It's been announced that Netflix original series, The Rain will be ending after its upcoming Season 3

According to See What's Next, this will be the final outing for the Danish post-apocalyptic series.

Season 1 debuted on May 4, 2018, and the show was quickly renewed for Season 2, on May 30 of the same year. Season 2 subsequently launched six new episodes on May 17, 2019.

Per a description of the series: "When a virus that is carried by rainfall wipes out almost all humans in Scandinavia, Danish siblings Simone (August) and Rasmus (Tønnesen) take shelter in a bunker. Six years later, they emerge to search for their father, a scientist who left them in the bunker but never returned."

"Along the way they join a group of young survivors and together they travel across Denmark and Sweden, searching for a safe place, and for the siblings' father, who may be able to provide the answers and the cure," the description adds.
