Good news Resident Evil fans, we finally have more information on Netflix’s upcoming live-action series! Evil has evolved in this unnerving show that will redefine the legendary horror franchise. Those who have been eagerly waiting to see what will happen next in the series don’t have to wait much longer as the show will drop on Netflix this July.

Set in 2036, the new Resident Evil series is live-action, setting itself apart from Netflix’s previous series Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness, a horror anime. Fourteen years after a deadly virus caused a global apocalypse, Jade Wesker tries to fight for survival in a world overrun by the infected.

Here is the official logline, courtesy of Netflix:

"Year 2036 – 14 years after a deadly virus caused a global apocalypse, Jade Wesker fights for survival in a world overrun by the blood-thirsty infected and insane creatures. 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."
