The series stars Benedict Wong, Benjamin Wadsworth, Lana Condor, María Gabriela de Faría, Luke Tennie, Liam James and Michel Duval, and follows Wadsworth’s homeless teen Marcus as he’s recruited to the elite school of Kings Dominion, a secret academy that trains teens to be deadly assassins. There, he finds a found family of fellow outcast teenagers, including To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before‘s Lana Condor.

Here is the official synopsis for SyFy’s Deadly Class:

Based on the graphic novel of the same name comes an unlikely coming-of-age story set against the backdrop of unsanitized 1980s counterculture. A homeless, disillusioned teen named Marcus is recruited into Kings Dominion, a secret academy for the Deadly Arts, where he struggles to find his place among a community of the deadliest characters in the world — literally fighting every day for survival. It is in this struggle he tries to find purpose and family in an unlikely group of outcast misfits who plan to use their skills to really change the world for the better… by breaking every rule there is.

Deadly Class premieres on SyFy on January 16, 2019 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
