The Superman prequel will return for Season 2.
May 22, 2018
Syfy announced today that freshman drama Krypton has been picked up for a second season. The good news comes ahead of tomorrow's season finale.
The Superman prequel premiered in March with a 10-episode run that, despite mixed reviews, fared well for the cable network. The show has been averaging 1.8 million viewers (Live+3), making it Syfy's most-watched new series in four years.
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.
Look for Season 2 of Krypton in 2019.
Although I wonder about the storyline of people on a planet that's going to explode in a few decades anyway.
Also, they live in a technologically advanced society but it's illegal to believe in life on other planets???
I do enjoy Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Arrow I am the most disappointed in. I watch and just see staged fights like they are phoning it in.
Legends has improved (needs better scripts), Flash is good but does seem to disappoint at times. Supergirl was good for a light hearted show (nor a big fan of the alien bar or main storyline this season).
Gotham has become a great show and I am happy it will be able to end with a proper conclusion (like Fringe was able to do).
Legion is a good bizarre show. Never really got into Runaways. Gifted was ok. And Inhumans was disappointing.
This being a prequel to Superman reminds me that I watch Gotham and that I didn’t realize or consider these to be superhero series at the start. Now I’m deep into it. But I might stop watching this one.
