Syfy's 'Deadly Class' Season 2: Fans call for another installment, creator Rick Remender "confident" the show isn't over
The explosive finale is a call for season 2 and we need to know what happens next to Marcus, Maria and Chico's decapitated head
The ultimate fallout between Maria Salazar's (María Gabriela de Faría) and Saya Kuroki's (Lana Condor) friendship, coupled with Marcus Lopez's (Benjamin Wadsworth) indecisiveness, Chester 'F**kface' Wilson's (Tom Stevens) death, and Lex's (Jack Gillett) apparent murder already read as an intense ending, but it was only made more baffling by the cartels in the finale, as Marcus held on to Chico's decapitated head. With gasps and unpleasant surprises, fans are obviously call for a second season. It is very much needed.
Based on a graphic novel of the same name, 'Deadly Class,' is bound to take a darker turn and that is exactly what fans want. Season 1 boasted sadistic dialogues, a failed threesome, an evident love triangle, graphic disembowelment, major killings, and sex with animals. When the show first premiered on Syfy, it had modest ratings, but the numbers for the penultimate episode as well as the finale multiplied exponentially.
The obvious question now is whether the show is getting renewed for season 2. There hasn't been any official announcement on such lines but the novel's creator, as well as the show's executive producer Rick Remender, is assured, 'Deadly Class' will be renewed. On March 13, Remender took to Twitter to proclaim he is confident about the renewal.
His response to a fan who called for season 2 was, "I'm so confident, I'm already breaking the story." The show set in the 1980s Reagan era follows a group of high school kids who are trained to be killers. Leading the pack is protagonist Marcus, an orphan teenager who used to live on the streets and wanted by the police for setting his orphanage home on fire and killing all the boys in it.
Marcus is recruited by Master Lin (Benedict Wong) to the secret school called King's Dominion, referred to by fans as "Hogwarts for the assassins," in the pilot episode and that's how the show begins. Marcus' new life entails new attention and new learnings among the villains and the killers. If season 2 is taking place, then there is so much to look forward to, right from Lex's fate. He was shot, but did he die? Marcus and Maria have guns pointed at them, so will the cartels shoot them as well?
'Deadly Class' has effectively replaced 'The Expanse' on Syfy, and ratings suggest they have a wide fanbase. 'Deadly Class' currently ranks fifth among Syfy's other current shows, according to the site, and has about 402,000 weekly viewers. Syfy's low performing shows, including 'Van Helsing' and 'Wynonna Earp,' have already been renewed, so hopefully 'Deadly Class' will be too.
