Daybreak was an odd creature that managed to stand out in a crowded landscape of post-apocalyptic zombie dramas. That probably had something to do with the fact that it wasn't a drama, but a surprisingly clever comedy built upon a solid narrative and some of the wittiest dialogue on TV last year.
Based on the graphic novel of the same name, it was an ambitious production that still felt rather personal, and that's because the characters were so well-crafted that you were drawn into their dramatic arcs in spite of the show's exaggerated tone.
Its cancellation was disappointing considering that Netflix is known for its unique selection of programming and for giving second chances to those that show potential but haven't quite amassed the fanbase. And yet Daybreak had amassed quite the passionate fanbase - who would no doubt adore the idea of a sophomore follow-up to Josh's apocalypse adventure.
The show thrived on subverting our expectations and its concluding moments did just that, turning the narrative we'd spent all season following completely on its head. Oh to think what a second season could have looked like.
