Anyone who has played the Resident Evil video games (or watched the movies) knows all about those virus-infected dogs they have roaming around. Today, the first season of a Resident Evil television series was released through the Netflix streaming service, and of course the dogs had to be included on this show as well. In the clip embedded above, you can see one of those dogs chasing a couple of the show’s characters around.
In this Resident Evil series, events playing out in 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.
The show stars Lance Reddick (The Guest) as Albert Wesker, Ella Balinska (Charlie’s Angels) as the adult Jade Wesker, Tamara Smart (Artemis Fowl) as teenage Jade Wesker, Siena Agudong (Upside-Down Magic) as Billie Wesker, Paola Nuñez (Bad Boys for Life) as Albert Wesker’s associate Evelyn Marcus, Ahad Raza Mir (Hum Tum) as Jade’s husband Arj, Connor Gosatti (3rd Night) as teenager Simon, and Adeline Rudolph (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina) as the adult Billie Wesker.

I’ll be watching the show at some point, even though our own Alex Maidy wasn’t very impressed by the first four episodes. You can read his 4/10 review at THIS LINK.
