Supermanless Krypton Show Gets Next Best Thing: Adam Strange

Krypton is the show about Superman's home planet.

Syfy's Krypton has cast a new hero. Oh, you thought it would be Superman? Think again. Shaun Sipos has been cast as Adam Strange. What's interesting about Krypton is that it's a Superman-focused show without Superman. Instead, Krypton focuses on his grandfather Seg-El.

Strange is an archeologist suddenly teleported from Peru, Earth to the planet Rann through a "Zeta-Beam". Upon his arrival, he is attacked by one of the planet's predators and rescued by a dark-haired woman called Alanna. Called on to protect the planet from extraterrestrial threats using Rann's technology, Strange grew to care for the planet and its inhabitants, especially Alanna. Eventually, the effects of the beam wore off, automatically returning Strange to Earth at the exact point of departure, but not before Sardath had given him a schedule of beam firings allowing him to periodically return to the planet.

No release date has been set for the show, but Chris McCumber, the President of Entertainment Networks for NBCUniversal, which owns Syfy suggests the show could appear in the first quarter of 2018.
