Freeform Renews ‘Siren’ For Season 2. Syfy Releases Trailer For Russo Brothers ‘Deadly Class’
US network Freeform has handed out a 2nd Season renewal to freshman series ‘Siren‘ today, whilst Syfy also dropped a trailer for the Russo Brothers upcoming adaptation of the comic book ‘Deadly Class‘.
‘Siren‘ is set in the little coastal town of Bristol Cove, known for its legend of once being home to mermaids. When the arrival of a mysterious girl proves this folklore all too true, the battle between man and sea takes a very vicious turn as these predatory beings return to reclaim their right to the ocean. The series stars Alex Roe (‘The 5th Wave’) as Ben, a bright marine biologist who finds himself drawn to a mysterious new girl in town, Ryn, played by Eline Powell (‘Game of Thrones’), who is a strange young woman with a deep dark secret.
‘Siren‘ is currently airing on Syfy in the UK.
‘Deadly Class’ is a coming-of-age drama set in a high school… except this is no educational establishment. This is Kings Dominion School for the Deadly Arts, the most brutal high school on earth, where the world’s top crime families send the next generation of assassins to be trained. The story is set against the backdrop of late 80’s counter culture, and centres around Marcus Lopez (Benjamin Wadsworth – ‘Teen Wolf’, ‘Dad vs. Lad’), a young boy whose grades suck and is failing ‘Dismemberment 101’. The jocks – who happen to be the children of Joseph Stalin’s top assassin – are hassling his friends, and the girl he’s crushing on has a double-digit body count… At this school, murder is an art, killing is a craft, and the dagger in your back isn’t always metaphorical.
Along with Wadsworth, the cast also includes Benedict Wong (‘Doctor Strange’, ‘Marco Polo’, ‘Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams’) as headmaster of the School for the Deadly Arts, Master Lin. Marcus’s schoolmates include Lana Condor (‘X-Men: Apocalypse’) as Saya, María Gabriela de Faría (‘Yo Soy Franky’, ‘Grachi’) as Maria, Luke Tennie (‘Shock and Awe’) as Willie, Liam James (‘The Killing’, ‘Psych’) as Billy, and Michel Duval (‘Unforgivable’, ‘Queen of the South’) plays Chico.
The series is based on Rick Remender & Wes Craig’s comic book and being shepherded by ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ directors, the Russo Brothers.
‘Deadly Class‘ airs on Syfy in the UK in 2019. There is currently no UK broadcaster, but we’ll let you know if and when that changes.
