Lionsgate’s STARZPLAY Announces Summer Release Dates For Season Three of HARLOTS And DEADLY CLASS this July
STARZPLAY have announced that the hit U.S. drama series “Harlots” will return for its eight-episode third season on Friday 11th July with weekly instalments, followed one week later by the box set season one release of the dark high-school, coming of age, series “Deadly Class,” premiering Friday 19th July exclusively on STARZPLAY in the UK.
The official Trailer and Poster for Deadly Class, the 10-part series, which is based on the bestselling 2014 Image Comics graphic novel by Rick Remender and Wes Craig, were also released.
Harlots season three continues to follow the fortunes of the Wells family. Set a year after the dramatic events of season two, Margaret (Samantha Morton) has been sent to America in chains and Lydia Quigley (Lesley Manville) is vanquished and in Bedlam. It seems that the Wells girls can finally free themselves of their mother’s feud, helped by allies such as Lady Fitz (Liv Tyler). But Charlotte Wells (Jessica Brown-Findlay) soon learns that running a lucrative brothel brings enemies as well as friends, including new pimp in town Isaac Pincher (Alfie Allen). Meanwhile Lydia still finds a way to bite, even in her darkest hour.
“Harlots” is produced by Monumental Television and distributed by ITV Studios Global Entertainment.
Created by acclaimed playwright and screenwriter, Moira Buffini (Jane Eyre, Tamara Drewe) and Alison Newman (Eastenders, Call the Midwife) and featuring an all-star cast including Samantha Morton (Walking Dead, Fantastic Beasts), Lesley Manville (Hampstead, Mum) , Jessica Brown Findlay (Downton Abbey, England Is Mine), Liv Tyler (The Lord Of The Rings) and Alfie Allen (‘Game Of Thrones) who joins this season, “Harlots” is a powerful drama set against the vibrant, cosmopolitan backdrop of 18th century Georgian London, offering a bold new take on the city’s most valuable commercial activity – sex.
About Deadly Class
Set in a dark, heightened world against the backdrop of late 80s counter-culture, “Deadly Class” follows the story of Marcus (Benjamin Wadsworth), a teen living on the streets who is recruited into Kings Dominion, an elite private academy where the world’s top crime families send their next generations. Maintaining his moral code while surviving a ruthless curriculum, vicious social cliques and his own adolescent uncertainties soon proves to be vital.
Starring Benedict Wong (“Doctor Strange,” “Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams”), Benjamin Wadsworth (“Teen Wolf”), Lana Condor (“’To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before,” “XMen: Apocalypse”), María Gabriela de Faría (“Yo Soy Franky,” “Sitiados”), Luke Tennie (“Shock and Awe”), Liam James (“The Way Way Back,” “The Killing”), and Michel Duval (“Señora Acero,” “Queen Of The South”), “Deadly Class” is a coming of age journey full of ancient mystery and teen angst.
From Sony Pictures Television and Universal Cable Productions, “Deadly Class” was adapted for television by Remender and Miles Orion Feldsott, who serve as executive producers alongside Joe Russo (Avengers: Infinity War, Captain America: Civil War), Anthony Russo (Avengers: Infinity War, Captain America: Civil War), Mike Larocca (Spy) and Mick Betancourt (USA Network’s The Purge, Shots Fired). Remender, Feldsott and Betancourt share showrunner duties on the series.
