The new Netflix series, Daybreak, which takes place after a nuclear bomb explosion leaving just kids and teenagers to fend for themselves, debuted in October 2019 and was an instant favorite among fans. Fans have been hoping for a second season after the events of season one; when the kids and Ms. Crumble defeated Baron Triumph and stopped a missile from going off. Sam Dean also became the new “Queen of the Apocalypse.”

Cast, crew, and fans have been tweeting the hashtag #FinishDaybreak in hopes of Netflix renewing the show. Unfortunately, it looks like we can only imagine what would have happened. Towards the end of the December 16 live tweet party, executive producer Aron Coleite broke the news to fans in a heartfelt letter on Twitter that Netflix had decided to not renew the show.

“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,” Coleite wrote. “Thank you for riding with us, for your voices, your enthusiasm, your memes, your fart jokes, and your unashamed crazy. We’ll see you out there.”

Cast and crew have been joining in, thanking fans. Greg Kasyan, who plays Eli, tweeted, “So grateful for everything. Love you all tons. Blessed to be part of this journey.” While Josh actor Colin Ford simply shared Coleite’s tweet, telling fans to take a moment to read the message regarding season two.

Keep streaming season one of Daybreak on Netflix, who knows? Maybe the show will get picked up elsewhere or Netflix will change their minds. It’s happened before!
