Krypton Gets Early Season 2 Renewal

Superman's grandpa isn't slowing down anytime soon.


Even though the first season of Krypton hasn't ended, Syfy has renewed the Superman prequel series. It will return for Season 2, most likely in 2019, to continue to the adventures of Superman's grandpa, Seg-El.

Its return helps in building out a solid roster of programming for Syfy. In addition to the second season of Krypton, the network has a final season of 12 Monkeys, another year of The Magicians, and new cycles of Happy and the anthology series Channel Zero on the way. In addition to those, adaptations of the comic book series Deadly Class and George R.R. Martin's novella Nightflyers will be debuting on the network.

One major component missing from Syfy's upcoming schedule, though, is The Expanse. It has been announced that the current third season will be its last on the network. Not all hope is lost, though. Amazon is currently in talks to revive the series on its Prime Video streaming service.

Krypton is set on Superman's home planet, two generations before it's destroyed, sending him to Earth. At the center of the series is Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe), Kal-El's grandfather. Along with Adam Strange (Shaun Sipos), he must decide whether to save his planet or let it die in order to ensure his grandson's destiny.
