Zod joined the cast in season nine. Zod is first mentioned in season five’s "Arrival", when two of his disciples arrive on Earth attempting to turn the planet into Kryptonian utopia. In the episode "Solitude", Brainiac attempts to release him from his Phantom Zone prison, where it is revealed that Clark’s biological father Jor-El placed Zod’s spirit after destroying his physical form. In the season five finale, Zod is successfully transferred into Lex Luthor’s body, after Clark unknowingly releases him from the Phantom Zone. Clark eventually pulls Zod’s spirit out of Lex’s body using a Kryptonian crystal of his father’s in the season six premiere.
In the season eight finale, the Kryptonian purple orb, which was used in the season seven finale to destroy the Fortress of Solitude and remove Clark’s powers, appears at Luthor Mansion and releases Zod in physical form. In the season nine premiere, it is revealed that when he was released from the orb, Zod was also accompanied by hundreds of other Kryptonians, many of which were scattered across the globe. In addition, none of them were given the powers that typically accompany Kryptonians under the yellow Sun.
In an interview, executive producers Brian Peterson and Kelly Souders explained that this version of Zod will be different than the one who appeared in prior seasons. The execs classify this incarnation as "Major Zod", as opposed to his typical "General Zod" identifier, and reveal that throughout season nine "the venomous side of Zod rises because he experiences a few key betrayals with our beloved characters". Blue is signed on for two years for a long-term story arc.
