Netflix Cancels Daybreak After Just One Season
If you were fan of the Netflix zombie show Daybreak then boy, do we have some bad news for you.
After just one season, it appears the streaming service is done with the series.
The show is about a post-apocalyptic world where, after a massive zombie invasion, people have to deal with Mad Max-style gangs and horrible creatures called Ghoulies, all while the teenage protagonist searches for his lost love. Sounds cute, right?
Well the series co-creator Aron Coleite has revealed that the series won't continue on Netflix.
I don't even know how to say this, so we prepared a small statement. Love you all. Thank you! pic.twitter.com/rKXWxuaaFh

Coleite wrote on Twitter: "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."
Understandably, the news has not gone down well with fans of the show, with many taking to social media to vent their frustrations.
One person wrote: "Y'all Daybreak is one of the most inclusive shows on @netflix. Deaf characters, LGBT+ POC, strong female leads, etc. It also has a great story line and amazing actors and writers."
Another added: "I watched Daybreak last night staying up to 4AM finishing the series because I was enjoying it so much. Why would Netflix cancel this series before it had a chance to take off? We need more shows like #Daybreak."
A third said: "So Daybreak was cancelled and let me just tell you, that's bulls***! I hope someone else picks it up because it's legit one of the best shows out there to date."
There's no word on whether another network or streaming service will pick up the show but it's clear from the audience reaction that they're desperate to see more.
