One of the new DC Comics drama to arrive last year was SYFY’s Krypton, the story of Superman’s grandfather and the people around him as they lived their lives before the planet’s brutal doom that led the Man of Steel to Earth. Being a major success for the network and loved among critics, SYFY renewed the series for a second season that will kick off sometime this year.
Little is known about Season 2, but the one big thing that was revealed last fall was that Emmett J. Scanlan was cast as the DC fan-favorite Lobo, who will be a recurring character throughout the season. How he plays into the story has yet to be revealed. While production on Season 2 has wrapped, no trailer has been released, but is expected to in the very near future.
Despite there not being any footage at this point, Scanlan shared recently a new look of the character on Instagram as he is letting himself go all sorts of loose. Along with the photo came a little joke as well about an Aquaman/Lobo crossover.
“Jason Momoa calls for LOBO to be in @aquamanmovie 2 & for the 1st time ever, the actor playing the TV version will also play the movie one. In other news, I’m lying. I’ll be doing my own movie instead. Lying. Fact is I’m not available, too fuckin busy. Literally can’t stop lying.”
The ending of Season 1 left our protagonist Seg-El’s (Cameron Cuffe) faith in limbo as he was sucked into the Phantom Zone along with the villainous Brainiac (Blake Ritson.) Although given that he is the one we are following, he is going to get out of the Phantom Zone eventually, but it’s all about the how and when. Hopefully when we get our first at Season 2, we will be getting some answers to those questions along with more looks at Lobo.
Krypton, starring Cameron Cuffe as Seg-El, Georgina Campbell as Lyta-Zod, Shaun Sipos as Adam Strange, Elliot Cowan as Daron-Vex, Ann Ogbomo as Jayna-Zod, Aaron Pierre as Dev-Em, Rasmus Hardiker as Kem, Wallis Day as Nyssa-Vex, Blake Ritson as Brainiac, Ian McElhinney as Val-El and Colin Salmon as General Dru-Zod, is set to premiere sometime this year on SYFY.
