Krypton airs on SyFy and is set two generations before the Superman story we know, following the adventures of Superman’s grandfather, Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe), 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.
