Daybreak has surprised everyone with its fun and fresh take on the apocalypse. Now it needs a second season to continue the pop-culture referencing series.
There’s no doubt about it, Daybreak needs to be renewed for a second season. Netflix should make the decision right away.
Let’s be honest, none of us really knew what to expect with the series. It was described as a post-apocalyptic world that was like Mad Max but had a bit of “American Ninja Idol” thrown in. Who would have thought we’d get a show that would offer a Mad Max meets Ferris Hueller series that would have us laughing from start to finish?
While it was certainly hilarious throughout and had plenty of pop culture references, these aren’t the only reasons to renew a series. It needs heart, character development, and a story that we can connect to. Daybreak has it all.
We all have our favorite characters, right? I bet you thought Josh or Sam Dean would be yours. Hey, you may have thought they’d be mine. In the end, Wesley and Angelica were the ones that shone throughout the series, but not on their own. They were excellent characters for their storylines with others in the series.
The writers were on point from start to finish. While it started off as a fun journey in the apocalypse world, we got this intriguing form of storytelling that allowed almost every character get a chance to tell their own story. I’m still waiting for Mona Lisa’s point of view of all this, which is another reason we need a second season.
Very few shows are willing to take these sorts of risks, but they need to. Daybreak did more than create a fun TV show. It had the weekly installment feel but through a Netflix format. You can talk about individual episodes because they were all distinct in their own right. Whether it was the use of subtitles for Turbo’s story or the way Wesley had someone narrate his story, each episode stands out individually, offering that water-cooler chat once more.
Now that more people are finding out about the show—this is definitely one of those word of mouth ones—there’s no doubt Netflix should have plenty of reasons to renew the series for a second season.
