Netflix announces The Rain premiere date with trailer
Netflix has announced that young adult thriller series The Rain will be premiering on the streaming/video-on-demand platform on May 4, 2018.
The world as we know it has ended. In Netflix’s The Rain, two Danish siblings emerge from the safety of their bunker six years after a brutal virus carried by the rain wipes out almost all humans in Scandinavia. After realizing all remnants of civilization are gone, they join a group of young survivors and together set out on a danger-filled quest through an abandoned Scandinavia, searching for any signs 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, and many of the coming of age dilemmas they thought they’d left behind with the disappearance of the world they once knew
The Rain is Netflix’s first Danish original series, and is created by Jannik Tai Mosholt, Esben Toft Jacobsen and Christian Potalivo.
It stars Alba August, Mikkel Boe Følsgaard, Lucas Lynggaard Tønnesen, Lars Simonsen, Iben Hjejle, Angela Bundalovic, Sonny Lindberg, Jessica Dinnage, Lukas Løkken and Johannes Kuhnke.
