It’s the end of the world as we know it in Netflix’s Daybreak, and 17-year-old Josh Wheeler feels… pretty chill, actually. The post-apocalyptic comedy dropped its first teaser trailer on Monday, giving us our first look at Brian Ralph’s comic book series in action.
Daybreak is described as a “genre-bending series” set in Glendale, Calif., which is now “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. 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.”
Josh (Supernatural‘s Colin Ford) serves as the audience’s fourth wall-breaking guide through this strange new world, where he and his motley crew — including a tween pyromaniac (Revenge‘s Alyvia Alyn Lind) and a bully-turned-samurai (Atlanta‘s Austin Crute) — will face whatever Mad Max-style dangers come their way.
