Below is the synopsis of "The Rain," per Rotten Tomatoes

The world as we know it has ended. Six years after a brutal virus carried by the rain wiped out almost all humans in Scandinavia, two Danish siblings emerge from the safety of their bunker to find all remnants of civilisation gone. Soon they join a group of young survivors and together set out on a danger-filled quest through abandoned Scandinavia, searching for any sign of life.

The show holds a fresh rating of 85 percent on Rotten TomatoesCollider's Haleigh Foutch wrote "The Rain" is binge-worthy TV: 

"You won’t be surprised by much in The Rain, but you will be entertained. If you’re familiar with post-apocalyptic fiction and YA drama, you’ll see the threads of your favorites everywhere in the show. But you’ll also realize pretty quickly that The Rain is some of the best survivalist drama to hit screens in years, even if it leans heavily on the familiar tropes, with exciting, unpredictable and genuinely likable characters that keep you glued to the screen."
