Netflix’s official synopsis for Daybreak makes clear that this isn’t your usual high school dramedy or post-apocalyptic thriller for that matter. The series finds 17-year-old high school outcast Josh searching for his missing girlfriend Sam in post-apocalyptic Glendale, California. He is joined by a ragtag group of misfits including a pyromaniac 12-year-old, Angelica, and Josh’s former high school bully, Wesley, now turned pacifist samurai. Josh and the group try to stay alive amidst the horde of Mad Max-style gangs (evil jocks, cheerleaders turned Amazon warriors), zombie-like creatures called Ghoulies and everything else this brave new world throws at him.
