Before there was this outfit, and a man of steel, there was a planet, Krypton.
That is the basis for a new series due out later this year from SyFy. "Krypton" Superman’s grandfather — whose House of El was outcast and named ruined — as he seeks to redeem his family’s honor and save his world (however, I guess we know how it's going to end, right?)
Newcomer Cameron Cuffe will play Seg-El, Superman’s grandfather. The cast also includes Georgina Campbell (King Arthur: Legend of the Sword) as Lyta Zod, part of Krypton’s military caste and daughter of General Alura Zod. Seg-El and Lyta Zod are in the midst of a secret, forbidden relationship.
