'Deadly Class' season 2: Release date, plot, cast, trailer, news and everything about Syfy's latest hit
Chances of a season 2 for 'Deadly Class' is highly likely so here's all you need to know as creators are confident about the renewal.
The explosive season one finale of 'Deadly Class,' calls for season 2 and while the show's creator Rick Remender is pretty "confident," about the renewal, no official announcement has been released.
The fanbase of the show grew slowly but steadily, and by the penultimate episode, the number of viewers had multiplied exponentially, take it from the executive producer himself.
#deadlyclass took a huge jump up in the ratings last night. Thank you to our brilliant fanbase for coming out to watch live. Don’t miss the finale next week, it is incredible, and we’ll all be live tweeting again.— Rick Remender (@Remender) March 14, 2019
IM SO PROUD OF YOU ALL MY LOVES!!! The cast and I love you so much xx thank you so much for the support... it truly goes a very long way. Tune in next week for the craziest finale you’ve seen on tv 🖤 #Deadlyclass @DeadlyClassSYFY https://t.co/XsfHTblkyW— Lana Condor (@lanacondor) March 14, 2019
The finale wrapped up and fans on social media were soon talking about what to expect from season 2. Many hoped the fan favorite characters we lost would come back, but that is yet to be seen. The good news is that the show is based on the graphic novel by Remender himself and Wesley Craig, so we can get an insight into what may unfurl when season 2 is released. The assurance of a renewal also comes as 'Deadly Class' has effectively replaced 'The Expanse' on Syfy, and ranks fifth among Syfy's other current shows, according to the site. Syfy's low performing shows, including 'Van Helsing' and 'Wynonna Earp,' have already been renewed, so hopefully 'Deadly Class' will be too.
If Syfy renews the series for Season 2 in the next few months, we can expect the new season to premiere on the network sometime in early 2020.
'Deadly Class,' revolves around a teenage orphan named Marcus Lopez Arguello, who is infamous for burning down the boys hostel. Season 1 focused on his enrollment into a school of assassins called King's Dominion where he hones his killing skills among children of mob bosses and mass murderers. He also gets looped into a crazy love triangle as he falls in love with Saya Kuroki, while her best friend, Maria, falls in love with him. Maria goes to the extent of killing her abusive boyfriend, Chico, who belongs to a Mexican Cartel family. His dangerous family, who also adopted Maria looks for his body, but it is nowhere to be found as Marcus' enemy, Chester Fuc*face Wilson, decapitates Chico's head to blackmail Marcus and his gang. The finale ended with Marcus killing 'Fuc*face,' but ended up getting caught by the Cartels as they triumph over Master Lin, the headmaster of King's Dominion. Catching Saya with Chico's head, standing alongside Marcus, the Cartels shoot Lex (Marcus' friend) and the gang has nowhere to escape.
If season 2, is renewed, then according to comics, with Volume 8 releasing in April, the plot reads that the "crew returns to Kings Dominion to discover things have changed in their absence. The program has changed. Master Lin's schemes revealed. Betrayal. Mystery. The secret of the catacombs beneath the school. A reckoning for the corrupt. Our friends try to hold everything together as Freshman finals loom ever closer..."
Remender, serving as the co-executive producer, has ensured the comic is translated on screen almost as accurately. So rest assured, Marcus and his "crew," will survive and so will Master Lin, despite being severely wounded in the season 1 finale.
Hinting that the work on season 2 has already started, Remender tweeted;
'Deadly Class' stars Benjamin Wadsworth as Marcus Arguello in the lead. Benedict Wong plays the King’s Dominion headmaster Master Lin, and Lana Condor shines as Saya Kuroki, the head of the Kuroki Syndicate and Marcus' love interest. María Gabriela de Faría plays Maria Salazar, who is friend-turned-enemy to Saya and who ruthlessly murders her abusive boyfriend Chico, leader of the Soto Vatos syndicate played by Michel Duval.
Luke Tennie, who plays Willie Lewis, went MIA in the season 1 finale but is likely to play a bigger role in season 2, since he is the leader of the First World Order, despite being a pacifist at heart. Liam James will play Marcus’ friend Billy Bennett, but we may not be seeing Lex, played by Jack Gillett, who got shot in the finale.
Taylor Hickson will reprise as Petra, Sean Depner as Viktor, and Siobhan Williams as Brandy Lynn. We can look forward to guest appearances as well.
The coming-of-age drama is based on the comic book series by Rick Remender and Wesley Craig and adapted for TV by Remender and Miles Orion Feldsott, along with Anthony and Joe Russo (Avengers: Infinity War), Mick Betancourt, Adam Targum, Mike Larocca, and Lee Toland Krieger.
Remender is also best known for his work on other Image Comics such as 'Fear Agent,' 'Black Science' as well as Marvel Comics' Uncanny X-Force.'
