Daybreak: Season 1 Videos

Tv Season Info

High school isn't the end of the world... until it is. In this post-apocalyptic, genre-bending series, the city of Glendale, California is populated by marauding gangs of jocks, gamers, the 4-H Club, and other fearsome tribes who are kicking ass as they fight to survive in the wake of a nuclear blast (on the night of Homecoming... ugh). Following an eclectic group of survivors as they navigate this strange and treacherous world, DAYBREAK is part samurai saga, part endearing coming-of-age story, and part Battle Royale.

With whipsmart, self-referential dialogue and well-rounded characters that win our hearts, the show is entertaining and grounded despite its over-the-top premise.

What makes Daybreak work inasmuch as it does is the counterpoint between what the characters' lives were like before the blast, and what they're living for now... It's the show's action and social commentary that falls short.
