Kings Dominion, like any other school, has its set of teen romances, detentions, cliques and bullies but also has a rigorous curriculum. Marcus is an outcast, who befriends a group of similar misfits. "It's a cold, cruel world and you can't survive it without a family. Even if they are liars and murderers," says Marcus in a voiceover.

Lana Candor stars as Saya, a student and member of the Kuroki Syndicate, according to Entertainment Weekly. Benedict Wong, María Gabriela de Faría,  Luke Tennie, Liam James and Michel Duval make up the rest of the cast, writes Comicbook.com.

Deadly Class was adapted for the small screen by Remender and Miles Orion Feldsott, who have executive produced the project along with the Russo Brothers, Mike Larocca and Mick Betancourt. Remender, Feldsott and Betancourt also serve as the showrunners for the series.

The show will debut on SYFY in 2019.
