Syfy Gives ‘Krypton’ A Season 2 Renewal

Just a day before it caps off its first season, Syfy announced Krypton will return for a sophomore run. Not surprising given it’s the network’s best series premiere in more than three years since Defiance. It has averaged 1.8 million viewers L3 per week to date.

Krypton is set two generations before the destruction of Superman’s home planet. The series follows Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe), the legendary Man of Steel’s grandfather, as a young man who is faced with a life and death conflict – save his home planet or let it be destroyed to restore the fate of his future grandson. In Season 1, with Krypton’s leadership in disarray and the House of El ostracized, Seg found himself in a difficult position: redeem his family’s honor and protect the ones he loves, while being challenged by familiar DC characters Brainiac and Earthly time-traveler Adam Strange.
