Netflix has a new apocalyptic dramedy coming called Daybreak. The story revolves around a teenage cast in a post-apocalyptic zombie-filled world. News is still scant, but Netflix has just made a cast announcement in relation to the new series. And it looks like Matthew Broderick is set to return to school!

In Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Matthew Broderick did anything he could to get out of school. In the process, he had to thwart his headmaster on several occasions in order to maintain the ruse that he was at home, sick. Now, in Daybreak, it seems that Matthew Broderick is heading back to school — but this time he will play the role of the school principal and not that of the truant student.

According to Deadline, Matthew Broderick will play the role of Principal Burr in Daybreak.
