Krypton Season 2: Everything You Need To Know
SYFY’s Krypton may have just ended its first season with the gangbusters “The Phantom Zone,” but that doesn’t mean we don’t have a few clues about what to expect in Season 2. Obviously there were a ton of questions left over from the season finale. But from casting to premiere date, we’ve got everything you need to know about Krypton Season 2, right here.
(And as a note, we’ll update this page as more info becomes available.)
Will there be a Krypton Season 2?
Heck yeah there will! Krypton was renewed for a second season before the Season 1 finale aired. Though the show hasn’t dominated in live ratings, the audience increased dramatically through streaming and repeat airings, making it a solid hit for the SYFY channel.
And though this doesn’t necessarily impact SYFY’s decision, it probably helped that the series was picked up by E4 internationally, meaning it will continue to gain an audience worldwide.
When will Krypton Season 2 air?
Cool your jets, dude! Eat my shorts! The show just finished airing, so it’ll take a little while to write scripts and film. Still, we do know that SYFY tends to release their shows on a yearly schedule, so don’t eagerly await the show’s return this fall. It probably won’t be back until 2019; though month-wise, expect it to probably show up some time in the Spring.
I want to catch up on Krypton Season 1… Is It streaming?
SYFY shows are tricky to track down, to be honest. Right now if you’re a DirecTV subscriber you can watch the show there. Otherwise, you can rent or own the show on Amazon Video or iTunes. But the best place is probably the SYFY app, as most shows end up there, versus other platforms.
Actually, just tell me what happens in Krypton Season 1!
Well, you cheapskate, I recommend you check out our Krypton podcast, After Krypton, which recaps every episode of the show. But the short version is that Krypton takes place hundreds of years before Superman was born. His grandfather, Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe) finds out from a time traveler named Adam Strange (Shaun Sipos) that something is coming to destroy Superman’s timeline.
Over the course of the first season they battle Brainiac (Blake Ritson), a time traveling General Zod (Colin Salmon) and accidentally release Doomsday.
How does Krypton Season 1 end?
Boy, you’re real into spoilers, huh? In a shocking twist, Seg-El beats Brainiac, but ends up getting sucked into the timeless dimension of The Phantom Zone as well. Because of that, Zod takes over Krypton — and possibly the universe. Meanwhile, Adam Strange is trapped in one of Brainiac’s bottled cities, one that looks a lot like a city from Earth. He discovers there’s a statue of General Zod there. The Doomsday escapes. Yikes!
Who is coming back for Krypton Season 2?
We don’t have total confirmation, but despite Seg-El, uh, “dying,” he’ll definitely be back. And we’d expect most of the cast and behind the scenes folks will be back, too. That includes Sipos, Salmon and even Ritson. Also Nyssa-Vex (Wallis Day), Lyta-Zod (Georgina Campbell), Jayna-Zod (Ann Ogbomo), Dev-Em (Aaron Pierre), Kem (Rasmus Hardiker), Val-El (Ian McElhinney), Jax-Ur (Hannah Waddingham), and maybe even Daron-Vex (Elliot Cowan), despite him dying in a skiffer crash.
I mean, nobody stays dead on this show for long.
What will happen in Krypton Season 2?
Well for sure we’ll have to find out where Adam Strange is, and what’s up with the bottle city he’s stuck in. Is he in the future? The past? Somewhere else?
Then there’s Zod’s plans… He’s essentially erased Superman and changed time, so that’s a big deal.
And we mentioned Doomsday, an unstoppable killing machine, escaped, right? That’s not great.
Beyond that, there are questions about how Seg will get back, and what the deal is with Nyssa-Vex’s baby Cor-Vex, who doesn’t exist in the comics.
Will new DC Comics characters show up in Krypton Season 2?
Undoubtedly. We’ve already speculated that a tease of the planet Cygnus 4019 could lead to the reveal of New Gods, and maybe even Darkseid.
Beyond that, we’ve heard the voices of a few of Adam Strange’s friends, Sardath and Alanna. And the showrunners have already teased that we may get Hawkgirl and some Green Lanterns.
With Zod planning universal domination, the show is wide open for bringing in DC characters from all over the cosmic side of the comics.
