Lance Reddick leads the cast in the new “Resident Evil” series
Netflix’s upcoming live-action series “Resident Evil”, based on the popular video game of the same name, is finally making its debut. The streaming service has officially placed an order for an eight-hour season.
The plot will take place about three decades after the discovery of the T virus and the dark secrets of the Umbrella Corporation. Actor Lance Reddick, who has a long television career from TV series such as “The Wire”, “Bosch” and “Fringe”, will play Albert Wesker.
Actors Ella Balinska, Tamara Smart, Siena Agudong, Adeline Rudolph and Paola Nuñez will appear in the first season, but it is currently unclear which roles.

It’s also unclear when the much-anticipated live-action series will be ready for its premiere, but until then we’ll at least be able to satisfy our cravings somewhat with next month’s premiere of Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness on Netflix.
