The first trailer for Netflix’s live-action Resident Evil series shows a horrific version of the series’ famous zombie dogs.
Following the recently released Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City, Netflix’s series will be the next in a long line of TV and movie adaptations based on the video game franchise of the same name.
Welcome to Raccoon City, starring Kaya Scodelario and Robbie Amell as Claire and Chris Redfield, Hannah John-Kamen as Jill Valentine, and Avan Jogia as Leon S. Kennedy, and Tom Hopper as antagonist Albert Wesker brings many Resident Evil characters to the big screen.

While there are few specifics about the Netflix series, it will follow the children of villain Albert Wesker rather than regular Resident Evil heroes like Jill Valentine or the Redfield siblings. The series will follow Jade and Billie Wesker, newcomers to New Raccoon City, as they try to solve the mysteries surrounding their father and, in turn, the dark history of their new community.
Albert Wesker will be played by legendary The Wire and John Wick actor Lance Reddick, who was announced as Albert Wesker in June during Netflix’s Geeked Week.
The first glimpse of an iconic Resident Evil monster gives fans a taste of what’s to come in Netflix’s first teaser for the series. The zombie Doberman, also known as the Cerberus among fans of the franchise, was shared on Twitter by series star Ella Balinska and displays the creature in all its glory, replete with a trademark snarl and half-bloodied face. The short movie concludes with a peek at the new logo for the show, with Balinska adding 2022 to her tweet, implying that the show will premiere next year.

Resident Evil live-action adaptations aren’t without zombie dogs, but the latest edition of the classic Cerberus is without a doubt the best iteration of the monster yet.
The sinister soundtrack and flashing red lights as the Cerberus approaches the screen, paired with the deep snarl, demonstrate that Netflix has nailed how to make the Cerberus both terrifying and realistic. It’s only one of many issues that previous Resident Evil adaptations have had.
Although their commercial success, the Milla Jovovich-led films have failed to capture the heart of the series, and despite being packed with action and guilty pleasure silliness, they have never felt faithful to the source material.
