The news broke just days after the Season 2 finale, which pulled in a dismal 350,000 viewers. Season 2 averaged 408,000 same-day viewers per episode, despite the 1.8 million viewers (+3 days for DVR) the show earned throughout Season 1.

Deadline reports Warner Horizon is already looking to bring the DC series to another network, with DC Universe and HBO Max as top contenders. As it stands, Krypton Season 1 is currently available to stream on DC Universe. Season 2 is expected to drop on the streaming service sometime next year.

Krypton followed the adventures of Superman's grandfather Seg-El as he navigated life on the planet, years before its destruction. His journey brought him face-to-face with some of the Man of Steel's most iconic villains, including Brainiac, Doomsday and General Zod.

Unfortunately for fans of the show, Season 2 ended with a series of cliffhangers. Brainiac brought Jor-El to Earth to raise him under the effects of a yellow sun. Nyssa-Vex stole Adam Strange's zeta beam device to find her son, only to encounter Darkseid's parademons. Seg struck a deal with Lobo to track down Brainiac, while Adam Strange finally received his signature jetpack.

Krypton stars Cameron Cuffe as Seg-El, Shaun Sipos as Adam Strange, Georgina Campbell as Lyta-Zod, Elliot Cowan as Daron-Vex, Ann Ogbomo as Jayna-Zod, Rasmus Hardiker as Kem, Wallis Day as Nyssa-Vex, Aaron Pierre as Dev-Em, Ian McElhinney as Val-El and Blake Ritson as Brainiac.
