The Rain season 2 will be released on Friday, May 17, 2019. Watch the first season on Netflix now.

We hope you brought your umbrellas because The Rain is coming back very soon! And, if you remember from season 1, this is not your normal rain.

Netflix announced The Rain season 2 premiere date will be on May 17, 2019. The streaming network announced the release date and shared the first official poster (Key Art) for the new season via their See What’s Next Twitter account.

For those who don’t remember, The Rain is Netflix’s first Danish original series. The show premiered on the streaming service on May 4, 2018, so it’s been about a year since we’ve seen anything about this original series.

The show follows a brother and sister duo who live in a bunker after a natural disaster wipes out the world they know. With supplies dwindling, the pair leave the bunker for the first time and find the world has changed since they went away.

Check out the release date announcement and poster below!

The tagline for the new season, as you can see above, is “You can’t survive alone.” Overall, I’m excited for the new season. I wasn’t a huge fan of the direction the show was headed at the end of the first season, but I think they’ve corrected course a little bit. That’s what I’m hoping anyway.

No spoilers for those who haven’t seen the series yet!

You can watch the first season of the post-apocalyptic series on Netflix right now, and we highly recommend it with season 2 coming back even sooner than we expected. Initially, we thought the show would return for season 2 this spring, but we didn’t hear anything about the series for a long time. Typically, that means the show won’t be back for a while. That does not seem to be the case with this new season.

In the next few weeks, Netflix should release the official trailer for season 2 and, probably, a synopsis for the new season. Stay tuned for more news about The Rain season 2!
