Netflix shows and movies to watch in Summer 2020: The Rain

Season 3 Available in August

Summer is a great time to indulge in a little post-apocalyptic goodness from Denmark. In this case, season 3 of the hit show The Rain is coming in August and if you can get past the subtitles, The Rain is an incredibly addictive show that follows a group of people trying to survive after a strange disease causes people to get sick and die.

Eventually the cause of the outbreak is a toxin found in rain, and subsequently water, and the challenge becomes avoiding water at all costs. Even a foot in a puddle will cause victims to become ill, forcing survivors to put them down or risk becoming infected themselves.

The Rain follows in the tradition of The Walking Dead and The Mist, where a group of people struggle to adapt to life in a world of uncertainty. Unlike those shows, however, it is crystal clear why people are turning into monsters, even though it takes a while for the mystery of the rain illness to be revealed. Now in its third season, though, the stakes are higher than ever as the survivors encounter new threats that make the zombie rain the least of their concerns.
