DAYBREAK SEASON 2
In the season one we see that the principal is defeated but his last words gave a message that real threat is yet to come, we also see how Sam rejects the love of Josh and takes the place of principal and becomes the leader. The fans were desperately waiting for the second season but unfortunately, on December 2019 it was officially announced via twitter that part 2 will not come and this led to a wave of disappointment among fans, they started a petition to release the season 2, however, the chances of that happening is next to impossible. The major reason behind this decision is that this unique and creative series did not get much attention and recognition, the marketing for this series was not effective and thus the second season was canceled. It has to be taken over by another publisher for the series to continue which seems to be very difficult.
There are a lot of unanswered questions after season 1 what was the real threat? are there any chances left for Josh and Sam to reconcile? how would Sam be as a leader? would she come out a villain or as a hero? guess we will never know, this is just like the ending of Phir Hera Pheri.
