Netflix has renewed its first Danish original series “The Rain” for a second season. Debuting on May 4, “The Rain” is set years after a terrible virus carried by the rain wipes out almost all humans in Scandinavia. After two Danish siblings, Simone and Rasmus, emerge from the safety of their bunker to find all remnants of civilization gone they join a group of young survivors in Scandinavia, searching for any sign of life. Set free from their collective past and societal rules, the group has the freedom to be who they want to be. In their struggle for survival, they discover that even in a post-apocalyptic world there’s still love, jealousy, coming of age, and many of the problems they thought they’d left behind with the disappearance of the world they once knew.
“The Rain” is created by Jannik Tai Mosholt, Esben Toft Jacobsen and Christian Potalivo.
