Krypton SDCC ’18 Interview: Cam Walsh Teases Season 2
SYFY series Krypton returned to San Diego Comic-Con for its second year, as the series’ cast and producers looked back on the Superman prequel’s first season and spilled some secrets about what we might see in Season 2. (Spoiler alert: Lobo is coming!) DC TV Podcasts participated in the press room for Krypton this year where Lacy Baugher (of Krypton Podcast) chatted with the cast at the roundtables to discuss the series.
Executive producer Cameron Welsh sat down to talk about Season 1 and Superman’s larger legacy. He called himself and the Krypton team “caretakers” of this legend that’s been entrusted to them. Some of the topics discussed include:
A few details on the show’s upcoming take on Lobo in Season 2
Welsh’s thoughts what Superman and his legend represent
How much freedom the writing team has to work within existing Superman mythology
“What if Superman never existed? Set two generations before the destruction of Superman’s home planet, KRYPTON follows Seg-El, the legendary Man of Steel’s grandfather, as a young man who is faced with a life and death conflict – save his home planet or let it be destroyed in order to restore the fate of his future grandson. With Krypton’s leadership in disarray and the House of El ostracized, Seg finds himself in a difficult position. He must redeem his family’s honor and protect the ones he loves while being challenged by familiar DC characters Brainiac and Earthly time-traveler Adam Strange. “
