Netflix's Newest Teen Comedy Series Stars A Canadian Who You'll Recognize From "Riverdale"
Every so often, Netflix manages to come out with a show that absolutely blows audiences away. Some of their content is too horrible to bear, and a good chunk of it is quite mediocre, so when we get something that's good, people rave about it endlessly. Daybreak on Netflix Canada combines Mad Max and Ferris Bueller's Day Off.
One of the latest trailers to come out of the Netflix realm is for an upcoming series called Daybreak, about a group of students at Glendale High School, who, after experiencing a nuclear blast on the night of Homecoming, band together into tribes to take on the post-apocalyptic future.

The series is based on a comic book series of the same name by Brian Ralph and will follow the students as they attempt to navigate this new and strange world while still dealing with the comical issues that are a part of high school.
Daybreak stars Matthew Broderick (Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Godzilla) as the principal of Glendale High, as well as Krysta Rodriguez (My Bakery in Brooklyn, Trial & Error), Colin Ford (Captin Marvel, We Bought A Zoo), and Gregory Kasyan (Badsville, The Loner).
Also joining the Daybreak cast is none other than 28-year-old Canadian actor, Cody Kearsley. You may recognize Kearsley from his role as Marmaduke "Moose" Mason on the hit teen drama Riverdale, or as Josh in the series Spiral. In Daybreak, the British Columbia born star will be playing Turbo Pokaski, a super athletic high school jock that's more than ready to take on the post-apocalyptic world.
All 10 episodes of the Netflix original series will be available for your viewing pleasure on the streaming service as of October 24. If you want to learn a bit more about the hilarious teen comedy, you can check out the trailer below!
