Now, granted, a lot of people are talking about Krypton because they are asking, "Why do we need a show about Krypton? We already know that $#@! blows up." However, what you might not know is that (spoiler alert) there are some time travel shenanigans going on, so... anything could happen.
So this version of Krypton, with super-people leaping about like crazed grasshoppers, disappeared. It was replaced within a few years by a version that resembled “The Jetsons,” a 1950s-style super-scientific future of non-super people with flying cars, robot police and houses that made dinner for you.

“Krypton” relates the backstory of Superman's family, jumping back 200 years to his grandfather Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe) and a surprisingly rigid class system that finds the El family downtrodden, outcast, and – clued in by Earth-born time-traveler Adam Strange, a familiar figure to DC Comics aficionados ...
You might spot a cape on Krypton, but the DC Comics series on Syfy is mostly devoid of superheroes — despite the fact that the legacy of Planet Krypton is one of society's most recognizable crusaders. Instead, the show hops two generations back in time to tell the stories of the families who raised those ...
KRYPTON 10 p.m. on Syfy. These days we're going so deep into superhero origin stories that the actual superheroes aren't even in them. This new series is set on Krypton, but the man who becomes Clark Kent is nowhere to be found; instead, it follows his grandfather, Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe), some 200 ...
Gotham, Asgard, Wakanda: for many superheroes, their home is as important an element of their mythos as their super powers or rogue's gallery. For Superman, one of the longest-running superheroes in the game, that's Krypton — a technologically advanced, utopian planet orbiting a red sun, destroyed ...

Look! Up in the sky! It's a bird, it's a very slow moving prequel to “Superman,” called “Krypton,” premiering on the SyFy Channel on Wednesday, March 21. Cameron Cuffe stars as Seg-El, grandfather of Kal-El, who won't even be born for another 200 years, much less don his blue Superman long johns, ...
It's two centuries ago, and Krypton is grim, totalitarian and sectarian. The El family is ostracized. Seg-El meets time-traveling Adam Strange (Shaun Sipos), who tells him he must make sure that his grandson, Kal-El/Clark Kent/Superman, is born. Does he save Krypton or let it be destroyed to save his future ...

The trivia ...
Since it was first announced, Syfy's upcoming series Krypton has had an uphill climb.

While Smallville was the story of a pre-Superman Clark Kent with “no tights, no flights,” ...
Set two generations before the birth of the Man of Steel and the destruction of his homeworld, SYFY's Krypton will explore the (ahem) untold story of Kal-El's grandfather, Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe).

I will start off by saying if you didn't like Man of Steel, you maybe possibly won't have a good time with SyFy's Krypton. But that doesn't mean it isn't a good enough show on its own, because it does have promise. Fans of the current CW slew of DC Comics based shows may find this one right up their alley, ...
2:00–3:00 p.m, Room North 200A Krypton Special Video Presentation and Q&A — The never-before-told story of Superman's ancestors, set two generations before the destruction of his home planet, follows Superman's grandfather, Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe) as he's faced with a life or death conflict – to save ...
Syfy's new series Krypton will air on March 21, telling the story of Superman's home planet before the Man of Steel was even a twinkle in anyone's eye. Cameron Cuffe plays the young Seg-El, Superman's grandfather, and spoke to SFX about how his character differs from the superhero we all know.

Let's just put it this way: you won't miss that there's a Krypton launch. I promise you that. But if you look at each of the Syfy shows, we want to make sure there's an event around each one. Krypton, for the fans of Superman and the fans of DC Comics, that will be an event. Nightflyers is another one—the first ...

Before Superman donned the tights and cape, he was a baby on his home planet of Krypton. Famously, it was only upon Krypton's destruction that Superman's father, Jor-El, placed his infant son (then called Kal-El) in an escape pod and sent him to Earth. SYFY's new series Krypton, which premieres on ...

Obviously, it's not a matter of copying the comics, but it's certainly easier than coming up with everything from scratch. KRYPTON, however, starts with a blank slate for the most part. KRYPTON is about Superman (AKA Kal-El)'s grandfather Seg-El and his quest to redeem the El family name 200 years before ...
The latest trailer of the upcoming prequel series "Krypton" confirms the show will cover the story of Superman's family.

The last few trailers for Syfy's Superman prequel show Krypton haven't done a very good job explaining what the point of the series is supposed to be.

Since its brooding teaser trailer, SYFY's Krypton has teased DC fans with the possibility that Superman could be erased before he was ever born. Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe), Superman's grandpappy (as they are called on Krypton), must contend with present-day Brainiac (Blake Ritson) and Adam Strange ...

KryptonSite has learned a title for the second episode of the upcoming Syfy series Krypton. Krypton Episode 2, which we assume will be airing on March 28 unless we get two episodes airing on the premiere night of March 21, is called “House of El.” So, just like how KryptonSite took 17 years to finally have ...
Dev-Em, a familiar face from the comics who appeared in Zack Snyder's Man of Steel, gets his close-up in one of a new round of promotional photos in support of Krypton, Syfy's forthcoming Superman prequel. In the most recent iteration from the comics, Dev-Em was a criminal who became a follower of ...
Superman won't wonder what life would have brought him on Krypton, now that his wife, sister, daughter, and destiny have been revealed.

SyFy has slated its Superman prequel series Krypton for a March 2018 release. An exact date has yet to be revealed, so it's not entirely clear when the series will drop in the month.

"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 ...
This is also the first adaptation of Superman not to feature him in any way, there will no mention of Kal-El at all. The aesthetic is heavily influenced by what we saw in Man of Steel, from the colour scheme of Krypton itself, to the design of the House of El crest, to the overall texture of the costumes and sets.
SYFY's investment in production paid off with its latest originals The Expanse and The Magicians , both well received by fans. However, for some reason, DC Comics readers seem lukewarm about Krypton even though the new trailer looks amazing.
Things are not looking good for Superman's grandfather in a new teaser for SYFY's Krypton, a show that explores a time long before the planet's destruction and the Man of Steel crashed-landed on the Kent farm. Said grandpa, Seg-El, is played by Cameron Cuffe, who narrates the teaser in a broodingly ...

With Krypton's ...
The time-traveling Superman show Krypton will document the planet's long and storied history in the context of Kal-El's family, which means that — in addition to opening the floodgates to a different angle on the DCEU — the show will build historical links between Superman's present and his alien past.
Krypton SYFY Krypton, the new DC series debuting on Syfy in March, is taking a different approach to its production. While most of DC's other series are filmed in Vancouver, the producers opted out of that location and decided to move across the pond and film in the United Kingdom, and the reason, ...
Finally, there's the much more stable (and better at universe-bulding) section of DC: Television. DC is adding a lot to its already impressive roster of TV shows and not all of them are more Arrowverse shows. Krypton is coming to Syfy later this year, and we got a full trailer for the series this week. It looks ...
