It was such a long wait for the decision that it doesn’t come as a complete shock.
Look … 2/3 of our #DEADLYCLASS loyal million viewers watch the show over the weekend. FUN FACT: Those numbers don’t help our ratings much. Want to help ensure a season 2? Watch the final amazing episodes live Wednesday nights on @SYFY. RT to help spread the word.👊🏾💕☠️🎤 pic.twitter.com/P7hwajEvlv

Update: Deadly Class couldn’t find a new home so season one is all you’ll get.
Deadly Class will not be moving to a new network. Which is sort of perfect when you think about it. If you want to see what happens after the 1st season you’ll have to buy the comics, which are pretty keen. Thank you to our fans for the huge support. You helped soothe the sting.

Adapted from the graphic novel, the series is from the Russo brothers — directors of the biggest movie in the world, Avengers: Infinity War.
Deadly Class is about Marcus, a teen with a moral code living on the streets , who is recruited into King’s Dominion, a School for Assassins, where the world’s top crime families send their next generations.
Cast: Benjamin Wadsworth, Benedict Wong, Lana Condor, María Gabriela de Faría, Luke Tennie, Liam James, Michel Duval, Henry Rollins, Taylor Hickson, Jack Gillett, Sean Depner and Ryan Robbins.
Deadly Class didn’t air unnoticed. It’s up for a Rockie Award at the Banff InternationalMedia Festival next week in the sci-fi and genre category, alongside the new Doctor Who with Jodie Whittaker.
Lana Condor of To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before films is the deadly Saya, an outcast from one of Japan’s top Yakuza clans.
My loves! I am so honored to have gotten the chance to be a part of such an incredible project #deadlyclass. We became a family and I am forever grateful to everyone who joined us for the wild ride of Kings Dominion. What would you have wanted to see in season 2 ?

Benedict Wong is master of King’s Dominion Atelier of the Deadly Arts.
Rick Remender and Wes Craig’s graphic novel set against the backdrop of late 1980s counterculture.
Deadly Class used the Gabriola Mansion in the West End for its assassins school.
And was regularly seen in Chinatown.
The pilot filmed in Vancouver inside the former Canada Post Building, on a closed block of Cambie Street and the Front Street Parkade in New Westminster, among other locations.
