If all this sunshine is making you wonder where the hell you are and you want to be reminded of the normal Irish weather we are used to, you should be watching 'The Rain' on Netflix.

The Danish drama is sort of a rain-apocalypse but it's not anything as simple as the rain flooding the world a la Noah and the Ark however, it's much more sinister as it sees a brutal virus carried by the rain wipe out almost all humans.

The dystopian drama only landed on Netflix earlier this month but it must have proven popular as it has just been renewed for a second season.

Kelly Luegenbiehl, Vice President of International Originals for Netflix, said: "We’re really excited to team up with the talented cast and our team of amazing creators for another season. 'The Rain' has a relatable and human story at its core and touches on universal themes everyone can identify with. The fact that season 1 reached audiences all over the world, proves once again that strong stories can transcend borders."

Jannik Tai Mosholt, Head Writer and Co-creator on 'The Rain' said: "We're so thankful for the success of the show and the overwhelmingly positive response from audiences. We’re really excited to be able to do a second season of 'The Rain'. We still have a lot of stories to tell about our characters and much more to explore in our universe, and can't wait for everyone to be able to see it."

'The Rain' will go back into production later this year and will launch its second season in 2019.
