Plot summary

"Nearly three decades after the discovery of the T-virus, an outbreak reveals the Umbrella Corporation's dark secrets. Based on the horror franchise."
— The official Netflix summary from August.

The series' main plot is spread out over two periods in time - 2022 and 2036, separated by a gap of some 14 years.[4] The "past" plotline deals with the struggles of 14 year old half-twins Billie and Jade Wesker, adopted children raised by Albert Wesker. Their lives take a dramatic turn when Albert is awarded an executive position at the struggling Umbrella Corporation that once employed him, and they move to the company's planned community in New Raccoon City, South Africa. While there the two girls stumble onto the dark secrets behind the city's history and Umbrella's dark legacy, while their father deals with a T-virus outbreak.

In the present of 2036, the virus has long since spread across the world, mutating most of the population into creatures called "Zeroes". Human civilization has been reduced to 15 million refugees living in a series of isolated city states, with the most powerful remnant being controlled by Umbrella's paramilitary. Billie and Jade have spent the pandemic living separately, with Jade fleeing to Europe and becoming a leading expert on Zero biology and Billie growing up in Umbrella's domain. While Jade has long believed her sister to be dead, Billie has risen to a senior rank within the corporate hierarchy and is involved in a global manhunt for Jade.
