SyFy had been developing a Krypton show for a while, but this year, it finally got a series order. The show takes place long before the destruction of the planet, as Superman’s grandfather, Seg-El, fights for his family. There is also a conspiracy from the present day that threatens Kal-El’s legacy.
Now, we know when the show is premiering. KryptonSite has confirmed that Krypton will premiere in March 2018. An exact day and time has yet to be confirmed, but that information should be available sooner than later.
Additionally, KryptonSite has shared a new plot synopsis, breaking down the series’ story and teasing the time travel plot. Check it out below.
Set two generations before the destruction of Superman’s home planet, KRYPTON follows Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe), the legendary Man of Steel’s grandfather – whose House of El was ostracized and shamed. With Krypton’s leadership in disarray, Seg-El encounters Earthly time-traveler Adam Strange (Shaun Sipos) who warns he’s under the clock to save his beloved world from chaos. Fighting to redeem his family’s honor and protect the ones he loves, Seg is also faced with a life and death conflict – save his home planet or let it be destroyed in order to restore the fate of his future grandson.
KRYPTON is from Warner Horizon Scripted Television and is executive produced by David S. Goyer (Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, The Dark Knight Trilogy) through his Phantom Four banner, alongside Cameron Welsh, who serves as showrunner. In addition to Cuffe and Sipos, the show also stars Georgina Campbell (Broadchurch), Elliot Cowan (Da Vinci’s Demons), Ann Ogbomo (World War Z), Rasmus Hardiker (Your Highness), Wallis Day (Will), Aaron Pierre (Tennison) and Ian McElhinney (Game of Thrones). Based on the DC characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, KRYPTON premieres in 2018.
