Set two generations before the destruction of Superman’s home planet, KRYPTON follows Seg-El, 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 who warns he’s under the clock to save his world from chaos. Fighting to redeem his family’s honor and save his home planet or let it be destroyed in order to restore the fate of his future grandson.
It is being reported that Krypton has been cancelled by Syfy after two seasons. The sad news comes just two days after the drama's sophomore finale, which now acts as its series ender.
The Superman prequel premiered last year with a 10-episode run that, despite mixed reviews, fared well for the cable network. Ratings in Season 2 did not fare as well, however, dropping in numbers by almost half.
Set on the titular planet 200 years before the birth of Kal-El, aka Superman, Krypton follows his grandfather Seg-El. He is the son of a disgraced scientist whose time travel research has cost the family their standing in society. With the House of El having fallen from grace, a power struggle ignites between the planet's elite classes. Things get worse when a hero arrives from the future with bad news regarding the family's bloodline.
