The Rain shows the post-apocalyptic survival of human beings and much more. The series is of 3 seasons with 20 episodes streamed in a runtime of 45mins per episode. The series is one of the Danish series. The first season was aired in May 2018, the series ended with 3 seasons. The last season was premiered in Aug 2020.



A brutal virus carried by the rain almost wiped all humans in Scandinavia, A Danish Scientist along with his wife and two kids refuge into an Apollon bunker. He went out to save the world asking his daughter to take care of his brother as he was the key to the cure. The siblings survived 6 years in a bunker, for food, they emerge from the bunker to search for survival and found odds and ends of civilization gone. They found a group who also surviving the apocalypse join hands to set out on a danger-filled quest through abandoned Scandinavia, searching for any sign of life. In their struggle for survival, they discover that even in the 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.


Later the crew founds that the apocalypse is because of man-made, not nature made which caused the death of the human being. Who made the Virus? Did they cure the virus? Does the brother help with the cure of the virus? What happens next is the remaining flick?


The Group of Survivors


The series started with a solid story that makes us sit tight which got imploded in later episodes. The writer tried to hold the suspense of the manmade virus but missed to tell about the cure which emerged from nowhere in season three. The climax of season three looks inexplicable. The writer played a ball game with the manmade virus by making a new world or new normal world with the virus which incinerates the main plot of the story (i.e.) the survival.



The final episode of every season was intriguing. Apart from those, no scenes are addictive.



The roles of Simone and Rasmus are plausible, I sincerely felt boring when Simone calls RASMUS all the time, showing so much of caring which overspill him makes him do the contrary. The roles of Martin, Patrick, Fie, Sarah were another add on role to the story. The role of Daniel in season 3, was new and another add on to make the story to travel to the end.



Music is satisfactorily traveled until the end. The dialogs felt boredom and felt incomplete. The cinematography is great.



The Rain is made to set an example but missed to do so, A solid story of survival which started alike but the route got changed into a story of a virus and the human being who tried to cure the virus.
