Well, it looks like Netflix’s zombie-teen series Daybreak has been canceled after just one season. The update comes from co-creator Aron Coleite over on Twitter who writes:
“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 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 … 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.”

Daybreak follows 17-year-old Canadian high school outcast Josh Wheeler, who is searching for his missing British girlfriend Sam Dean in post-apocalyptic Glendale, California. He is joined by a ragtag group of misfits, including 10-year-old pyromaniac Angelica and Josh’s former high school bully Wesley, who is now a pacifist would-be samurai. Josh tries to survive amongst the hordes of Mad Max-style gangs (evil jocks, cheerleaders turned Amazonian warriors), zombie-like creatures called Ghoulies, and everything else this brave new world throws at him.
The series starred Colin Ford as Josh Wheeler, Alyvia Alyn Lind as Angelica Green, Sophie Simnett as Samaira “Sam” Dean, Austin Crute as Wesley Fists, Cody Kearsley as Turbo “Bro Jock” Pokaski, Jeanté Godlock as Mona Lisa, Gregory Kasyan as Eli Cardashyan, Krysta Rodriguez as Ms. Crumble / The Witch, and Matthew Broderick as Michael Burr / Baron Triumph.
