– CAN THEY SURVIVE EACH OTHER?
The Danish Netflix Original Series The Rain, one of the most viewed non-English Netflix originals, returns for a third and final season August 6 2020.
The Rain launched its first season on Netflix in 2018 and has since then excited young fans from all over the world. The apocalyptic series has a strong fan base in its origin country Denmark, but it has also been welcomed by fans from other countries such as Germany, Poland, France, Brazil, Mexico, and the US. No less than 30 million viewers have watched The Rain and today the Danish Netflix Original is still one of the most watched non-English Netflix Originals.
The Rain season 3 will pick up where the second season left off. Years after the rain decimated the population of Scandinavia, Simone and Rasmus find themselves at odds on how to save humanity.

Will they manage to put their differences aside in order to do the right thing?
