Krypton is coming to Syfy in 2018
Thursday, May 11, 2017 - 13:02
2013's Man of Steel was famous for introducing the world to a new grittier, Cavillier Superman. It brought back General Zod, and it gave the world the most robust look at Kal-El's homeland, Krypton, we've ever seen. That world is coming Syfy in 2018.
Set two generations before the destruction of the legendary Man of Steel’s home planet, Krypton follows Superman’s grandfather (Cameron Cuffe, The Halcyon) — whose House of El was ostracized and shamed — as he fights to redeem his family’s honor and save his beloved world from chaos. Based on DC characters, 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). Damian Kindler (Sleepy Hollow) will serve as executive producer and showrunner.
In addition to Cuffe, Krypton 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) with Ian McElhinney (Game of Thrones).
