Krypton has some new company. Deadline reports Paula Malcomson (pictured) and Blake Ritson have joined the upcoming Syfy TV show.
From Man of Steel writer David S. Goyer, the prequel drama “will follow Superman’s grandfather — whose House of El was ostracized and shamed — as he fights to redeem his family’s honor and save his beloved world from chaos.” The show stars Cameron Cuffe as Seg-El and Georgina Campbell as Lyta Zod.
On Krypton, Malcomson will be playing “Charys, the matriarch of House El. Charys helps her son Seg navigate the treacherous pitfalls of Kandor City, their Kryptonian home embattled with oppression and revolt.”
Meanwhile, Ritson has been cast as Brainiac, a “parasitic, hyper-advanced alien android of immense intelligence” who is one of Superman’s oldest enemies.
Krypton is slated to premiere on Syfy in 2018.
