Syfy has released the trailer and key art for the second season of their Superman prequel Krypton, which is set to premiere state-side on Wednesday June 12th at 10/9c. E4, who continue to hold rights to the series on this side of the pond, have not yet set a UK premiere date for season two.
Krypton is set two generations before the destruction of Superman’s home planet and follows Seg-El, the legendary Man of Steel’s grandfather, as a young man who fights to save his home planet from destruction. The drama series is produced by Warner Horizon Television and stars Cameron Cuffe (The Halcyon), Blake Ritson (Da Vinci’s Demons), Shaun Sipos (Major Crimes), 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).
The show’s second season brings us back to a changed Kandor, locked in a battle over its freedom and its future. General Dru-Zod (Colin Salmon) is now in control. He’s on a ruthless mission to rebuild Krypton according to his ideals and to secure its future by conquering the universe. Faced with a bleak outlook, our hero, Seg-El, attempts to unite a dispersed group of resisters in an effort to defeat Zod and restore hope to their beloved planet. Their chance at redemption is threatened however, by their opposing tactics, shifting alliances and conflicting moral boundaries – forcing each of them to individually determine how far they’re willing to go in pursuit of a better tomorrow.
