Resident Evil has quickly become one of those properties that mutates – a bit like the creatures at its heart - into different forms. The games have spawned movies, animated series and now a TV show from Netflix, which launched a new trailer as part of its Geeked Week announcements.

This latest televisual take on the games' story (not even Netflix's first, as that would be the animated Infinite Darkness) casts Lance Reddick as Albert Wesker, an employee at the Umbrella Corporation – with Tamara Smart and Siena Agudong as his adoptive daughters Billie and Jade, respectively. Wesker brings the kids to live in the seemingly utopian Raccoon City, as he works on new drugs for the company, which is looking for some image rehabilitation following scandals.

That's 2022, and of course if you know anything about the games, you know what happens next... a virus in the wonder drugs mutates people into terrifying creatures. Cut to 2036 London, where an older Jade (Ella Balinska) is battling zombies and other nasty types.

Supernatural veteran Andrew Dabb created the show, which also stars Ahad Raza Mir, Adeline Rudolph, Paola Nuñez, Connor Gossatti and Turlough Convery. It'll arrive on Netflix on 14 July.
