There won’t be a second season for Netflix’s high school zombie series. The streaming service has chosen to cancel the Dawn TV series after a season of 10 episodes.
The Dawn The TV show stars Colin Ford, Alyvia Alyn Lind, Sophie Simnett, Austin Crute, Gregory Kasyan, Krysta Rodriguez, Cody Kearsley, Jeanté Godlock and Matthew Broderick. Based on Brian Ralph’s graphic novel, the series follows Josh Wheeler (Ford), a 17-year-old high school outcast who searches for his missing girlfriend, Sam (Simnett), in a post-apocalyptic Glendale, California. He is joined by a motley group of misfits that includes 12-year-old arsonist Angelica (Lind) and former Josh high school bully, Wesley (Crute). The group is trying to stay alive among the gang horde of sports villains and cheerleaders turned Amazon warriors, zombie-like creatures called Ghoulies, and whatever this new world throws at them..
The series premiered on October 24 of this year and, it seems, did not attract enough viewers for Netflix to want to order a second season. The streaming service often makes a decision about a show’s fate four or six weeks after its release. Series co-creator and executive producer Aron Eli Coleite revealed that the show was canceled via Twitter.
