Daybreak will be available to stream on Thursday. If you’ve been on the fence about it, get ready to binge-watch. Here’s why you need to watch Daybreak.

Daybreak is one of those shows that you’re either going to like or love. It’s a series that wants to make you laugh, while bringing plenty of drama, gore, and character development. Make sure you make it the show you binge-watch next weekend.

Not been too certain about tuning in? It can be hard to decide whether it’s going to be over the top ridiculous instead of meta, woke, and just downright fun. After getting the chance to watch the first five episodes thanks to Netflix, I can tell you that you’Il find it as the latter.

Here are my five top reasons to binge-watch Daybreak the minute that it’s released.

5. It doesn’t take itself seriously

If you want a show that is full of laughs, this is the one for you. Daybreak is described as Mad Max meets Zombieland meets Ferris Bueller, and it really does suit that description. I’d add a little The 100 in there, too.

While there are certainly some serious themes mixed in, this is a show that wants to make you laugh. It wants to entertain. That feeling you got from the teaser trailer? It’s the feeling you’ll have throughout the series.

4. The show will take you on a wild ride

For those who are ready for a show to take them on a wild ride, Daybreak is the one. This is a series that is ready to entertain and it will rip the rug from under you just as you think you know what it’s all about.

By around episode four, everything you thought you knew will change. The tribes you thought had been set up will adapt. And that’s a great thing. You’ll be kept on your feet throughout the series.

3. There’s a character for everyone to connect to

Every show says it has a character for all, but sometimes doesn’t deliver. Daybreak really will have someone for all. There’s a character everyone will be able to connect to in some sort of way.

What’s great is that the tropes are used but twisted. This series isn’t afraid to give you some of the most stereotypical characters going. At least, that’s what it seems like. Then suddenly, those characters become something else.

2. It breaks down the fourth wall

Do you love a show that makes the audience one of the characters? That’s what you get from the very beginning of Daybreak. It obliterates the fourth way entirely, pulling you in.

The best thing is that this isn’t just one character breaking the fourth wall. While it starts with one character narrating their story, you’re soon pulled into other characters’ storylines.

1. There’s some excellent character development

At first, you see a character through the eyes of one and then you’ll see that same character in a different light though another. This is a great way to develop the characters, fully.

That “perfect girl” stereotype is flipped on its head. You get to hear what others think of the “perfect girl” throughout the story, adding more layers to those that are often seen only on the outskirts.

One of the best things to allow development is that there isn’t a lead character as you get in it. Sure, Colin Ford’s Josh is classed as the lead character for billing purposes, but Angelica, Wesley, Turbo, Mona Lisa, Eli, and many more will prove their need to be leads within the story.
