Netflix's The Rain — Teaser Trailer


added: Thu, Mar 22nd '18

Netflix has released the first teaser trailer for "The Rain," the streaming company's first original Danish series set in a post-apocalyptic Scandinavia, following a group of teenage survivors as they're left to restore society six years after lethal contaminated rain storms nearly wiped out the population.

Co-created by Danish television writers Jannik Tai Mosholt (Borgen, Rita), Esben Toft Jacobsen (The Great Bear, Beyond Beyond) and Christian Potalivo (Dicte, The New Tenants), the thriller series, which seems to be the post-apocalyptic teen version of "Lord of the Flies," boasts a cast of mostly young Danish actors, led by Alba August, Lucas Lynggaard Tonnesen, Mikkel Boe Folsgaard, Sonny Lindberg, Jessica Dinnage, and Angela Bundalovic.

Directed by helmer Kenneth Kainz (The Shamer's Daughter) with several episodes directed by both Kainz and Natasha Arthy (Old, New, Borrowed and Blue), "The Rain" will be released globally on Netflix Friday, May 4th.

The world as we know it has ended. Six years after a brutal virus carried by the rain wipes out nearly the entire population of Scandinavia, two Danish siblings emerge from the safety of their bunker to find all remnants of civilisation gone. Soon they join a group of other young survivors and together they 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, and many of the coming of age dilemmas they thought they'd left behind with the disappearance of the world they once knew.

Who will you be when the rain comes?
