Netflix has revealed more information about Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness, the anime that’s coming to the streaming platform later this year.
The biggest news is the fact that the voice actors for Leon Kennedy and Clare Redfield from Resident Evil 2 Remake will be returning for this series. We now know that the series will be set in 2006, which is quite a while after the events of Resident Evil 2.

We also got a larger look at the plot which you can find below:
In 2006, the White House, a symbol of the United States, was hacked by someone. Traces of unauthorized access were found in top secret files under the presidential jurisdiction. US agents Leon S. Kennedy and others convened for the investigation encounter unidentified zombies in the sudden power outage of the White House and control them with SWAT.
Meanwhile, Terrasave employee Claire Redfield encounters a strange painting by a boy with aphasia in a country he visited to help refugees. Claire pursues her own investigation triggered by the picture that seems to have drawn a virus-infected person.
The next morning, Claire visits the White House to petition for the construction of a welfare facility, finds Leon who happens to meet again, and shows the boy’s drawing. Leon realizes something about the connection between the White House zombie incident and the strange painting, but leaves the scene saying it has nothing to do with Claire. The two zombie outbreaks that took place in distant countries eventually evolved into a nation-shaking situation.
