‘The Rain’ Bosses Explain That Rasmus Twist and Discuss Season 2 Hopes

‘The Rain’ Bosses Explain That Rasmus Twist and Discuss Season 2 Hopes
[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers about “The Rain” Season 1, including the finale.]

In Netflix’s post-apocalyptic series “The Rain,” the pernicious precipitation is deadly to most of Scandinavia and has a massive impact on anyone else who’s survived. For Rasmus Andersen (Lucas Lynggaard Tønnesen), living through the (un)natural disaster has a traumatic effect on him, especially when he understands that although he’s resistant to the virus that’s carried in the raindrops, and therefore he could be the key to developing a vaccine, he’s also a carrier of a mutated strain that is even more devastating than the original.

In the series’ sixth episode, viewers get their first clue that not all might be right with Rasmus. After spending an intimate night with Beatrice (Angela Bundalovic), he finds her lying dead next to him in the morning. It’s not entirely clear what may have caused this. The rain that dripped on

"The Rain" Epis. 1 "Stay Inside" Expects Viewers to Believe the Unbelievable: A Television Episode Review (and Beyond)

Tagline: "Stay Dry. Stay Alive." Director: Kenneth Kainz. Writers: Jannik Tai Mosholt, Christian Potalivo and Esben Toft Jacobsen. Cast: Alba August, Lucas Lynggaard Tønnesen, Mikkel Boe Følsgaard and Lars Simonsen. "The Rain" is a science fiction thriller from Denmark. The initial series consists of eight episodes. And, this is the first Danish series for Netflix. In the series, a family struggles to cope with a virus, which is spread through water droplets. The first episode, "Stay Inside," puts the family below ground in a bunker. But, events force some of the characters back outside. The series does not really offer hyper-realism, with a brother and sister surviving in the bunker for five plus years. Still, "The Rain" is a decent apocalyptic series, partially set in the beautiful Danish countryside. The first episode begins and stays with the protagonist, Simone (Alba August). The initial scenes are very light in tone. Characters wear bright smiles and bright,

The Rain Review – Netflix Delivers Another Foreign Must Watch

The Rain kicks off with a series of events that is by now so commonplace that it makes it difficult for the post-apocalyptic wonder to properly set the tone and mood. Luckily, once Simone (Alba August) and her younger brother, Rasmus (Lucas Lynggaard Tønnesen) enter the doomsday bunker the series begins to realize its potential. As the fascination with the end of the world, whether by disease, catastrophe, or zombie horde, locks its grip on the current cultural consciousness, it becomes harder and harder to effectively get to the meat of the matter. The Rain struggles to establish its particular spin on things without becoming boring, but mostly because it’s railing against so many efforts that came before, and it can’t figure out a way to say the same old things in a way that feels fresh. Mostly, it just decides not to bother. Average-ish teen Simone wanders

‘The Rain’ Ending: 9 Burning Season 2 Questions After That Sick Twist

‘The Rain’ Ending: 9 Burning Season 2 Questions After That Sick Twist
[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers from Season 1 of “The Rain” on Netflix, including the finale.]

Netflix’s latest foreign-language series “The Rain” falls mainly on the Danes in a soggy twist on the post-apocalyptic genre. A virus contained in rainfall causes severe and swift allergic reactions in everyone it drenches, which means that a huge swath of the Scandinavian population caught outside is dead within minutes.

Two siblings, Simone and Rasmus, literally weather the storm by hiding out in a bunker for six years and then emerge into a transformed world in which the other survivors have learned to become hard, distrusting, and ruthless. In the end, however, it’s revealed that Rasmus is resistant to the virus and therefore is the one hope for humanity. But wait! He’s now also a carrier of the disease and highly contagious. Way to rain on that parade.

After bingeing the downpour of all eight episodes in the first season,

‘The Rain’ Review: Netflix Sci-Fi Drama About Survivors of a Deadly Storm Is Mostly a Wash

‘The Rain’ Review: Netflix Sci-Fi Drama About Survivors of a Deadly Storm Is Mostly a Wash
Realizing that the one thing you need to survive is also the one thing that can kill you is a daunting prospect. It’s the basic foundation of many a sci-fi dystopia, whether they take place in space, on earth, or in some other mystical realm. “The Rain,” the latest Netflix original from Denmark, tweaks that question: What if some light precipitation could be the thing that wipes out all of humanity?

For Simone (Alba August) and Rasmus (Lucas Lynggaard Tønnesen), two teens who escaped a cataclysmic, Scandinavia-wide downpour, the answer means spending the better part of a half-decade inside a secure bunker, away from that unfiltered rain. Like most other elements of “The Rain,” their method of survival seems more complicated than it actually is. The last thing piece of advice their father gives them before heading above to an uncertain world is to…survive. After a safe time

‘The Rain’ Trailer: Netflix’s Latest Drama Series is a Denmark-Set Apocalypse Where Clouds Can Kill

The end of the world is pretty terrifying, no matter how it happens. In the upcoming Netflix series “The Rain,” the main culprit is a deadly downpour that wipes out most of Scandinavia’s population.

People outrunning killer weather isn’t entirely new in apocalypse stories (just ask Jake Gyllenhaal), but it looks like this show is more concerned with what happens years later, after two children who survived the initial attack venture back out into the world to find companions. Emerging from a bunker they’ve been locked in for half a decade, they eventually found people who had their own way of lasting through the killer precipitation.

After finding a small pack of other survivors, it’s clear that even though the streets and schools and supermarkets are deserted, the danger didn’t end when the deadly virus got swept away. There are guns and gangs and killer
