Krypton Season 3: Renewed By Syfy?
Unfortunately, Syfy canceled the series after the second installment in August 2019, 2 months after the second installment’s premiere. The second installment witnessed a huge drop in the ratings and viewership. The first season engrossed a viewership of 790,000.
Unfortunately, the second installment saw a drop of 48% in the show’s audience. Morover, there was a 54% drop in the ratings as compared to the first season. Kryton is rated 6.9/10 on IMDB and 80% on Rotten Tomatoes. Thus, the below-average rating was one of the reasons the network decided not to go ahead with Krypton Season 3.
Moreover, the second season’s storyline came as a big disappointment for the dedicated Superman fans. With no Superman in the series, fans decided to distance themselves slowly from the series. Hence, given the present circumstances, it is highly unlikely that the series would return for a third installment
How Did The Second Run Conclude?
The final episode of the second season was titled ” The Alpha and the Omega.” Dev and Jayna discussed their next move while the remnants of Wegthor rained upon Krypton. Lyta openly criticized Dru-Zod while Seg contacted Val’s ship to find out if Kem survived or not. Nyssa manipulated Adam to use his Zeta-Beam Teleporter to find baby Jor-El, starting from Rann.
Nysaa found that the world’s defenders were slaughtered by Thanagarians while looking for Sardath. The rebels learned from Lyta’s spies that Zod’s troops were killing dissenters. Seg challenged Zod publicly to keep his Sagitari occupied in the Outlands. However, Lyta jeopardized Zod’s plan by exposing him as the Sagitari took her side. They fought alongside Seg to force Zod to give up. Zod’s reign came to an end while Brania took Jor-El to Earth, where he could become a god among men in Krypton Season 2.
Krypton Season 3: When Does It Return?
