Everything We Know So Far About Daybreak

 

Daybreak is a Netflix series that was released in October 2019. It is directed and written by Brad Peyton and Aron Eli Coleite.

 

The producers of this series are Michael J. Malone ( ASAP Entertainment) and Bruce Dunn (Lightbulb Farm).

 

So far, only one season with ten episodes has been released. Each episode has a runtime of about 38 - 50 minutes.

 

Daybreak is an adaptation of a comic series by Brian Ralph. The creators pitched in the idea of adapting the comic into a series in July 2018.

 

The idea went by and the cast was decided by October 2018. The shooting started in October 2018 and the whole series was shot by April 2019.

 

Initially, a trailer was released a month before the release of the series. Also, this series was mostly shot in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

 

In addition to all the genres, this series is also included in the list of coming of age and top teenage series.

 

 

Official Announcement And Release Date Of Daybreak Season 2

 

Netflix was requested to have a season 2 for the great series, Daybreak. The next season for this series was most awaited and expected by the people who enjoyed season 1.

 

But it was not exciting when Netflix officially announced season 2 of Daybreak to be canceled.

 

When people thought that it was just not true, the co-creator of the series went forward and confirmed it on social media.

 

He announced that “We learned last week that Daybreak will not be returning for a second season.”  Netflix has canceled so many series so far, and Daybreak is one among them.

 

Even though there was a decent number of people who liked this series, Netflix blames the number of viewers and the covid situation to cancel this series.

 

 

Popularity Details Of Daybreak Season 2

 

People may be waiting for Season 2 of this series because it is so much fun and is one of the most-watched teen dramedy series.

 

While people have already spent time binge-watching the first season, let's look at how much they talk about the second season.

 

Google Trends

Google trends for daybreak season 2

 

As google trends say, the second season of daybreak has been most-awaited and most expected in the year 2019, to be more specific, just after the release of the first season.

 

After that, it's constantly falling. So, I guess people are not very much excited about it.

 

Google Searches

Google searches for daybreak season 2

 

Google Searches tell us how many people are curious about season 2. These people search specifically for season 2 on google thus they are genuine.

 

We do not have an exact figure but it is enough to make an educated guess that people who are actually into the series are not.

 

Globally 27K people search on google and among them, 14K are from the USA. It's not that much exciting as popular shows have much better searches like above 100K or something.

 

Twitter

Daybreak does not have decent Twitter followers. Also, the Twitter account is not active and the last tweet was made in 2019.

 

Through Twitter, fans are trying to make Netflix notice by sending hashtags such as #weneeddaybreakseason2, #savedaybreak, #renewdaybreakseries, and more.

 

Moreover, people have exchanged petitions and signed them to bring this series back.

 

 

Expected Plot Of Daybreak Season 2

 

Daybreak season 1 ended with the great defeat of Principal Burr. Also, our heroes have launched a nuke into the mesosphere.

 

When we are thinking about what will happen next, there’s Josh realizing his love for Sam.

 

Just like anybody else, he approaches her. While everybody is keenly expecting Sam to agree, she does just the opposite.

 

She says she doesn’t feel the way Josh does and it is a NO!! Probably, season 2 would be a series that brings Sam and Josh together or not.

 

Will Josh’s love for Sam sustain? Or is there a new character that comes in between them is the question.

 

Everybody who read the comic of this series and watched the series would surely be able to visualize the characters playing their part.

 

And there are fans who are still expecting Netflix to open the gates for another season.

 

I’m pretty sure that Netflix will come down if there is more push from the fanbase for yet another season and more.

 

 

Online Reactions For Daybreak Season 2

 

The Internet is the best thing that could tell us where anything stands and nothing can be more accurate.

 

Furthermore, the search method is easier and quicker. Come on, let us jump in and see what people are talking about this series online.

There are memes and loves for the existing season one and there are a lot of imaginations over season two.

 

Fans comment on the imaginary plot for the next season of this series in the posts that have the fan-created season two trailer.

 

 

Why There Should Be A Daybreak Season 2?

 

The question is simple and the answer is easy. There should be another season for the fans who are awaiting it.

 

People are already curious about what is going to happen next and what they can expect out of the next season.

 

Also, from what we talked about already, fans are trying to figure out what could possibly happen next and are creating imaginary plots and storylines.

 

When they are so much excited about the series, I think there’s no other reason for another season.

 

Also, it is not fair that Netflix has abruptly canceled the next season. But fans are having their hopes high and are really expecting that there would be another season for this wonderful series.

 

 

Reviews And Rating For Daybreak

 

Daybreak is streaming on Netflix. After being released two years back, this series is still one of the highly recommended series on Netflix.

 

Now let’s see how many ratings the series has gained over these two years.

 

Website Rating
IMDb 6.7/10

IMDb

IMDb rating for Daybreak

 

IMDb has given a 6.7 rating for 10. The reviews have fans who want to kick themselves for not watching this earlier.

 

Even though the rating is quite not big, the reviews prove that there is less hatred towards this series and very few people found it not working for them.

 

Rotten Tomatoes

The average Tomatometer has given a 70% while the average audience score stands by 66%.

 

Again while there are fans excited over the great play by the cast and the storylines, there are people who felt that this series is a repetition or a compilation of something else.

 

Awards & Recognition

The comic became so popular and was recognized. But the series had less popularity than the comic.

 

But the creators cannot agree less that the fanbase and their excitement over the series and their hopes towards a season two can match no award.

 

I think that it is the best award or recognition that a creator could get.

 

 

Production And Development Of The Show

 

The creator of Daybreak started writing the comic in the year 2012. He himself had a realization that this comic was so close to the movie, Ferris Buller’s Day Out.

 

But after being pitched, Netflix approved to produce the series in the year 2018. The production of this series also involves ASAP entertainment.

 

The director and the creators of this series personally are thankful to Netflix and ASAP entertainment without whom the series would have not been produced.

 

Then the development involved choosing the cast and the location for the show which was done and updated by October 2018.

 

The process speeded up after that and boom the show was released just a year after the official announcements.

 

And here we are, expecting another season soon.

 

 

Why Watch Daybreak Season 2?

 

There can be a number of reasons for people to watch this series. When people from different age groups were asked about why they are expecting a season two, there were different answers.

 

A teenager could connect to most of the scenes in the series while a pre-teen could expect what teenage could possibly be about.

 

A person who is good old might get reminded of their youth and feel nostalgic.

 

This series somehow grabs the attention of people of different ages and people who have different interests.

 

This series, in the end, brings in fun, happiness, and motivation to move on in life.

 

So, I think that season two would really be great fun.
