Fans are already wondering whether Deadly Class Season 2 will happen on Syfy after the inaugural season concluded on March 20. Although Syfy has not officially renewed Deadly Class for Season 2, the showrunners and fans are upbeat about prospects of another season.
Deadly Class Season 1’s ratings and viewership numbers in Live+Same Day have been satisfactory. Season 1 averaged 0.14 in the 18-49 demographic and 0.396 million viewers. The viewership numbers in live+7 have also seen impressive gains, suggesting that the series’ fanbase will continue to grow.
Fans were delighted when showrunner Rick Remender recently hinted on Twitter that Deadly Class Season 2 was already in the works.
While we await word from Syfy on the future of the drama series, we bring you everything we know so far, including possible release date, cast members, when the trailer will likely drop, and what to expect of the plot from Season 2 if Syfy confirms the show for another season.

This post will be updated with additional information and news about the series.
Will there be Deadly Class Season 2?
Although Syfy has not officially renewed the series for Season 2, the warm audience reception and growing ratings bode well for the future of Deadly Class.
Deadly Class currently ranks fifth among Syfy’s shows, with an average of nearly 400,000 weekly viewers. Deadly Class outranked other Syfy shows that the network has renewed, such as Wynonna Earp, Killjoys, and Van Helsing.
Fans are therefore hopeful that Deadly Class will soon be renewed for Season 2.
Deadly Class Season 2 release date
The first season of Deadly Class premiered on Syfy on December 30, 2018, and concluded on March 20, 2019. If Syfy renews the series for Season 2, hopefully, in the next few months, we can expect the new season to premiere on the network sometime in early 2020.

Deadly Class Season 2: What is the series about?
Based on the comic series by Remender and Craig, Deadly Class is set against the backdrop of the counterculture of the ’80s, and follows Marcus Lopez Arguello (Benjamin Wadsworth), a homeless, inner-city kid. He attends King’s Dominion, a private elite school that is the institution where many of the world’s leading crime families send their next generation to prepare for their future roles as crime lords.
At King’s Dominion, Marcus struggles to survive the tough and unconventional school curriculum and the vagaries of the ruthless adolescent cliques that dominate social life at the school.
Taylor Hickson (Petra) promised fans in an interview with Metro that the showrunners have big plans for Season 2 if the show is renewed.
