During its panel at New York Comic Con, Syfy announced the premiere date for the upcoming original drama series Deadly Class.

Set in a dark, comic book world against the backdrop of late '80s counter culture, a disillusioned teen is recruited into a storied elite private school where the world's top crime families send their next generations.
