DC Television SYFY and David Goyer Developing KRYPTON Series written by Robert Reineke December 9, 2014 The expansion of comic book properties into television continues unabated as word hits that SYFY is interested in a David Goyer produced KRYPTON series, undoubtedly bolstered by the ratings success of GOTHAM. Details are few at this time, unsurprisingly, but early rumors are that it will concern Superman’s grandfather battling against the restrictions of his society. That’s not a terrible premise for a science fiction series, and John Byrne explored some similar ground back in his WORLD OF KRYPTON mini-series back in the 1980s, but I don’t know if it’s an indefinite series. Still, I suppose it doesn’t matter if it’s 8 episodes or 80 episodes if it’s well planned. One thing is for sure, there aren’t that many Easter Eggs you can drop into that scenario that the general public will pick up on. Maybe Brainiac and some alien races, potentially a Green Lantern or two, I suppose Doomsday in some form, but that seems to be about it. Still, it seems to be a change in direction for SYFY who seem to want to recapture some of the acclaim that they had in their BATTLESTAR GALACTICA days and move away from SHARKNADO. If so, KRYPTON seems like a good fit for the network and something that they’ll support. Tell us what you think below.

Robert Reineke It’s a concern. I’m especially not crazy about series that aren’t focusing on their main attraction. But, as I wrote, if it’s like World of Krypton then there’s a good story to work with. If nothing else it limits the Easter eggs and foreshadowing to manageable levels.
