A release date has finally been set for Netflix’s Resident Evil live-action series For the simple reason that the actor who played Cedric Daniels in The Wire and Charon in John Wick will be playing long-time Resident Evil game villain Albert Wesker in the upcoming series.

Not only is Reddick a beloved actor, but this is also significant because of this. He will be the first person of colour to play Albert Wesker in any Resident Evil franchise. In August 2020, the series was initially revealed. Netflix’s Geeked Week stream revealed today’s casting news, which indicated that production had begun.


The first season of Netflix’s Resident Evil series will include eight one-hour episodes.
