Netflix is offering up a first look at Resident Evil‘s battle for survival in a teaser trailer for the upcoming live-action series, which premieres with all eight episodes on Thursday, July 14.
The drama, from showrunner Andrew Dabb (Supernatural), picks up in 2036, 14 years after a deadly virus caused a global apocalypse as “Jade Wesker fights for survival in a world overrun by the blood-thirsty infected and insane creatures,” per the official synopsis. “In this absolute carnage, Jade is haunted by her past in New Raccoon City, by her father’s chilling connections to the Umbrella Corporation but mostly by what happened to her sister, Billie.”
Lance Reddick (Bosch, Fringe) stars as Albert Wesker, alongside Ella Balinska (Charlie’s Angels), Tamara Smart (The Worst Witch), Siena Agudong (No Good Nick), Adeline Rudolph (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina) and Paola Nuñez (The Purge). Additional cast includes Turlough Convery (Ready Player One), Ahad Raza Mir (Ehd-e-Wafa) and Connor Gossatti (3rd Night).
