Netflix has released a couple of teaser trailers for its upcoming live-action Resident Evil series – check them out below.

Following the reveal of the show in August 2020, the streamer shared the first trailer for the live-action series based on the video game franchise earlier this week. Inside that trailer was a QR code that, when scanned, took fans to a second trailer.

Scheduled to hit Netflix on July 14, the show will tell an entirely new story in the franchise spread across two timelines, centering around the character Albert Wesker ( Juan Wick ‘s Lance Reddick) and his two children, Jade and Billie.

A synopsis for the series reads: “In the first timeline, 14-year-old sisters Jade and Billie Wesker move to New Raccoon City. A manufactured corporate town, forced on them just as adolescence is in full swing. But the more time they spend there, the more they realize that the town is more than meets the eye and that their father may be hiding dark secrets. Secrets that could destroy the world.

“Cut to the second timeline, more than a decade in the future: there are fewer than fifteen million people left on Earth. And more than six billion monsters: people and animals infected with the T virus. Jade, now thirty years old, struggles to survive in this New World, while the secrets of her past, about her sister, her father and her herself, they continue to persecute her.”

Andrew Dab ( Supernatural ) is the series’ showrunner, while Bronwen Hughes ( The Walking Dead ) is serving as executive producer and will direct the first two episodes.

In addition to Reddick, the show stars Ella Balinska, Tamara Smart, Siena Agudong, Adeline Rudolph, and Paola Nunez.

A reboot of the film titled Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City was released last year starring Kaya Scodelario, Hannah John-Kamen and Robbie Amell.

In a three-star review, NME Nick Levine wrote: “ Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City succeeds on its own modest terms. Your nerves will never be shattered, but you will leave breathless and jumping enough to justify the price of the ticket.”
