Is a second season of Deadly Class in development, and if so, when can we expect it to premiere? After the enthralling conclusion to Deadly Class season 1, viewers wondered if a Deadly Class season 2 would ever be made, especially given the show’s immense success.
Additionally, there are still several stories to be told about Rulers Dominion and the eclectic crew of would-be assassins, gang leaders, and cartel rulers. The Deadly Class television series, based on the Rick Remender and Wesley Craig comic book series of the same name, was created for Syfy by Remender and Miles Orion Feldsott and premiered on the network in January 2019.
It is one of Syfy’s most ambitious dramas, starring Benjamin Wadsworth as Marcus Arguello, Lana Condor as Saya Kuroki, Maria Gabriela de Fara as Maria Salazar, Luke Tennie as Willie Lewis, and Liam James as Billy Bennett. It is not, however, the first Syfy series to be cancelled.
While Deadly Class premiered to decent ratings, it was far from the ratings juggernaut Syfy had hoped for. On the other side, Deadly Class maintained solid ratings throughout season 1 and even saw large increases in the days after each episode, with the greatest increases in live+7 ratings occurring toward the season’s conclusion.
Regrettably, that was insufficient to secure a Deadly Class season 2.
Syfy Has Made the Decision to Cancel Deadly Class Following the First Season.
Unfortunately, Deadly Class season 2 will not occur due to Syfy’s decision to terminate the show following season one. This is true despite the fact that Rick Remender has already began writing the season 2 storey.
Following Syfy’s cancellation, Remender and the core cast worked unsuccessfully to court alternative networks, most notably streaming services such as Netflix and Hulu, in order to secure a new home for Deadly Class season 2. Regrettably, no saviour could be identified.
Why Was Deadly Class Cancelled After Only One Season?
Despite the fact that many viewers enjoyed season 1 of Deadly Class on Syfy, the show was cancelled mostly for the oldest TV excuse in the book: the comic book adaptation’s ratings were too low, the network claimed.
As most television viewers are aware, ratings are used to assess how many people are watching a show and which demographics they belong to. If the total number of participants in any group falls below a predetermined level, the event may be cancelled.
While Deadly Class’s ratings were far from the lowest on Syfy, another surprise was that the show is not owned by Syfy but is instead licenced from Sony Pictures Television, a subject of contention.
If a network owns the rights to a mid-rated show, cancelling it may be more difficult; but, if they do not, there is less financial incentive for them to keep it running.
The Story of the Second Episode
Although the characters in Deadly Class season 1 appear to have made life difficult for the students of King’s Dominion, it is likely that their actions during the season contributed to the plot’s continuation.
Given that Deadly Class is a comic book adaptation, it seems likely that Deadly Class season 2 would draw inspiration from the following plot arc, had a second season been produced rather than a third.
Of course, pinpointing exactly what Remender would’ve adapted for Deadly Class season 2 is difficult considering the show’s inclusion of aspects from later comic books.
The climax of “Snake Pit” and the advancement through “Die For Me,” “Carousel” (which would be incredible for Saya lovers), and “Love Like Blood” would make for an intriguing plot arc. Additionally, because Deadly Class finished on a cliffhanger, the immediate challenge for season 2 would be resolving the storey in the interim.
Is Deadly Class Season 2 Ever Going to Return?
Rick Remender announced this week that Deadly Class season 2 will not return, despite his research into alternative streaming providers. When Deadly premiered in the United Kingdom, it was followed by a second season on StarzPlay. The platform is still in its infancy and will not be ready for the second season. Fans have signed a petition urging Netflix to produce a second season of Deadly Class.
The show was discontinued following the second season and will not be resurrected.
What Will We See in Season 2’s Story?
The King’s Dominion Academy teaches teenagers from impoverished backgrounds how to become assassins. This is the narrative of an orphan’s transformation into an assassin. It was in charge of Master Lin. Prior to the start of the second season, this article provides a quick recap and assessment of the synopsis available on Netflix’s website. Along with some extremely personal, profound things about myself that I’d like to share with you in these upcoming, unknown chapters.
