Is Deadly Class season 2 happening, and if so, when will it release? Hot on the heels of the Deadly Class season 1 finale, fans are wondering if Deadly Class season 2 is going to happen in the future, especially considering the show's popularity as well as the fact that there are still plenty of stories left to tell about Kings Dominion and the misfit group of would-be assassins, gang leaders, and cartel kings.
Based on the comic series of the same name by Rick Remender and Wesley Craig, the Deadly Class TV show was developed for Syfy by Remender and Miles Orion Feldsott, and it premiered in January 2019. Starring Benjamin Wadsworth as Marcus Arguello, Lana Condor as Saya Kuroki, María Gabriela de Faría as Maria Salazar, Luke Tennie as Willie Lewis, Liam James as Billy Bennett, and more, Deadly Class is one of the network's most ambitious dramas to release since their 2015 revamp.
While the Deadly Class TV show premiered to modest ratings, it wasn't the juggernaut that Syfy was perhaps hoping it would be. However, Deadly Class maintained decent ratings throughout season 1 and even saw huge increases in the following days after each episode, even seeing the biggest gains in live+7 ratings towards the end of season 1. But what does that mean for season 2?

Syfy Canceled Deadly Class After Season 1
Deadly Class season 2 isn't happening, unfortunately, as Syfy chose to cancel the series after season 1. This is despite Rick Remender having already started crafting the story for season 2 (via Twitter). It's unclear if the series will be picked up elsewhere at this time, but Remender and the main cast are courting other networks, particularly streaming services like Netflix and Hulu.
Deadly Class Season 2 Story
While it seems that the events of Deadly Class season 1 have left things rather difficult for the student of King's Dominion, the story can indeed go on. Deadly Class is, after all, an adaptation of a comic book series, so it would make sense for Deadly Class season 2 to take inspiration from the next story arc, should another season ever happen.
Of course, it's a bit difficult to narrow down exactly what Remender would adapt for Deadly Class season 2, seeing as parts of later comic issues have already been brought into the fold. But an intriguing story arc would be to wrap up "Snake Pit" and move through "Die For Me", "Carousel" (which would be great for Saya fans), and "Love Like Blood". Plus, seeing as Deadly Class left off on a cliffhanger, seeing that story resolve would be the immediate concern for season 2.
