Krypton renewed for season two at SYFY
SYFY announced today that they will be picking up Krypton for a second season. This news comes right before the Season 1 finale, which airs this Wednesday, May 23, at 10/9c.
Krypton is SYFY’s most-watched debut season since 2014 and the most-watched season for any scripted series on the network since 2015’s Defiance. The series has averaged about 1.8 million viewers a week, breaking records for the network.
Set two generations before the destruction of the legendary Man of Steel’s home planet, Krypton follows Superman’s grandfather (Cameron Cuffe, The Halcyon) — 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 Seg-El name is both a nod to Superman co-creator Jerry Siegel and a reference to John Byrne’s 1980s miniseries, “The World of Krypton.” Cameron Cuffe is set to play Seg-El along with Georgina Campbell as Lyta Zod.
Krypton stars Cameron Cuffe, Georgina Campbell, Elliot Cowan, Ann Ogbomo, Rasmus Hardiker, Wallis Day, Aaron Pierre, Ian McElhinney, and Shaun Sipos.
Based on DC characters, Krypton is executive produced by David S. Goyer (Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, The Dark Knight trilogy). Cameron Welsh (Ash vs Evil Dead) will serve as executive producer and showrunner.
Krypton is expected to return in 2019. Viewers can catch up on Krypton at SYFY on demand which includes SYFY.com and the SYFY App.
