It’s hard to think of a pop culture franchise that has stretched as far as demon resident. Since Capcom released the first video game in 1996, the series has gone through an endless list of transformations. There have been mainline titles, countless spin-off games, movies that barely relate to the original, anime adaptations, novelizations, and comics, just to name a few. But this summer, Netflix is entering this well-trodden arena with its second take on this franchise.

What’s new on Netflix? Resident Evil On?
You have played the games. you win tall lady. You have followed Milla Jovovich through six films. Now it’s time to explore this universe once again.
live action demonic resident The series takes place in two timelines: 2022 and 2036. This earlier timeline focuses on 14-year-old half-sisters Jade (Tamara Smart) and Billie (Siena Agudong). When their father Albert Wesker (Lance Reddick) took them to New Raccoon City, he promised that their lives would become a heavenly utopia. How could it not be so when the Umbrella Corporation is working so closely with the city? But the more Jade and Billie learn about their father’s work and the Umbrella Corporation, the bleaker their future becomes.
Speaking of 2036, it’s the apocalypse as usual. In this timeline, Jade Wesker (Ella Balinska) is one of the 15 million humans left in this world destroyed by zombies. Her only goal is to survive. But when the mysteries surrounding her sister and her father draw her in, she may just discover some secrets that were never meant to see the light of day.
is the new evi residentl Connected to video games?
series creator Andrew Dabb confirmed to EW that this new series will use the same mythology as the games. “The games are our backstory. Everything that happens in games exists in this world,” Dabb said.
That means this world may one day include 2021 Resident Evil: Town: “We may not get there until season 5, but it’s in our world,” Dabb said. “As we move forward and talk about the scripts for Season 2, the town is a resource that we can draw on.”
After the Jovovich movies took the source material and got away with it, it’s exciting to know that we’re finally getting a more loyal adaptation. He is also one who looks quite badass. But there is one glaring problem with this reboot: Dr. Albert Wesker.
Dr. Wesker is a big part of the demonic resident games. appeared in the first demonic resident as a captain of the Raccoon City Police Department’s Special Tactics and Rescue Service (STAR) unit, and it was later revealed that he was also an investigator. He is considered one of the main villains of this franchise and has appeared or been mentioned in 11 demonic resident games to date. Dr. Wesker is normally the one pulling the strings behind the scenes. He comes from the Thanos school of thought, believing that the mass extinction of humanity would be a cleanup and that modern humans have evolved as much as they can. That’s why they need a little chemically induced push. This mad scientist has done a lot in this universe, from faking his death to finally gaining his own superhuman abilities. I only know that until he was defeated by Chris Redfield in resident Bad 5, Dr. Wesker’s arrival on the scene always spelled trouble.
So what is the problem? We don’t know how Jade and Billie fit into this narrative. We know that in the games, Dr. Wesker has an illegitimate son. He was also the head of an experiment that tried to advance the human race using child subjects, known as Project W. Each of those 13 subjects took his last name, making them his children in a deeply disturbing way. But none of those “kids” were named Jade or Bille.
According to Dabb, there will be an answer for everything. “If you know the games, Wesker is dead. He got blown up by a rocket launcher into a volcano, how I think we all want to go,” Dabb said. “I don’t want to give too much away, but I will say that the explanation of why Wesker is the way he is and how he is still alive go hand in hand.”
It is demonic resident Connected with the movies and anime?
The new Netflix series will not be connected to the cinematic films, aside from the fact that both universes revolve around zombies and the Umbrella Corporation. What’s going on infinite darkness?
Because the anime series takes place in the video game timeline and the live action series is based on that same timeline, it is safe to say that infinite darkness it’s canon. But that doesn’t mean you have to play all nine main games and watch this anime adaptation to understand demonic resident the show. As long as you have a healthy appreciation for zombies and monsters, you should be golden.
