There won’t be a sophomore season for Netflix‘s high school zombie series. The streaming service has opted to cancel the Daybreak TV series after one season of 10 episodes.
The Daybreak TV show stars Colin Ford, Alyvia Alyn Lind, Sophie Simnett, Austin Crute, Gregory Kasyan, Krysta Rodriguez, Cody Kearsley, Jeanté Godlock, and Matthew Broderick. Based on the graphic novel by Brian Ralph, the series follows Josh Wheeler (Ford), a 17-year-old high school outcast who’s searching for his missing girlfriend, Sam (Simnett), in a post-apocalyptic Glendale, California. He’s joined by a ragtag group of misfits that includes a pyromaniac 12-year-old Angelica (Lind) and Josh’s former high school bully, Wesley (Crute). The group tries to stay alive amongst the horde of gangs of evil jocks and cheerleaders turned Amazon warriors, zombie-like creatures called Ghoulies, and everything else this brave new world throws at them.
The series launched on October 24th of this year and, it would seem, didn’t attract enough viewers for Netflix to want to order a second season. The streaming service often makes a decision on a show’s fate some four or six weeks after a release. Series co-creator and executive producer Aron Eli Coleite revealed that the show had been cancelled via Twitter.
