Deadly Class series won’t be moving to a new network
Following the cancellation of Syfy’s Deadly Class and the search for a potential new home. Comics creator and co-showrunner Rick Remender took to Twitter to announce that the series adaptation has failed to find a new network.
“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.” Remender said.

Based on the Image Comics graphic novel, the adaptation was developed by Miles Orion Feldsott and Rick Remender — who created the comic series alongside illustrator Wes Craig.
Deadly Class is set in a dark, comic book world against the backdrop of the late ’80s counterculture. The story follows a homeless teen that is recruited into a storied elite private school where the world’s top crime families send their next generations. Maintaining his moral code while surviving a ruthless curriculum, vicious social cliques, and his own adolescent uncertainties soon prove to be vital. The drama is described as “a coming of age journey full of ancient mystery and teen angst.

The series was a co-production between Sony Pictures Television Studios and Universal Cable Productions.
