The Sun Sets On Netflix’s Daybreak With A Cancellation After One Season

Sorry, Daybreakers. Netflix’s Daybreak will not be returning for a second season.

Producers for the series announced on Tuesday, December 17 about the decision through a joint statement released on Aron Coleite’s Twitter. Netflix, as this time, has no released a statement about the cancellation.

Based on the comic of the same name, Daybreaks follows high school student Josh (Colin Ford) in the aftermath of nuclear blast. All of the teens and kids are just fine, but adults have been turned into zombie-like creatures. Together with his former bully Wesley Fists (Austin Crute) and pyrotechnic whiz Angelica (Alyvia Alyn Lind), the three navigate and try to survive their new reality.


In the statement, producers thanked Daybreakers for their support even if it was just for a season. Here is the text of the statement in full.

“We learned last week that Daybreak will not be returning for a second season. We’re so sorry 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.

Here at Daybreak we don’t say we love you. We say ‘you’re a s—.’ We say ‘let’s be monsters.’ So be s—s, be monsters, give ’em Hell. Most importantly, keep being you. No one is as heartbroken as we are that we can’t share more of this ride with you. But we’re so grateful to have gotten to bring it this far. Thank you for riding with us, for your voices, your enthusiasm, your memes, your fart jokes, and your unashamed crazy. We’ll see you out there.”

We’re presuming that there will be efforts to find the show a new home elsewhere

Daybreak‘s only season can be streamed on Netflix.
