Netflix has unveiled a teaser trailer for their new genre-blending original series, and it looks like it’ll appeal to fans of post-apocalyptic coming-of-age sagas. We have the Daybreak teaser trailer right here, as well as some new images. First, though, from the official press release:
In this post-apocalyptic, genre-bending series, the city of Glendale, California is populated by marauding gangs of jocks, gamers, the 4-H Club, and other fearsome tribes who are kicking *** as they fight to survive in the wake of a nuclear blast (on the night of Homecoming…ugh).
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. This Generation A series (A for Apocalypse! Get it?) is rated TV-MA.
