Well, it looks the party’s over for horror-comedy series Daybreak.
After a ten-episode season that only arrived on Netflix on October 24, the streaming giant has decided that they won’t be delivering a second. As usual, Netflix hasn’t released the ratings figures for the series, but it’s clear that despite a cult following, the viewership wasn’t enough to warrant more.
“No one is as heartbroken as we are that we can’t share more of this ride with you,” co-creator Aron Eli Coleite said in a statement shared on social media. “But we’re so grateful to have gotten to bring it this far.” You can read the whole statement below.
Based on a graphic novel by Brian Ralph, Daybreak follows high school outcast Josh Wheeler, played by Colin Ford, who searches for his missing girlfriend in a zombie-riddled, post apocalyptic Glendale. He’s joined by a group of misfits, including his former bully.
Netflix has been cancelling a number of shows as they attempt to configure their line up with the rise in competition from Disney+ and AppleTV+. Anne with an E and Mystery Science Theater 3000 are among the recent cull.
