The wait for Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness is finally – almost – over as fans were recently treated to a brand new trailer along with an official release date. Coming exclusively to Netflix, you’ll be able to watch Claire and Leon in Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness starting Thursday, July 8! 

Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness Gets a July Release Date

On their YouTube channel, Netflix uploaded a brand new trailer for the upcoming CG animated series, Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness. At the end of the trailer, and in the video’s description box, Netflix gives a brief overview as to when fans can expect to see Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness…

“The landmark survival horror video game series Resident Evil has shipped over 110 million copies worldwide. Popular characters Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield appear in this CG serialized drama, the first in series history! Don’t miss this new epic entertainment on a scale more spectacular than ever before! 

Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness streams worldwide from July 8, 2021, only on Netflix."

The release may be sooner than some were expecting, ourselves included, but we’re nevertheless stoked to know that we won’t have to wait too much longer to check out this exciting Resident Evil series. 

As for what to expect in regards to characters and story, Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness will star Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield voiced by their original voice actors, Nick Apostolides and Stephanie Panisello (according to info on the show's IMDB page).

In the trailer, it opens with Leon talking about having the same nightmare every night and that he remembers people screaming. The trailer then cuts to a scene in the White House where the lights go out and a zombie opens its eyes and sits up.

And if that scene wasn’t creepy enough for you, there’s another scene where a zombie sitting under a pile of dead bodies opens its mouth and sprays out a mess of blood and rats.

Around halfway through the trailer, Claire shows up to tell Leon that, “It’s gotta be another outbreak.” Classic Leon tells Claire he has to go and instructs her not to do anything stupid. In a hotel room, Claire has a nice setup of photos and clues on the wall.

Some of these include a post-it note with “media coverage No. 301” written on it, a newspaper clipping with “Army Col. Wilson” underlined, and another newspaper clipping about Wilson with “powerful influence” written on it and underlined. 

It’s clear that Claire wants to get to the bottom of everything, but over at the White House it sounds like they’re not keen on letting out anything that would challenge the impression they want to give off of being a strong nation. 

We’ll likely see this part of the plot unfold further once Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness releases on Netflix on July 8. Until then though, watching the trailer is enough to keep us satiated along with reading through the comments on YouTube which are just *chef’s kiss* amazing.
