The first season of Syfy’s Superman prequel Krypton will be added to the catalog of the DC Universe streaming service in 2019.
The live-action drama will join the new platform's library of past DC films and television series, which includes Batman: The Animated Series, The Dark Knight, Superman: The Movie, Constantine, Super Friends, and Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman.
Set two generations before the planet's destruction, Krypton follows Superman's grandfather Seg-El, who seeks to redeem the honor of the disgraced House of El while attempting to protect his home world, and his grandson's legacy, from a threat from the future. While the characters, and the audience, spent much of the season believing that was Brainiac, the finale introduced a twist.
Krypton Season 1 aired from March 21 to May 23 on Syfy. Ahead of the finale, the series was renewed for a second season, to debut in 2019 on the cable network.
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.
