Why Netflix’s Post-Apocalyptic Comedy Daybreak Was Canceled

“Daybreak” wasn’t exactly the buzziest Netflix show, so it might not have even been on your radar. The series premiered on Netflix back in 2019, and came from creators Brad Peyton

and Aron Eli Coleite, adapting the comic series by Brian Ralph. The series was essentially a high school comedy that just happened to be set in a post-apocalyptic world. Here’s the official synopsis: 

High school isn’t the end of the world… until it is. In this post-apocalyptic, genre-bending series, the city of Glendale, California is populated by marauding gangs of jocks, gamers, the 4-H Club, and other fearsome tribes who are kicking ass as they fight to survive in the wake of a nuclear blast (on the night of Homecoming…ugh). Following an eclectic group of survivors as they navigate this strange and treacherous world, Daybreak is part samurai saga, part endearing coming-of-age story, and part Battle Royale.

The cast included Colin Ford, Alyvia Alyn Lind, Sophie Simnett, Austin Crute, Cody Kearsley, Jeanté Godlock, Gregory Kasyan, Krysta Rodriguez, and Matthew Broderick.
