Syfy’s Superman prequel series Krypton has been officially cancelled by the network.
After the this weeks season finale it was announced that Syfy’s Superman prequel series Krypton will be cancelled after two seasons. The news should come as no surprise as the series has struggled to find and maintain an audience.Krypton’s cancellation also comes with the news that the Lobo spin-off that was in development is no longer happening and will be pitched to other networks.
Krypton planted a number of seeds for the third season in its finale, including iconic DC Comics locations like the planet Raan and Thanagar. Fans hoped this would possibly introduce Hawkgirl and or Hawkman. The cancellation of Krypton nips these plans in the bud and I think we’ll see plenty of petitions against this cancellation.

Brandon Routh is set to reprise his role as Superman for the next Arrowverse crossover Crisis On Infinite Earths, so this is definitely not the last we will see of Superman’s lore. The five-hour Crisis On Infinite Earths crossover will air over two quarters on The CW. This could mean the event will consist of the midseason finales and midseason premieres for the Arrowverse shows. In addition, the Crisis On Infinite Earths episode of Stephen Amell’s Arrow may also serve as the series finale considering the show concludes with its final 10-episode run this fall.
The upcoming crossover event has been teased since the very first episode of Grant Gustin’s The Flash, where a newspaper headline from the year 2024 revealed the Barry Allen’s fate was to disappear during a “crisis.” But the fifth season finale of The Flash accelerated this when the original newspaper headline changed the date of the event from 2024 to 2019. To add to this, the seventh season finale of Arrow set up Oliver Queen’s role in the next crossover by having him join the Monitor on a mission to warn other worlds of the crisis, as part of the arrangement Oliver made in order to save the lives of both The Flash and Supergirl.
Here is the official synopsis for Krypton:
Set two generations before the destruction of the legendary Man of Steel’s home planet, Krypton follows Superman’s grandfather — whose House of El was ostracized and shamed — as he fights to redeem his family’s honor and save his beloved world from chaos.
Krypton stars Cameron Cuffe, Blake Ritson, Shaun Sipos, Colin Salmon, Georgina Campbell, Wallis Day, Ann Ogbomo, Aaron Pierre, Hannah Waddingham, Kem, Ian McElhinney, and Emmett J. Scanlan as Lobo.
Krypton aired Wednesdays at 10/9c on SyFy.
