After a brutal virus wipes out most of the population, two young siblings embark on a perilous search for safety.
“The Rain”, created by Jannik Tai Mosholt (Borgen, Rita, Follow the Money), Esben Toft Jacobsen (The Great Bear, Beyond Beyond), and Christian Potalivo (Dicte, The New Tenants, Long Story Short), is the first Danish original series for Netflix and will come pouring down on May 4th.
Here’s the brand new trailer that shows our survivors entering a bunker to avoid the virus-laced rain and coming out years later…
“The world as we know it has ended. Six years after a brutal virus carried by the rain wiped out almost all humans in Scandinavia, two Danish siblings emerge from the safety of their bunker to find all remnants of civilization gone. Soon they join a group of young survivors and together set out on a danger-filled quest through abandoned 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.
Who will you be when the rain comes?”
