Bad news for fans of the fledgling assassin school series “Deadly Class”: the series will not be picked up by a new network following its cancellation by Syfy.

The creator of the Image Comics series which the show is based on, Rick Remender, took to Twitter to deliver the bad news on Tuesday that the series would not return for a second season on a new network. He encouraged fans hooked on the show to continue following the story in the comics themselves.

“Deadly Class” premiered on the Syfy Channel in January, where it ran for a single season of 10 episodes before being canceled in June. The show’s creators promised to shop the show to new networks, including streaming services like Netflix and Amazon, but it was to no avail.

The series was set in the late 1980s and followed a young new student at King’s Dominion, a secret school where elite crime families send their children to be trained as assassins. The cast included Benedict Wong, Lana Condor, Benjamin Wadsworth, Liam James and Taylor Hickson. It was produced by Remender, Lee Toland Krieger (“The Age of Adaline”) – who directed the pilot episode – and the Russo Brothers (“Avengers: Endgame”).

The complete series of “Deadly Class” can currently be streamed on the Syfy Channel website for anyone with a cable package. Remender and artist Wesley Craig’s comic series began publication in 2014 and is currently on issue #38, with seven collected volumes also available.
