Fans of the Krypton TV series were very saddened to learn that following the shows very well received second season, the Syfy network has pulled the plug on the show. While there is an online petition going around to get another network to pick it up, it seems unlikely we will get to see the rest of the Superman ancestry fleshed out in this series.

Krypton will not live to see another day.
Syfy has opted to cancel the drama, which told the story of Superman’s grandfather, after two seasons. The decision arrives mere days after the David Goyer-produced drama starring Cameron Cuffe wrapped its sophomore frame.
The drama, which was produced by an outside studio — Warner Horizon — was unable to cut through and find an audience. Wednesday’s finale drew just 350,000 same-day viewers, with season two averaging a total of only 408,000. That’s down considerably from the 1.8 million viewers (with three days of DVR) from season one.
Syfy renewed the series for a second season in May 2018 after Krypton ranked as the Chris McCumber-led network’s best series premiere in more than three years and its most-watched debut series in four. Season one of Krypton is streaming on DC Universe, with the sophomore season expected to join the Warners-backed platform in 2020.
