TV show description:
Based on the DC characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, the Krypton TV show is a Superman prequel series from executive producers David S. Goyer and Cameron Welsh. Unfolding 200 years before the destruction of Superman’s home planet, the superhero drama centers on his grandfather, Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe).
A staunch, yet hopeful advocate for equality, 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.
Once one of the great scientists of Krytpon, Seg’s own grandfather, Val-El (McElhinney), was key to much of its scientific progress. He returns, after a fourteen-year absence, as an integral player in staving off the threat to Krypton.
A time-traveling human, Adam Strange (Sipos) winds up stuck on Krypton. There, he ends up mentoring Seg-El. Adam is willing to pull out all the stops to make sure the world’s greatest hero — the Man of Steel — comes into being.
As the head of Kandor’s Military Guild, Jayna-Zod (Ogbomo) has made it her life’s mission to protect the people on all fronts. As the mother of Lyta (Campbell), Jayna dearly desires to leave behind a legacy of resolute duty.
Although Lyta-Zod wants to live up to her family’s reputation, she also feels the pull to help and heal the people of Krypton. As she comes into her own, Lyta must choose between fulfilling society’s expectations of her and beating her own path.
A Sagitari bound to Lyta, Dev-em (Pierr) is proud to be a protector of Kandor. To him, her mother Jayna is the epitome of a warrior. Since he has loved Lyta since childhood, he is dangerously jealous of Seg-El.
As the youngest daughter of the House of Vex, Nyssa-Vex (Day) is an astute lawmaker, with keen political acumen, and an easy confidence in her place among Kandor’s ruling class. Although she skillfully forges alliances, she learns about true friendship, thanks to Seg.
With Krypton’s leadership in disarray and the House of El ostracized, Seg must redeem the family honor and protect his loved ones, while facing challenges from all angles.
