SyFy has scheduled its Superman prequel Krypton to release in March 2018. The exact date hasn’t been announced yet. Therefore, it is not certain when the series will premiere during the month.
The news was shared by KryptonSite, and it provided a new synopsis teasing Seg-El’s sacrifice: either to protect his home or play a part in restoring the destiny of his future grandson Kal-El.
As per the summary of 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.
This is going to be the second prequel TV series by DC Entertainment. Fox’s Gotham, just like Krypton, is based in its own universe separate from the extremely popular Arrowverse on The CW. Krypton has been written by Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice writer David S. Goyer under his Phantom Four banner. He is the co-producer along with Cameron Welsh (Ash vs. Evil Dead) who is also going to be the series’ showrunner.
Krypton’s cast includes Cameron Cuffe, Georgina Campbell, Elliot Cowan, Ann Ogbomo, Rasmus Hardiker, Wallis Day, Aaron Pierre with Ian McElhinney.
