Daybreak makes itself known and unique because of its interesting situation amongst the zombie apocalypse. All kids (at least in California) survived the nuke while all adults turned into zombies. Nobody knows how or why this happened, but every kid is trying to survive from the now zombie adults, and kids that have now turned into savages. The main character Josh (2nd from right) tries to entire apocalypse to find his dream girl Sam.
Another thing that makes this show so great is the characters. Josh gets 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). Providing an immense amount of engaging and colorful characters.
