Netflix has been killing it with original horror movies and original series. In terms of the latter, we’ve gotten 2 seasons of Stranger Things and Season 1 of Dark recently; fans of those shows will want to check out The Rain when it arrives on the streaming giant sometime this spring. In the trailer, below, we see a dystopian near-future where there’s something very wrong with the rain.
The streaming service’s first co-production with Denmark, The Rain – co-created by Jannik Tai Mosholt, the man behind hugely popular political series Borgen – is set to be unveiled this spring.

Official Synopsis: The world as we know it has ended. Six years after a brutal virus wiped out almost all humans in Scandinavia, two Danish siblings, join a group of young survivors set out to find out whether a new world has begun somewhere else. They all hope that the siblings’ father is somewhere out there with answers.
Set free from the rules of civilized society, each of the young members of the group has the freedom to be who they want to be, but they all struggle with their inner selves, and the fact that even in a post-apocalyptic world there’s love, jealousy, coming of age, and every problem they thought they’d left behind with the disappearance of the world as they knew it.
The Rain stars Alba August, Lucas Lynggaard Tønnesen, and Mikkel Boe Følsgaard.
We’ll bring you an exact release date for The Rain as soon as it’s revealed. Stay tuned!
