With Superman prequel-series-with-a-time-travel-twist Krypton unleashing its sophomore season Wednesday night, fans have another reason to tune in beyond witnessing firsthand a very bad day for “The Grandfather of Steel” Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe). SYFY has confirmed development of a spinoff series for the “Main Man” himself… the biggest “bastich” in the universe… the one fans are the most eager to meet: Lobo (Emmett J. Scanlan). While details are scarce at this point, the series will be executive produced by writer Cameron Welsh and stems from Warner Horizon Scripted Television.
Now let’s be clear: it’s not that Zod (Colin Salmon), Brainiac (Blake Ritson) or Doomsday are anything to sneeze at, but it’s the “Main Man” fans have been talking about the most. From the looks of the following character profile trailer, Lobo doesn’t have a lot of time for politics or power struggles or family drama: he’s here to do a job, collect his pay… and possibly strange Adam Strange (Shaun Sipos) with Seg’s intestines, depending if Lobo can squeeze it into his schedule…
Here’s a look at SYFY’s first official trailer for the return of Krypton, as well as the titles for the first five episodes of season 2, which once again puts the spotlight squarely on the villains, with Zod now holding the reigns on Krypton and Seg-El looking to rally a resistance to take back their home planet and save Krypton’s future. But with other forces at play and different personal agendas slowly being revealed, can our hero save his planet – and himself – in time?
What if Superman never existed? Set two generations before the destruction of Superman’s home planet, “Krypton” follows Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe), the legendary Man of Steel’s grandfather, as a young man who fights to save his home planet from destruction.
Season 2 brings us back to a changed Kandor, locked in a battle over its freedom and its future. General Dru-Zod (Colin Salmon) is now in control. He’s on a ruthless mission to rebuild Krypton according to his ideals and to secure its future by conquering the universe.
Faced with a bleak outlook, our hero, Seg-El, attempts to unite a dispersed group of resisters in an effort to defeat Zod and restore hope to their beloved planet. Their chance at redemption is threatened however, by their opposing tactics, shifting alliances and conflicting moral boundaries – forcing each of them to individually determine how far they’re willing to go in pursuit of a better tomorrow.
