Syfy confirms their Krypton show is going to series…

May 11th, 2017 by Marc Comments

More good news if you like your comic book entertainment injected weekly and on the small screen as Krypton has got a full series order.

The new show, which will tell the history of Superman’s ill-fated planet generations before it blew up, will hit Syfy later this year and has been confirmed as going to series and will be part of Syfy’s new rebrand.

We’re not entirely sure how we feel about this show but, you know the deal, we’ll be watching as soon as it hits our screens.

Krypton is set two generations before the destruction of the legendary Man of Steel’s home planet. It follows Superman’s grandfather (Cameron Cuffe) — whose House of El was ostracized and shamed — as he fights to redeem his family’s honor and save his beloved world from chaos. Georgina Campbell, Elliot Cowan, Ann Ogbomo, Rasmus Hardiker, Wallis Day, Aaron Pierre also star,  along with Ian McElhinney.

Krypton comes from Warner Horizon Scripted Television. Executive Producer and showrunner is Damian Kindler; David S. Goyer (Man of Steel) is also an Executive Producer. The pilot teleplay was written by Goyer and Kindler, from a story by Ian Goldberg (Once Upon a Time) & Goyer, with Colm McCarthy serving as director and co-executive producer.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
