Netflix has just revealed more details regarding its upcoming Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness anime series. The highly-anticipated series is just one of the few Resident Evil releases coming out this year in celebration of the horror franchise’s 25th anniversary.

Fans of the 2019 Resident Evil 2 will be delighted to learn that the voice actors Stephanie Panisello and Nick Apostolides would be reprising their roles as Claire Redfield and Leon S. Kennedy, respectively. The reveal also gave a first look at the CG graphics with Leon S. Kennedy sporting a blazer and Claire Redfield is seen wearing a red leather jacket. The art style of the animation has a gritty, dark look to it which is fitting for the franchise.

Netflix’s description for Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness has also been updated with:

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.

Fans of Resident Evil can expect this new animated series to launch later this year.
