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 case was decided in 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 of 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 cancelled.


When people thought that it was just not true, the co-creator of the series, Aron Coleite 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 cancelled so many series so far, and Daybreak is one among them.


Despite the fact that this series had a respectable number of fans, Netflix decided to discontinue it due to low viewership and the competitive environment. 




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 for daybreak season 2


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


And even though you can see the search for the term “Daybreak Season 2” peaked around October 2019, it has been plummeting since then. 


It can be due to the lack of updates or any news from the creators and Netflix cancelling the show, the fans are losing interest in the show overall and only a handful of people are left who are still waiting for the new season. 


Google Searches

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 24K people search on Google and among them, 12K are from the USA and 2K from the UK. 


It’s not that exciting as popular shows have much better searches like above 100K or something.



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 get Netflix’s attention 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, Josh is 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 some fans 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.



People are going crazy on Reddit about this series. They are still signing petitions to bring back the series, however, there is fake news spreading related to the release date of this show.


But Netflix hasn’t announced renewing the series.



There are questions on Quora enquiring why Netflix has cancelled the show and a fan has replied that they feel bad about it.


The series is also being talked about for being one of the best series to watch on Netflix and an addictive one too.



There are memes and loves for the existing season one and there is a lot of imagination 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 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 abruptly cancelled the next season. But fans are having their hopes high and are expecting that there would be another season for this wonderful series.



Daybreak Ratings and Reviews


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.

Metascore 54/100



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 at 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.

But after being pitched, Netflix approved to production of 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.
