Netflix has released a new trailer for its upcoming Original series Daybreak, revolving around a group of schoolkids getting caught up in the post-apocalyptic after a nuclear bomb goes off.

The series features Ferris Bueller’s Day Off‘s titular truant Matthew Broderick as the school’s principal, and the series protagonist Colin Ford stating the film’s iconic line: “And you thought we weren’t going to have any fun with the apocalypse, shame on you.” The visuals above showcase an average day-in-the-life at Glendale High School, only to reveal the world outside is destroyed and its people have gone savage.

Netflix’s official description reads:

“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 ass 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.”

Check out the trailer above and catch Daybreak when it debuts October 24.

In other entertainment news, rumors speculate Robert Downey Jr. will return as Iron Man in upcoming Black Widow film.
