Fans of the Resident Evil series might be a bit confused by trailers for the new Resident Evil Netflix series. Albert Wesker, played by Lance Reddick, is front-and-center in those trailers. This is definitely confusing, as those who play the games know that Wesker is dead. How on earth does this make sense?

Comicbook.com spoke to Resident Evil showrunner Andrew Dabb to find out how this was possible. Dabb wasn’t ready to give up details yet, but he did say that an explanation is coming.

So essentially, what happened. So number one is, you know, in the games, Wesker is dead. He got blown up by a rocket launcher in a volcano. The games are our backstory. So everything in the games exists in this world. So how is Wesker alive? Now, I will say stay tuned. And the answer is not like he’s immune to lava. You know what I mean?

I don't know, can't Wesker just stay dead?

I appreciate franchises allowing some characters to stay dead. This to me would be like having Metroid 6 bring back Ridley because he is very popular.
