The first season of ‘Krypton‘ was a surprise hit for Syfy audiences as we were given a story set in Superman’s past which we never knew that we wanted! The second season is preparing to be released, and the network has given us new details and a trailer for what to expect going forward. The first season showed us that “It’s a bad day to be a hero” and had Superman’s grandfather fail at saving the future Man of Steel from being born.
As to what else we can expect in the second season of ‘Krypton,’ Syfy has released the following synopsis:
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.

To say that we’ve got an underdog situation as things kick off is a bit of an understatement. Zod, Brainiac, and Doomsday are all featured front and center in this 30-second teaser, but I think every fan can agree at the annoyance of not seeing Lobo make an appearance.
What did you think of the first trailer for the second season of Syfy’s ‘Krypton’? Did you expect a hint at Lobo being shown off here or will he not be a significant enough villain to deserve that much screen time quite yet? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
