Looks like Resident Evil fans have more reason to be excited for Netflix’s upcoming new animated series, as Bloody-Disgusting has shared new artwork and details for Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness — the new CG anime series that sees Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield reuniting for another adventure that sees new biological monstrosities come their way.
Returning to voice the roles of Leon and Claire are Nick Apostolides and Stephanie Panisello — who previously voiced the characters in the 2019 Resident Evil 2 Remake. The game was a critical success, and both actors roles were highly praised, which is likely why they’re back to play the same roles albeit in a story that takes place four years after the events of Resident Evil 4.
Here’s new artwork and screenshots released to promote the new series.
Here’s the official synopsis for the series released by Netflix.
“In 2006, there were traces of improper access to secret Presidential files found in the White House’s network. American federal agent Leon S. Kennedy is among the group invited to the White House to investigate this incident, but when the lights suddenly go out, Leon and the SWAT team are forced to take down a horde of mysterious zombies.
“Meanwhile, TerraSave staff member Claire Redfield encounters a mysterious image drawn by a youth in a country she visited, while providing support to refugees. Haunted by this drawing, which appears to be of a victim of viral infection, Claire starts her own investigation.
“The next morning, Claire visits the White House to request the construction of a welfare facility. There, she has a chance reunion with Leon and uses the opportunity to show him the boy’s drawing. Leon seems to realize some sort of connection between the zombie outbreak at the White House and the strange drawing, but he tells Claire that there is no relation and leaves. In time, these two zombie outbreaks in distant countries lead to events that shake the nation to its very core.”
As Capcom celebrates Resident Evil’s 25th Anniversary this year, the upcoming Resident Evil Reboot Movie also shared its first teaser poster.
Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness will be released on Netflix some time in 2021.
