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 civilisation 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.

The Rain is created by Jannik Tai Mosholt (Rita), Esben Toft Jacobsen (The Great Bear) and Christian Potalivo (Dicte: Crime Reporter) and stars Alba August (Below the Surface), Mikkel Boe Følsgaard (A Royal Affair), Lucas Lynggaard Tønnesen (Tidsrejen), Lars Simonsen (The Bridge), Iben Hjejle (High Fidelity), Angela Bundalovic (Dark Horse), Sonny Lindberg (The Legacy), Jessica Dinnage (The Guilty), Lukas Løkken (One-Two-Three Now!) and Johannes Kuhnke (Force Majeure).

The Rain is the first Danish original series for Netflix and will launch on May 4, 2018
