Netflix’s home of all things geek – confirmed today that a scripted live-action series inspired by the massive Resident Evil franchise is coming to Netflix.

Based on one of the most popular, best-selling video games of all time, Resident Evil will tell a brand-new story across two timelines:

In the first, fourteen-year-old sisters Jade and Billie Wesker are moved to New Raccoon City. A manufactured, corporate town forced on them right as adolescence is in full swing. But the more time they spend there, the more they come to realize that the town is more than it seems and their father may be concealing dark secrets. Secrets that could destroy the world.

Cut to the second timeline, just two decades into the future: there are less than fifteen million people left on Earth. And more than six billion monsters — people and animals infected with the T-virus, turning them into bloodthirsty creatures. Jade, now thirty, struggles to survive in this New World, while the secrets from her past – about her sister, her father and herself – continue haunt her.

EPISODES:  8 x 1-hour episodes

CO-PRODUCTION: Netflix and Constantin Film

SHOWRUNNER/EXECUTIVE PRODUCER/WRITER: Andrew Dabb (Supernatural)

DIRECTOR: The 8 x 1 hour episode season will be helmed by Andrew Dabb (Supernatural), Bronwen Hughes (The Walking Dead, Better Call Saul) will direct the first episode.
