When it comes to Halloweekend, there are two kinds of people - those who have an elaborate costume planned, who will be out partying until dawn every night, and those who would rather stay at home watching scary movies and handing out candy to the neighbourhood kids. No matter which one you are, we guarantee that you're going to need a pretty good Netflix selection to make it through your Sunday recovery, and lucky for you, they just released the perfect show. Daybreak on Netflix Canada was created by Canadian Brad Peyton.
Netflix's newest release is a series called Daybreak, and it's basically Zombieland meets Ferris Bueller's Day Off. The show is about a group of high-school students, living in a post-apocalyptic world. For some reason, all the adults in this world turned into something called "ghoulies", leaving the teenagers to care for themselves.
As most humans would, the teens break up into Mad Max-style gangs and begin to battle one another to ensure their own survival. Amidst all the fighting, there's obviously just the right amount of drama and romance mixed in as well.
The series just hit Netflix on Thursday, but Twitter users are already raving about how awesome the show is.

If you're not already convinced on why you should watch the show, we've got a few more reasons for you. Firstly, it was co-created and executive produced by Brad Peyton, who just so happens to be from Newfoundland.
Secondly, the show features Riverdale actor Cody Kearsley, who also happens to be Canadian! Other actors in the show include Matthew Broderick, Austin Crute, and Colin Ford, just to name a few.
All 10 episodes of the new series hit Netflix today, and they range from 38-50 minutes in length. It may take you more than one sitting to binge-watch the show, but from what the reviews are saying so far, it's worth it.
