Superman Prequel “Krypton” Ordered to Pilot

Syfy has ordered the pilot for “Krypton,” the sci-fi drama from David S. Goyer that centers on Superman‘s grandfather.

Goyer, who wrote the pilot with Ian Goldberg, is set to executive produce.

Set two generations before the planet’s destruction, the project centers on the Man of Steel’s grandfather, whose House of El was ostracized, as he fights to redeem his family’s honor and save his world from chaos. “Krypton” has been in development since at least late 2014.

Hailing from Warner Horizon Television, the “Krypton” pilot will be directed and co-executive produced by Colm McCarthy (“Peaky Blinders”). “Sleepy Hollow” veteran Damian Kindler will serve as showrunner.

“‘Krypton’ is one of the most iconic stories in the comic book universe,” said Bill McGoldrick, executive vice president of scripted content for NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. “In the talented hands of David S. Goyer and the DC Entertainment/Warner Horizon Television team, this exciting Syfy project will take viewers back to Superman’s home to show how the timeless legend began.”
