Netflix promises that the series will “redefine the legendary horror franchise.” They’re also promising the first teaser trailer tomorrow, May 12th, so stay tuned for that!
“The all-new series expansion brings the best of the Resident Evil DNA forward – bad-ass heroines, insane creatures (some new/some familiar), a battle for survival and of course, a deep mystery to unravel. Andrew Dabb (Supernatural) expands the directions with fresh storytelling, bone chilling horror and an action-packed spectacle perfect for summer binging.”
