Netflix renews The Rain for season 2

Last Updated on August 5, 2021

One of the recent horror TV series that I really have been meaning to check out is Netflix's THE RAIN. I've heard good things from a few trusted colleagues and the show's Rotten Tomatoes score adds up to a more than healthy recommend.

And I'd better get to watching the series sooner rather than later as it seems that THE RAIN has been given a season 2 order by Netflix. On top of that, we just got word via Variety that the show will go back into production later this year, with the second season set to hit in 2019.

Vice president of international originals for Netflix said Kelly Luegenbiehl:

We’re really excited to team up with the talented cast and our team of amazing creators for another season. The Rain’ has a relatable and human story at its core and touches on universal themes everyone can identify with. The fact that season 1 reached audiences all over the world, proves once again that strong stories can transcend borders.

The series was created by Jannik Tai Mosholt, Esben Toft Jacobsen, and Christian Potalivo and begins:

Six years after a brutal virus carried by the rain wipes 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 quest through an abandoned Scandinavia, searching for any sign of life.

The show stars Alba August, Mikkel Boe Følsgaard, Lucas Lynggaard Tønnesen, Lars Simonsen, Sonny Lindberg, Jessica Dinnage, Lukas Løkken, and Johannes Kuhnke.
