And you thought your high school experience felt like the end of the world.
EW has an exclusive first look at Netflix’s dystopian dramedy Daybreak, centering on an apocalypse-ravaged Glendale, Calif., and the teenagers who’ve taken over. A nuclear blast has transformed adults into brain-dead, bloodthirsty savages, so to survive, the local high schoolers have banded together into Warriors-esque gangs, carving out their own laws and domains. (The athletes and the cheerleaders have their own circles, of course, but so do the 4-H Club and the self-proclaimed disciples of Kardashia.)… Continue to article.

NETFLIX PRESENTS: DAYBREAK, EXCLUSIVE WORLD PREMIERE
Friday, October 4, 2019, 6:45-8:15 PM
Javits Convention Center – Room 1A06
High school isn’t the end of the world… until it is. 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 a** 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. Participants include cast members Matthew Broderick, Colin Ford, Sophie Simnett, Austin Crute, Alyvia Alyn Lind, Jeanté Godlock, Cody Kearsley and Gregory Kasyan; and executive producers Aron Eli Coleite, Brad Peyton and Jeff Fierson.
Austin is set to star as Wesley Fists in Netflix’s upcoming high school apocalypse dramedy series, Daybreak.
“A football star with budding movie star looks and a penchant for swords, Wesley was part of a system that ostracized and terrorized the students beneath him on the social totem pole (like Josh). But when Josh and Wesley meet once again in the apocalypse, Wesley is trying to follow the path of Eastern enlightenment and non-violence.” — Deadline
The series is expected to premiere in 2019.
Austin will be starring in an episode of the new FX series, "ATLANTA," playing the role of "Justin Bieber." The show was created by and also stars Donald Glover - otherwise known by his artist name Childish Gambino - and centers around two cousins in the Atlanta rap scene.
The series is set to premiere on FX this summer.
