New details have been released about the live-action Resident Evil TV series that is in the works for Netflix, as it will be set in New Raccoon City and star the family of series villain Albert Wesker. There have been rumors regarding the production of the series circulating over the past year, including reports of it being shut down due to COVID-19. Written by Supernatural executive producer/co-showrunner Andrew Dabb and produced by Constantin Film, which is behind the Resident Evil movies, the series will feature a brand new story across two timelines.

The series is described as a brand-new story spread across two different timelines: “In the first timeline, 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, well over a decade 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. Jade, now thirty, struggles to survive in this New World, while the secrets from her past about her sister, her father and herself continue to haunt her.”
