The first season of Krypton has just been concluded and SYFY, which is the network that airs the show, has already announced that the series has officially been renewed for a second season. The news isn’t much of a surprise as the series has pulled in good ratings and is presently the most-watched season for any scripted series on SYFY since Defiance in 2015. No other details are currently available, but SYFY is pleased with the results they’ve seen from Krypton so far, with season one averaging 1.8 million viewers per week. The first episode was the network’s highest watched debut since Ascension in 2014.
Krypton actually gave viewers the chance to see certain DC Comics characters from a new perspective and context. Though the series revolves around Superman’s grandfather Seg-El, and his fight to save his world from an impending doom, it has also introduced characters like Adam Strange, Zod, Brainiac, and Doomsday, most of which everyone is familiar with. All this to bring together a well-made first season that has a lot to offer DC fans.
Things are looking pretty good for SYFY at the moment, as the network is ready to move on with more comic book adaptations, like a second season for Happy! As well as the upcoming Deadly Class, which not only adapts the comic of the same name from Rick Remender, but is executive produced by the Russo brothers, the directors of Avengers: Infinity War. With a lineup like that, it looks like Krypton season 2 will be in some very good company.
At the moment, all SYFY has said is that Krypton Season 2 will return in 2019. The first season arrived in March, so we should expect season 2 in the first quarter or early second quarter of 2019.
