New Krypton Promo Reveals Exact Premiere Date


When Krypton was first formally announced all the way back in 2014, even the most devoted among us Superman fans questioned if such a series was entirely necessary. After all, the ten-year journey to becoming the Man of Steel that was Smallville (and the epilogue comics that followed) are still fresh in our memories, so why continue milking the prequel cow for all it’s worth when there are many other fine DC properties that are ripe for adaptation?

But when impressive footage such as what was shown last summer at San Diego Comic-Con finds its way online, you can’t help but start to become more willing to see whatever it is that David S. Goyer and company are cooking up. By boasting feature film quality visuals and promising that we’ll see familiar villains such as Brainiac and Doomsday, it’s hard for us not to become the least bit intrigued.

And while we’ve had other stellar DC TV shows to help occupy our time, we’ve been looking at the clock wondering just when the series will premiere. Fortunately, word recently came down that a March 2018 premiere date is slated, but one always hopes for something more specific.

Now, thanks to a brief promo being circulated on social media (seen above), we finally have our answer. That’s right, on Wednesday, March 21, Krypton will finally join SyFy’s prime time block. Let it also be noted that, right now, no other DC TV show occupies that night of the week, so we need not worry about any overlap that networks such as Fox and The CW have already given us. As a result, we hope this series can truly thrive.
