KRYPTON Season 2 Set To Introduce The Main Man Lobo; Plus Brainiac Will Return & Doomsday Will Be Unleashed

The Main Man is coming to Krypton! Syfy has officially announced that Lobo will be the big bad for Season 2 and that both Brainiac & Doomsday will also return to cause more death and destruction.

Syfy officially announced today, during Krypton's first-ever SDCC panel, that the Lobo will be the big bad of the upcoming second season of their hit Superman prequel drama. No word just yet on casting, but since production isn't slated to begin for a few more weeks, it may be a while till we hear anything on that front. 

The new season, which picks up about four or five months after the events of the first season finale, will explore the game-changing consequences of season one while also redefining some of what's come before as new showrunner Cameron Welsh takes over. 

Meanwhile, both Brainiac (Blake Ritson) and Doomsday will return for Season 2 as the show begins to expand beyond Kandor, exploring vastly different planets from across the universe, including Brainiac's homeworld of Colu and Adam Strange's (Shaun Sipos) people. However, this wider scope may not necessarily be good news for the rest of the universe as the showrunners tease that Doomsday will finally be unleashed in full force.  





Set two generations before Superman ever heads to Earth, Krypton follows Kal-El’s grandfather (played by Cameron Cuffe) — whose House of El was ostracized and shamed — as he fights to redeem his family’s honor and save his beloved world from chaos. The series comes from producers David Goyer (the Dark Knight trilogy) and Damian Kindler (Sleepy Hollow). Along with Cuffe, the show stars Georgina Campbell (Broadchurch), Elliot Cowan (Da Vinci’s Demons), Ann Ogbomo (World War Z), Rasmus Hardiker (Your Highness), Wallis Day (Will), Aaron Pierre (Tennison) and Ian McElhinney (Game of Thrones).

Krypton features:
Cameron Cuffe as Seg-El
Georgina Campbell as Lyta-Zod
Shaun Sipos as Adam Strange
Elliot Cowan as Daron-Vex
Ann Ogbomo as Jayna-Zod
Aaron Pierre as Dev-Em
Rasmus Hardiker as Kem
Wallis Day as Nyssa-Vex
Blake Ritson as Brainiac
Ian McElhinney as Val-El
Colin Salmon as General Dru-Zod

Krypton returns for Season 2 in 2019
