Krypton is a upcoming live-action TV series based on Superman's birth world Krypton.[1]


From Warner Horizon Television and DC Comics, Krypton takes place years before the Superman legend we know, when the House of El was shamed and ostracized. This drama, which is in development, follows the Man of Steel's grandfather as he brings hope and equality to Krypton, turning a planet in disarray into one worthy of giving birth to the greatest Super Hero ever known. [2][3]



David S. Goyer is developing the series, as well as the co-executive producer and co-writer with Ian Goldberg and Damian Kindler who will be the showrunner and Colm McCarthy will direct the pilot.[15][16][17]
