What will happen in The Rain season 2?
The tagline for The Rain season two reads: “You. Can’t. Survive. Alone.”
The trailer for the new series reveals a boy who has been infected by the rain virus for the first series.
However, unlike all of the previous victims, he has somehow survived the outbreak.
The trailer begins with a character saying: “The virus killed everyone who contracted it, so how can he be infected without dying.”
That boy is Rasmus (played by Lucas Lynggaard Tønnesen), who was revealed in the previous series to be immune to the virus after his father seemed to provide him with the vaccine.
The promo also shows a mass manhunt break out after the boy escapes a medical facility.
This is not before, however, they try to create a vaccine from him, which results in the virus spreading out into the air and killing everyone in the facility.
Season two will also have to answer some of the hanging questions from the first series, like whether he killed Beatrice (Angela Bundalovic).
