CAN THEY SURVIVE EACH OTHER?

The Rain launched its first season on Netflix in 2018 and has since then excited young fans from all over the world. The apocalyptic series has a strong fan base in its origin country Denmark, but it has also been welcomed by fans from other countries such as Germany, Poland, France, Brazil, Mexico, and the US.
