Class Is Cancelled, Vancouver-Filmed ‘Deadly Class’ Not Renewed For Another Season

Vancouver-filmed teen drama series Deadly Class just got axed from cable television by Syfy channel. The show, based on a comic book series of the same name, is set in the late 80’s and centers around a private school for the off spring of crime families.

Deadly Class stars Benedict Wong, Benjamin Wadsworth, Lana Condor and Maria Gabriela de Faria. The rest of the cast has featured a slew of local actors like Liam James as Billy Bennett,  Taylor Hickson as Petra, Tom Stevens as Chester “Fuckface” Wilson, Erica Cerra as Miss De Luca and Christopher Heyerdahl as Master Zane. Some famous guest stars have included Henry Rollins, French Stewart and Ice-T as himself.

In addition to filming Deadly Class in Vancouver, Lana Condor has also filmed the first two movies in the To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before series in town. The third is slated for filming in in Vancouver and New York City. Similarly, Kelowna’s Taylor Hickson who plays Petra in Deadly Class has filmed other shows in Vancouver such as Aftermath and a new one called Motherland: Fort Salem.

Sony, the production company and distributor behind the series, is in search of finding the dark and edgy series a new home. While the show gets shopped around the cast and fans have taken to social media to try and create buzz around it with #DeadlyClass and #SaveDeadlyClass

Many are hoping the likes of Netflix, Hulu or Amazon will take the show on. This wouldn’t be the first time a Vancouver-filmed show has been cancelled and brought back to life by Netflix as both Lucifer and The Killing were reincarnated by the streaming giant.
