Last year, the new Krypton TV show wound up as the highest-rated Syfy TV series. Will the superhero drama soar to new heights, or will its sophomore installment prove to be its kryptonite? Will Krypton be cancelled or renewed for season three? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
Based on the DC characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, Krypton is a Superman prequel from executive producers David S. Goyer and Cameron Welsh. The Syfy TV series stars Cameron Cuffe, Shaun Sipos, Georgina Campbell, Colin Salmon, Ann Ogbomo, Aaron Pierre, Rasmus Hardiker, Wallis Day, Blake Ritson, and Ian McElhinney. Unfolding 200 years before the destruction of Superman’s home planet, the story centers on Kal-El’s grandfather, Seg-El (Cuffe). Seg is faced with the starkest of choices. He can either save Krypton, or allow its destruction, in order to protect the fate of his future grandson. Season two kicks off with a changed Kandor fighting for its freedom, and General Dru-Zod (Salmon) is in control.
