The Superman-Less Superman Show Krypton Gets A Release Date

The SyFy show comes to Earth March 21, 2018.



Source: SyFy

With origin stories all the rage now, the story of KryptonSuperman's home planet, will debut on SyFy starting March 21, 2018. It'll take place two generations before the destruction of the planet, which was the only interesting thing about the planet anyway. The show, which won't feature Superman, will instead feature his grandfather Seg-El.

SyFy's official synopsis is below.

"Set two generations before the destruction of Superman's home planet, KRYPTON follows Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe), 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 (Shaun Sipos) who warns he's under the clock to save his beloved world from chaos. Fighting to redeem his family's honor and protect the ones he loves, Seg is also faced with a life and death conflict – save his home planet or let it be destroyed in order to restore the fate of his future grandson.

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") through his Phantom Four banner, alongside Cameron Welsh, who serves as showrunner. In addition to Cuffe and Sipos, the show also 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") and Ian McElhinney ("Game of Thrones"). Based on the DC characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, KRYPTON premieres in 2018."

I haven't been impressed by the trailers for "Kypton." Everything is filmed in darkness, and it look like zero imagination was used in trying to develop what an alien civilization would be like.

Yeah, but on the other hand SYFY has been putting out some top notch work. It's sad to say I have to watch this, because I have to know if SYFY can still churn out crap. :deadpool

I thought the trailer looked pretty cool. The days of the Silver Age spandex-clad scientists on bright-n-shiny Krypton with their miniskirt-wearing wives are outdated and somewhat silly by todays standards. I roll my eyes at the grim-n-gritty thing, if that's what this is, but I'll definitely check this out to see what its about.

This statement is all I need to stay away from this series.

As long as they churn out Sharknado movies, you don't have to worry about the quality of their movies. :D

This gives me hope that it won’t be anything like the cringe-worthy Supergirl CW show.

What I saw early one suggests they lifted the production design straight from MoS, which is not a good thing IMO.

And they finally found a concept less interesting to me then Gotham before Batman. Krypton long before Superman was born. With his granddad Seg-Way.

I would have like a DC space series like LEGION, but not something about a pre-explodey planet Krypton.

Its surprising how many Superman "fans" don't know that Krypton has a wicked history. There was some serious "Game Of Thrones" type shit going on generations before Jor-El was born. In the 70s both "Action Comics" and "Superman" had backup features that ran for years telling these tales. If this show mirrors any of that this could be well worth a look.

I know about that stuff. I just don't care at all. Krypton is important to me only through the actions of the survivors, mainly Superman, Supergirl, Power Girl, Zod, Faora, and a few others. Basically, to me it starts getting important the moment it ends.

A Krypton "Prequel" film which would have dealt with the events surrounding the destruction of Krypton snd baby Supes rocketing to Earth wouldn't have been s bad idea.

All I could tell from the trailers that the scenery and costumes were black, blacker, and blackest.

I'm afraid an LSH series would be just as generic sci-fi as Krypton seems to be, though.

Most of my Silver Age Kryptonian history comes form the "World of Krypton" and "Krypton Chronicles" mini-series.

Oh, I wasn't talking a LSH series, but rather a LEGION series, the Vril Dox/Captain Comet/Strata/Lady Quark/Lobo/Stealth/Phase and others variety, the snarky one. And concentrate on making that way, rather than a simple generic show. That's a problem many shows have....it just comes down to the vision the show runner has for the show and its tone, and the skill the writers have in carrying that vision out.

Of course they did. Goyer is one of the showrunners.
