At the time of the show’s commission, Mosholt said: ““Civilization is very fickle. It’s a thin layer spread out over thousands of years of basic survival.
“And now, after a sudden burst of inspiration, we humans believe that we have it all under control. I want to find out whether this is true.
“What is left of us when civilization is stripped away in an instant. How do we survive? Do we go back to being animals or do we rise to the occasion, insisting on bringing humanity into an inhumane world.
“I am so thrilled to be making this show with Netflix and Miso Film, and I couldn’t be happier with the cast and can’t wait to put them in a post-apocalyptic Scandinavia, where all the straight lines of the controlled North have shattered, and let uncontrolled nature take over everything.”
Ahead of the release of season three, The Rain had been watched by an estimated 30 million viewers so far and this number is likely to have increased since.
The Rain has garnered comparisons to the likes of German sci-fi series Dark as well zombie show The Walking Dead due to post-apocalyptic themes.
Season three of The Rain got the greenlight in 2019 after the second outing had come out on Netflix.
Netflix confirmed the show would be concluding with fans finding out more about Apollon and the virus.
