KRYPTON Canceled After Two Seasons; LOBO Spinoff Not Moving Forward At Syfy

Krypton revolves around Superman's grandfather, and the show which has also featured the likes of Brainiac and Doomsday is sadly coming to an end on Syfy (as are plans for Lobo). Read on for details...

Well, this is disappointing. Krypton may have been met with ridicule when it was first announced, but the series that delves into Superman's family tree has proven itself one of DC's better small screen adaptations. Unfortunately, the second season looks set to be its last as Syfy will not be moving forward with a third batch of episodes. 

This also means that the network isn't going to be developing the spinoff revolving around Lobo

According to Deadline, Warner Horizon Scripted Television is in talks with other outlets in a bid to keep Krypton going so we could see it live on elsewhere. Both DC Universe and HBO Max are possibilities, but time will tell on that front.

So, what led to Syfy deciding to scrap the series? Well, while it was the network's most-watched new TV show since 2014 when it premiered in 2018, ratings dipped around 50% by the time it returned this year and as Syfy relies on linear ratings to monetise a series that comes from outside studios, it simply wasn't worth keeping it around. 

Are you guys disappointed that Krypton has reached its end? (for now, at least)
