The star of Netflix's 'To All The Boys I've Loved Before' is coming to television in a new bad ass role.

Lana Condor has wasted no time winning over audiences this summer in Netflix's To All The Boys I've Loved Before. The 21-year-old actress wowed as Lara Jean Covey in the teen rom com, but you can expect her next TV role to have a completely different vibe.

Lana Condor stars as Saya Kuroki in the upcoming Syfy series Deadly Class, set to land on the network in 2019. The series premiere is a fair bit away but Lana's character already looks like a serious bad ass. Syfy released a new teaser that showcases her skills and fans are officially hype to catch Saya in the new series.

Based on Rick Remender's graphic novels of the same name, Deadly Class follows young killers in training at a school for elite assassins.

Per the series description: "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." Deadly Class is "set against the backdrop of late 80s counter culture".

The new show sees The Russo brothers (Avengers: Infinity War) at the helm as executive producers and promises a "coming of age story like you've never seen."

As for Lana Condor's character, Saya, the comics portray her as a skilled fighter. She also rides a sick looking bike in the series. Speaking at San Diego Comic Con, Lana said of her character, "Saya is so badss and so incredible and I'm beyond thrilled to play her."

Lana confirmed via Twitter that she'd recently had her first official shoot day for Deadly Class. We're officially on the edge of our seats waiting for the show and 2019 can't come fast enough.
