Taking to his Instagram on May 12, 2022, Resident Evil star Lance Reddick who will be seen playing the role of Albert, shared the minute-long teaser of the upcoming series. He shared the video with a caption indicating the chaos and gruesome wreckage left in the wake of the undead army in the New Raccoon City.
