E4 Sets September UK Premiere Date For ‘Krypton’ Season 2
‘Krypton‘ will return for its 2nd (and now final) season this September E4 has announced.
Set two generations before the destruction of Superman’s home planet, ‘Krypton’ follows Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe – ‘The Halcyon’), the legendary Man of Steel’s grandfather, who is faced with a life and death conflict. With Krypton’s leadership in disarray and the House of El ostracised, Seg is prompted into action by the arrival of Adam Strange (Shaun Sipos – ‘The Vampire Diaries’), who’s travelled from present-day Earth to warn Seg of an insidious plot to change the past and prevent the birth of the last son of Krypton – a plot he believes to have been orchestrated by the Super-Villain Brainiac (Blake Ritson – ‘Da Vinci’s Demons’). Fighting to redeem his family’s honour and protect the ones he loves, Seg is also entrusted with protecting the future of his legacy – a destiny that will see the birth of the greatest Super Hero ever known.
Season 2 brings us back to a changed Kandor, locked in a battle over its freedom and its future. General Dru-Zod (Colin Salmon) is now in control. He’s on a ruthless mission to rebuild Krypton according to his ideals and to secure its future by conquering the universe. Faced with a bleak outlook, our hero, Seg-El, attempts to unite a dispersed group of resisters in an effort to defeat Zod and restore hope to their beloved planet. Their chance at redemption is threatened however, by their opposing tactics, shifting alliances and conflicting moral boundaries – forcing each of them to individually determine how far they’re willing to go in pursuit of a better tomorrow.
As we reported last month, US network Syfy decided to cancel ‘Krypton’ after 2 Seasons, along with the mooted spin-off series ‘Lobo’. The cancellation appeared to be due to rating dropping for Season 2, but it is also made by an outside studio, making it less profitable for Syfy.
‘Krypton‘ Season 2 premieres Wednesday, 25th September 2019 at 10pm on E4.
