Krypton season 2 trailer: It’s a bad day to be a hero
SYFY has released the official trailer for the upcoming second season of Krypton, highlighting the arrival of many classic Superman villains that Seg-El must face in order to save the future of his home planet. Featuring our first look at Emmett J. Scanlan as the interstellar mercenary Lobo, you can check out the video on the player below along with a behind-the-scenes featurette.
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.
The series is scheduled to return on June 12. Viewers can catch up on Krypton at SYFY on demand which includes SYFY.com and the SYFY App.
