It may look strange, yet The Rain has been praised by critics, while the web series has received mixed reviews from viewers. And such a circumstance most likely served a reason for Netflix to cancel the post-apocalyptic web series after just three seasons. On Rotten Tomatoes, The Rain Season 1 holds a score of 7.45/10 and a 82% approval rating from critics, while viewers have rated the thriller at only 3.5/5, and have given a 61% rating. On Metacritic, The Rain has a rating of 65/100 and 5.5/10, among critics/viewers, respectively. On IMDb, the show's statistics look mediocre as well, 6.4/10 based on about 21,500 votes.
Summing up, it was clear that The Rain won't survive in the Netflix's lineup, and the question of cancellation was just a matter of time. Yet it's perfect that Netflix has given a chance to The Rain to return for a 3rd season.
