KRYPTON: New Premiere date and Synopsis3 min read
We have already got a exciting look at SYFY’s Superman prequel : Krypton a while back. Now a new, detailed series description in the form of a new synopsis arrives alongside a premiere window.
After few months of anticipation from the DC fandom , SYFY has finally spoken up on the release month of the Superman sequel. Though we do not have a fix on the exact date , Krypton is set to premiere in March 2018. Syfy revealed the premiere window alongside a new, more detailed description for the series :
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 am a big Superman fan and it is too early to judge this show , but from the synopsis , the show’s desperation to connect with the last son of Krypton is too damn high. Maybe things might turn out to be quite good once the show premieres but for now I am going to hold on to this obvious judgement of mine. What do you think ? Was there any chance this show could have been better without connecting Superman ? Could this have been better with the focus on a young Jor-El and the politics of krypton ?
