Critic Reviews for Deadly Class Season 1

All Critics (36) | Top Critics (10)

Deadly Class isn't about to make perfect sense, or for the most part, even imperfect sense. Its intentions, however, take on a certain nobility in due time.

Top Critic

For now, Deadly Class is failing to live up to its potential. It's messy and hollow. It's all a front.

Jan 16, 2019 | Full Review…

High school may have felt like a never-ending hellscape to many, but "Deadly Class" gives little motivation to watch by making onlookers experience the unpleasantness all over again.

Top Critic

I like the idea that these would-be killers - like pretty much all high-schoolers trying on different identities - are also poseurs.

Mar 20, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

If the first season is any indication, Deadly Class should be here to stay for a long time. Wild, crazy, & violent - it feels like it was ripped from the comic pages.

Apr 30, 2019 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

There is potential, but with too much emphasis on melodrama tropes, and villainous characters that lack charm, the pilot episode leaves much to be desired.

Mar 22, 2019 | Full Review…

A brutal and fairly well-made finish to a strong and mostly impressive first season.

Mar 20, 2019 | Full Review…

Deadly Class is one that I will continue to watch.

Mar 20, 2019 | Full Review…

Deadly Class feels smart, stylish and cool despite its scary violence... it's a show that will ring the new year in with a rebel yell.

Feb 12, 2019 | Full Review…

Deadly Class asks what it takes to change the status quo, but its answer so far is not particularly revolutionary.

Feb 5, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Young-psychos-in-training series has violence, language.

Jan 24, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

In a perpetually crowded television landscape for original scripted series, Being the Absolute Most probably doesn't hurt Deadly Class' chances of standing out. If nothing else, the show's provocative tone is in line with its source material.

Audience Reviews for Deadly Class: Season 1

  • Oct 09, 2020
    The description above doesn't hit the mark for a spooky teen show. First I need to say I'm not a teen. People I know that love this show are not teens. Secondly, I wouldn't put it in a category for "spooky". "Spooky" would not be a label I would use for this particular series. I can't believe they cancelled this series 🤨 I saw it when it first came out. I really thought another network or streaming service would've picked it up. Maybe if it had more of an advertising wheel, it really could have been a catalyst for the series! This show is a f**ked up punk version of "The Boys" before there was "The Boys" It's only one season but well worth the watch! If you want more you will have to get the comics....

    an absolutely gripping masterpiece with thee meanest cliffhanger known to man. Save them Netflix!!!!

    I thought the whole show was phenomenal. It was so perfectly crafted and I'm beyond upset that they were canceled. I started a new petition for anyone still interested in the renewal of Deadly Class Links- New Petition: Old Petition:

    Se veía que tenia potencial, pero viniendo del canal Syfy, se sabia que iba a estar cancelada tarde o temprano. Este canal es un asco, cancela todo a su paso. Mi personaje favorito es Petra, la amo con toda mi alma. Y esta serie mereció mas temporadas. Una pena.

    This is why critics shouldn't be able to participate in rating works based on pop culture fiction. They're in over their heads and don't have enough cred in the space. This show is awesome and the user ratings back that sentiment.
  • Mar 31, 2020
    It's such a good show I actually found out about it but I saw someone's edit and so I tried to figure out what the show is called and I watch season one and it's such a good show it just sucks that they're not gonna make a season two like im very sad like how could they do that to us😭😭🥺 how could you leave such I cliffhanger like I wanna know what happens....I guess I'll never know🥺
  • Feb 04, 2020
    This tv show was one of the best things to ever be on tv and it was cancelled by Syfy for no reason. Deadly class is amazing!
  • Nov 26, 2019
    Would be great to see how these characters develop, but SyFy cancelled the series. The acting was great, the visuals were good for a TV series, the 80's soundtrack was awesome, viewership seemed to be there, the story line was a bit choppy, but could have developed ... I mean, what does it take to save a series that the audience loved?
  • Sep 30, 2019
    This new take on hero/villain struggle, is a fresh and welcome change from the mundane and played out status quo that has been filling the small screen since the beginning. The cast is vivacious and shows a good mix of all the ingredients needed for a teen flick including romance/bromance/revenge/clique/competition. After having stuffed myself binge watching season 1, Im ready for my 2nd helping... so when do we get our season 2?

    Perfeita. Sem defeitos
