The plot of the TV series explored

The upcoming American TV series doesn’t have any connection with the film series of the franchise. However, video games of the franchise serve as the backstory of the series.

The TV series has two storylines set in different timelines- 2022 and 2036. The former timeline follows Jade and Billie, the daughters of Albert Wesker, unleashing the dark secrets of Umbrella Corporation. In contrast, 2036 sees the grown-up daughters of Albert getting stuck in the world where streets are filled with Zombies.

Furthermore, the TV series will be set in the world that was destroyed in the video games back in 1998. Even though the show has several similarities with video games, it will feature a storyline that we haven’t seen in any video game or previous live-action adaptation.
