Talk about a prequel. Ever wanted to know more about Superman’s grandpa?
Krypton, DC’s latest superhero television show, was announced way back in 2014, but is finally set to hit airwaves this March. The show will chronicle the adventures of Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe), who would go on to become Superman’s grandfather. Krypton is not tied to any existing timeline or continuity, so anything goes.
From Syfy’s press release:
What if Superman never existed? Set two generations before the destruction of Superman’s home planet, “Krypton” follows Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe), the legendary Man of Steel’s grandfather, who is 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. With Krypton’s leadership in disarray and the House of El ostracized, Seg finds himself in a difficult position. He must redeem his family’s honor and protect the ones he loves while being challenged by familiar DC characters Brainiac (Blake Ritson) and Earthly time-traveler Adam Strange (Shaun Sipos).
Krypton premieres March 21, 2018 on Syfy and stars Cameron Cuffe as Seg-El, Georgina Campbell as Lyta Zod, and Ian McElhinney as Val-El.
