SYFY isn’t the most popular right now after canceling another show, The Expanse, which didn’t perform as well as they wanted it to but still had an extremely passionate fanbase. Thankfully those fans were outspoken and helped convince Amazon to swoop in and save that series, and now SYFY has promising new shows like Nightflyers and Deadly Class to look forward to.
For San Diego Comic-Con 2018 this past weekend SYFY released official trailers for both of these new series. You can read more about the shows and watch both of these trailers below.
Here’s a brief synopsis for Nightflyers:
Set in the year 2093, Nightflyers is a psychological thriller that follows a team of scientists aboard the Nightflyer, the most advanced ship ever built, as they embark on a journey to find other life forms. Their mission takes them to the edge of the solar system, and to the edge of insanity, as they realize true horror isn’t waiting for them in outer space—it’s already on their ship.
The show is based on the 1980 novella of the same name written by Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin. It stars Eoin Macken, Gretchen Mol, David Ajala, Bronte Carmichael, Phillip Rhys, Sam Strike, Maya Eshet, Angus Sampson, Jodie Turner-Smith,Miranda Raison, Gwynne McElveen, Andrea Dolente, and Brían F.

And here’s one for Deadly Class:
Deadly Class follows a disillusioned teen recruited into a storied high school for assassins. Maintaining his moral code while navigating a ruthless curriculum, vicious social cliques, and his own adolescent uncertainties may prove fatal.
