Netflix has released the first official poster and trailer for their upcoming post-apocalyptic series titled DAYBREAK. Make sure you check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.
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. This Generation A-series (A for Apocalypse! Get it?) is rated TV-MA.
Starring Matthew Broderick (The Lion King, Godzilla) as Glendale High School’s Principal Michael Burr; Krysta Rodriguez (Killing Diaz, “Smash”) as the biology teacher; Colin Ford (Captain Marvel, “Under the Dome”) as our hero and every-teen, 17-year-old Josh Wheeler; Sophie Simnett (“The Five”, “The Lodge”) as Sam Dean, the most widely admired girl at Glendale High; Austin Crute (Booksmart, “Atlanta”) as contemplative samurai Wesley Fists; Alyvia Alyn Lind (Blended, Overboard) as highly unstable kid genius Angelica Green; Cody Kearsley (Power Rangers, “Riverdale”) as Turbo Bro Jock, the bloodthirsty leader of the jocks; Jeanté Godlock (Sell Out!, The Simone Biles Story: Courage to Soar) as Mona Lisa, his badass right-hand woman; and Gregory Kasyan (Badsville, The Loner) as Eli Cardashyan (not that Kardashian).
Executive producers are Aron Eli Coleite (“Heroes”, The End), Brad Peyton (Rampage, San Andreas), and Jeff Fierson (Awake, Dead Man on Campus).
DAYBREAK will debut on Netflix on October 24, 2019.
