From Variety, Syfy has ordered a pilot for Krypton. As you may or may not know this is Superman’s home planet and spared from its destruction Kal-El landed on Earth.

The show will be about Superman’s grandfather who’s full identity is not known at this time. He will be fighting against a family disgrace. David S. Goyer will write the pilot along with Ian Goldberg who serves as executive producer, and Damon Kandler will be the showrunner.


I mean, that Gotham is successful, why not have Krypton, I guess. Though Supergirl’s future up in the air right now, and though one show doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with the other, I do find this an interesting move.

We shall see.
