All the bad guys! Zod, Braniac (Blake Ritson) and Doomsday will make an appearance on season two of Krypton. But don’t just take my word for it, watch the trailer for yourself!
General Dru-Zod (Colin Salmon) has taken over Krypton, and the only ones who can stop him are Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe) and his friends, the merry resistance squad. The new season will also include Lobo (Emmet J. Scanlan) as an antagonist, though the trailer does not include him. Maybe we’ll see him in a filler episode? Lobo is a survivor from the planet Czarnia, possesses super-human strength, and is well trained in strategy. Showrunner Cameron Welsh had this to say about getting Lobo on the show. “Lobo on the page is such a broad character, and the tone of our show is so grounded, so it feels like a bit of a mismatch, but that’s kind of what’s exciting about it as well,”.
Here’s the synopsis for the second season:
What if Superman never existed? Set two generations before the destruction of Superman’s home planet, KRYPTON follows Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe), the legendary Man of Steel’s grandfather, as a young man who fights to save his home planet from destruction. 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.
Krypton is disconnected from any shared universe right now, so it can get away with a lot, as Gotham does. Cameron Welsh, the showrunner for Krypton has said in the past that the show takes place on its own realm in DC’s multiverse, so anything can happen really.
Season 2 of Krypton does not have a release date yet.
