Danish post-apocalyptic web series “The Rain” has been renewed for a third and final season on Netflix.

“Survival Squad: We’ll see you in 2020 for the third and final season,” the official Twitter account for the series tweeted Tuesday.

Netflix’s official description of the show reads: “The world as we know it has ended. Six years after a brutal virus carried by the rain wipes out almost all humans in Scandinavia, two Danish siblings emerge from the safety of their bunker to find all remnants of civilization gone. Soon they join a group of young survivors and together set out on a danger-filled quest through an abandoned Scandinavia, searching for any sign of life. Set free from their collective past and societal rules, the group has the freedom to be who they want to be. In their struggle for survival, they discover that even in a post-apocalyptic world there’s still love, jealousy, and many of the coming of age dilemmas they thought they’d left behind with the disappearance of the world they once knew. Who will you be when the rain comes?”

“The Rain” is Netflix’s first Danish original series. Season 1 premiered in May 2018, followed by Season 2 in May 2019. The final season is set to premiere sometime in 2020.

The series is created by Jannik Tai Mosholt (“Follow the Money”), Esben Toft Jacobsen (“The Great Bear”) and Christian Potalivo (“Dicte”).

The cast includes Alba August (“Reliance”), Mikkel Boe Følsgaard (“A Royal Affair,” “The Legacy”), Lucas Lynggaard Tønnesen (“Tidsrejsen”), Lars Simonsen (“Brotherhood”), Iben Hjejle (“Dicte,” “High Fidelity”), Angela Bundalovic (“Blood Sisters”), Sonny Lindberg (The Legacy”), Jessica Dinnage (“The Guilty”), Lukas Løkken (“One-Two-Three Now!”) and Johannes Kuhnke (“Force Majeure”).
