Deadly Class can’t find a new network after cancellation, RIP

Cancelled Syfy show Deadly Class has failed to find a new network to pick it up

It’s official: Deadly Class is dead. For real.

Following its cancellation at Syfy, the makers of Deadly Class were keen to crack on and start hunting for a new network to take in the show. However, it sounds as though the hunt was in vain.

Comics creator and co-showrunner Rick Remender took to Twitter this week to announced that the series has failed to find a new home.

“Deadly Class will not be moving to a new network,” he wrote. “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.”

Oh well. You can’t win them all.

Deadly Class was based on the Image Comics comic book of the same name by Remender and Wesley Craig, and developed for TV by Remender and Miles Orion Feldsott. It starred Benedict Wong, Benjamin Wadsworth, Lana Condor, María Gabriela de Faría, Luke Tennie, Liam James and Michel Duval.

Set in the late 80s, the show revolved around King’s Dominion, an elite private academy where students are trained to become master assassins.

It was produced by Sony Pictures Television, Universal Cable Productions, in association with Gozie AGBO, Chipmunk Hill and Getaway Productions. Anthony Russo and Joe Russo (Avengers: Endgame) served as executive producers alongside Remender, Feldsott, Mick Betancourt, Lee Toland Krieger, Mike Larocca and Adam Targum.
