Netflix’s 'Daybreak' Takes Place in California — but It Wasn’t Filmed There

By

The very first shot in the trailer for Daybreak (Netflix’s new post-apocalyptic dramedy series) shows us where the story takes place: Glendale, Calif. There’s even a shot of the sign for Glendale High School and another one that shows the famous Hollywood sign in post-apocalyptic shambles. So you might think the show was filmed in California. But you’d be wrong. Where was Daybreak filmed? You might be surprised.

Where was Netflix's Daybreak filmed?

According to Ruidoso News (a local outlet of the USA Today network), principal photography for Daybreak was shot in Albuquerque, N.M. Shooting started back in November 2018 and wrapped up in April 2019. The production employed 260 New Mexico crew members, three New Mexico actors and about 3,000 New Mexico background talent. Good news for the people of New Mexico!
