Netflix's best apocalyptic series

Since the arrival of The Walking Dead, apocalyptic series have flooded the main streaming platforms and Netflix remains one of the most important production companies in recent times. From Stranger Things, which features one of the U.S. industry's most popular series, to two European series that have become very popular, Netflix has produced what can be considered the best apocalyptic series of recent times.

Stranger Things

Winona Ryder is the star of the series that has been making waves on Netflix since its release in 2016The series begins with the disappearance of her son Will and a series of strange events that begin to see the light in the desperate search to find him. His friends, family and even the police will be involved in more than one terrifying episode that seems to have no explanation.

In addition to this, a girl named 13 arrives and, with telekinetic powers, helps the group of friends to find Will. So far, everything seems to coincide with the development of a detective series; however, the group of friends randomly open the door to a terrifying portal where they find an apocalyptic version of their own world.

Dark

Dark is a German series that, like Stranger Things, begins with the disappearance of a child, Mikkel. The story takes place in a small village where children have disappeared for the first time and Mikkel is just another link in an intricate story involving four families and more than a century of mystery. Soon, what begins in the year 2021 takes place in several epochs and a bridge to time travel is discovered within a cave system under the town's nuclear plant.

As the episodes unfold, each character will discover more and more disturbing secrets and their protagonists, Jonas and Martha, will have to fight against destiny in an attempt to avoid the apocalypse that will bring about the destruction of the world as we know it.

The Rain

Of Danish origin, The Rain follows the story of a lethal virus that eradicates almost the entire Nordic population. Simone and Rasmus, the brothers who star in the series, remain in a bunker until, years later, they decide to leave in search of food after finishing their supplies. In an almost abandoned world they find a group of survivors who, like them, try to understand what happened. Together they join in the quest to return the world to its beauty and set out on a journey that will lead them to Apollon, a paramilitary organization that conducts scientific research.

Unknowingly, Rasmus has the answers that unravel the mysteries surrounding the deadly virus and how to control it.
