sing (in perfect harmony)” playing in the background of the first trailer.
Among other things, it gives us our first glimpse of Wesker and many others.
There’s also a mutant spider and subterranean worm monster in the second trailer, which hasn’t been widely released. These monsters are shown in the second trailer.
Our first look at Resident Evil comes in the form of a sneak peek featuring a zombie Doberman plus two photos showing a stylized version of the teaser’s dog and the new series’ emblem before we delve deeper into the weeds.

Resident Evil Plot
According to Deadline, the show was originally mentioned in January of this year. According to a statement about the upcoming Resident Evil series, the following will happen:
“The drama series will explore the dark inner workings of the Umbrella Corporation and the new world order caused by the T-Virus outbreak. While the project is in the early stages, the series is expected to incorporate all of the hallmarks of Resident Evil. , including the action sequences and the Easter eggs.”
The Netflix media site posted an official plot summary for the series in early 2020 (although it has since been removed). This is what it said in the summary:
“The town of Clearfield, MD has long been in the shadow of three seemingly unrelated giants: the Umbrella Corporation, the decommissioned Greenwood Asylum, and Washington, DC Today, twenty-six years after the discovery of the T-Virus, secrets held by the three will begin to be revealed at the first signs of outbreak.”
Our best guess is that the story is split into two distinct timelines. Among these is the case of Jade and Billie Wesker, two 14-year-old sisters who recently moved to New Raccoon City. It is possible that he is keeping sinister secrets from his children that could spell doom for all mankind.
More than a decade in the future, there are only 15 million people left in the world, and the T-virus has infected more than 6 billion animals and humans. Jade, thirty-one years old, is the center of this story.
What is the relationship of the Netflix series with games? For us, games are our backstory. the showrunner, andres dabbensures that “everything that happens in games exists in this world.”
On top of that, Andrew Dabb confirmed in an interview with EW that we can expect to see a resurrected version of Wesker in the show’s timelines. However, “the explanation of Wesker’s behavior and how he’s still alive go hand in hand,” he said, “I don’t want to reveal too much.”
How far along is the first season of Resident Evil?
Initial pre-production was scheduled to begin in April 2020, with the main filming period taking place between June and October of that year. COVID-19 wiped out all 2020 production schedules, so those plans were scrapped as well. A new date of February 2021 was also reported, however it has since been revised.
Filming for Resident Evil took place between September 8 and December 14, 2021, according to ProductionWeekly. The IMDb production status was updated to “Post-Production” on December 14, according to what ProductionWeekly had previously stated.
