Launched in 2018, the Danish post-apocalyptic web television series gained popularity with its unpredictable scenes and characters. It is also considered as one of the best survivalist dramas to hit screens.

Following the show's two successful seasons, fans are now excited to watch the story of how the two siblings -- Simone (played by Alba August) and her younger brother Rasmus (portrayed by Lynggaard Tonnesen) -- will survive the post-apocalyptic life after half of the population has been wiped out by a deadly virus carried by raindrops.

Having said that, here's everything you need to know about the "The Rain Season 3."

Will they manage to put their differences aside in order to do the right thing?" the synopsis reads. "Will they manage to put their differences aside in order to do the right thing?"
