'Krypton' season 2: Release date, cast, plot and everything you need to know about the Superman prequel
The new season introduces the world to Lobo, the ruthless bounty hunter who stalks the universe on his motorbike and kills whoever stands in his way. We also get a full-fledged view of Doomsday
'Krypton' season 1 ended with some crazy implications and after that season 1 finale, we couldn't wait for the second season. It may not have been a critic's delight, but the show still had enough promise and action to hook audiences. What made the first season a standout hit was that it looked at creating its own path despite being a prequel. Alongside introducing characters related directly to Superman, the world also got a glimpse of Adam Strange, and it's safe to assume that we'll be seeing more characters from DCU in the upcoming season. Here's what we know about Krypton Season 2 so far.
'Krypton' Season 2 arrives on June 12, 2019
Season 2 sees the story jump five months after Seg-El enters 'The Phantom Zone' with General Zod in control. The trailer also offered a look at another new threat in the form of Doomsday. With Lobo in the mix as well, Seg-el will have his work cut out to stop the baddies. While the first season is all about arriving at a familiar Superman origin story, the second will look at detailing out in re-establishing his legacy.
Shaun Sipos (Adam Strange), Colin Salmon (Zod) and Brainiac (Blake Ritson) will be returning as will Cameron Cuffe as Seg-El. Nyssa-Vex (Wallis Day), Lyta-Zod (Georgina Campbell), Jayna-Zod (Ann Ogbomo), Dev-Em (Aaron Pierre), Jax-Ur (Hannah Waddingham), Kem (Rasmus Hardiker), Val-El (Ian McElhinney) and potentially Daron-Vex (Elliot Cowan) too will be back in the second season. Emmett Scanlan will be back as anti-hero Lobo, who stalks the universe on his motorbike and kills whoever stands in his way.
The series is based on the DC Comic series written by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. Damian Kindler will return as the showrunner with David S. Goyer as co-executive producer.
The trailer starts off with General Zod making the entire city of Kandor look like Krypton. The footage also follows Seg-El and Brainiac's journey in the phantom zone. Last season, we caught a glimpse of Doomsday in a cryogenic chamber, but this season appears to be giving us a full view of the villain. Emmett Scanlan's Lobo steals the limelight in the final few seconds of the trailer.
