Resident Evil Plot Overview
Unlike past adaptations, the Netflix series is set in its own universe where the main plot is split into two separate timelines – one existing in 2022 and the other in 2038.
The past timeline follows two 14-year-old twins, Billie and Jade, who were conceived under suspicious circumstances with Dr. Albert Wesker as their father.
Wesker takes a management position at the Umbrella Corporation which uproots his family to live in New Raccoon City.
The twins will learn the dark secrets of their past after moving to the planned community, while Wesker is concerned about the outbreak of the T-virus.
The 2038 timeline features the devastating effects the T-virus has wreaked on civilization, reducing the population to 15 million refugees and six billion T-virus infected “zeroes”.

Possibilities of Season 2
resident Evil was not billed as a miniseries or limited series, meaning its story could continue into a second season.
Netflix will likely wait for the Season 1 ratings and reviews to come in before the platform makes a decision on whether to greenlight Season 2 or cancel it.
Showrunner Andrew Dabb has been tight-lipped about his plans for Season 2, but acknowledged the possibility of a continuation to TheGamer with a plot option:
“If we want to put a giant lady vampire in Season 2, we can. I’m not saying we’re going to do it, but it’s an option.
