What better way to celebrate the anniversary of Superman's first comic book appearance than to announce the return of SYFY's KRYPTON airing June 12? The brand new, full-length trailer puts a spotlight on villains, both familiar and new, as the fate of our much-loved heroes is threatened once more. There is also a behind-the-scenes trailer for the second season and a new promotional poster for the premiere.
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.
