The first season of SYFY’s DC Comics series is coming home just in time for season 2. Krypton: The Complete First Season lands in March.
The Last Son
Before Kal El came to Earth and became the hero known as Superman, there was Krypton. A scientifically minded world where hubris led to complete annihilation. Or… did it? From SYFY, Krypton follows a fresh plot that also includes some Superman mythos favorites.
What if Superman never existed? Set two generations before the destruction of Superman’s home planet, Krypton follows a young Seg-El, 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 fights alongside Earthly time-traveler Adam Strange to redeem his family’s honor and protect the ones he loves while saving the future of his legacy from DC Super-Villain Brainiac.
Cool stuff in there. I’ve never seen the show, but it seems like it might be worth watching from the fan response. With season one in the bag, season two is set to open up this spring. And for Superman fans looking to play catchup, the DVD and Blu Ray release of the show’s inaugural run should hit the spot.
March 5th, 2019 is the date for both versions, which will pack in the full first season of the show, and a couple of cool extras.
