Resident Evil Showrunner explains why the series opens so close to the recent movie

The next resident evil the series in Netflix has just launched some new and exciting advances this week and comicbook.com turned out to be one of the few lucky to speak recently with the Andrew Dabb showrunner. The series will officially premiere on July 14, and that is relatively close to when the last film of the franchise reaches theaters. _RESident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City was launched last fall and received a bad response, so I would think that people behind the series could be a bit worried, but it seems that both projects developed simultaneously.

“They developed almost simultaneously,” said Dabb, speaking to a media group. «And in a way that was very liberating for us, because the first thing you will see from fans is that they want a direct adaptation. Well, the good news is that they have it. It is a very well done adaptation of the first ». two games. So, for us, it was like, ‘Ok, well, they are doing that, let us go and forge our own path ‘».

“Then, it is not a coincidence, it was designed that way,” Dabb added. «And the idea is that, you know, these two things can exist next to each other, again, because everything goes to Raccoon City_ is exploring and later films explore are things that happen in our world. That does not mean that we are going to share actors and things like that, that becomes more complicated. Obviously, his wesker is not the young Lance Reddick. But, you know, that was a choice that Constantin made and to develop it to the maximum on the page ».

Netflix describes the series as follows: «Year 2036: 14 years after a deadly virus caused a global apocalypse, Jade Wesker struggles to survive in a world invaded by insane and infected creatures thirsty for blood. In this absolute butcher shop, Jade is persecuted by her past in New Raccoon City, by her father’s chilling connections with the Umbrella corporation, but especially for what she happened to her sister, Billie.
