Less than two months after the launch of its first season, the postapocalyptic comedy-drama “Daybreak” has been canceled by Netflix, co-creator Aron Coliete announced Monday night.
“We learned last week that “Daybreak” will not be returning for a second season. We’re so sorry that we couldn’t share it with you sooner but also so grateful that we got to hang out in these last few live tweet sessions with all of you. Thank you for picking up what we put down, for running with it in all of your amazing, weird, monstrous ways and for being such an important part of this show and our experience making it,” Coliete said in a statement posted on Twitter.
Netflix representatives confirmed the show has been canceled.
Created by Coliete and Brad Peyton, the series focuses on a 17-year-old Canadian high school student who gets trapped in Glendale, California while attending high school there as a transfer student when the apocalypse occurs.
Joining up with a group of misfits, he searches for his missing British girlfriend while trying to survive postapocalyptic horrors that include former cliques-turned-gangs, and zombielike mutants.
The show starred Colin Ford, Alyvia Alyn Lind, Sophie Simnett, Austin Crute, Cody Kearsley, Jeanté Godlock, Gregory Kasyan, Krysta Rodriguez and Matthew Broderick, and was based on the graphic novel of the same name by Brian Ralph.
