SYFY Developing Krypton Spin-Off For Lobo

Lobo, who is coming to Krypton Season 2, is destined for more on SYFY! TV Line reveals that a Lobo spin-off series is in the works! Emmett J. Scanlan who is debuting as the character on the Superman prequel drama is now officially signed on to reprise the character, per Hollywood Reporter.

Cam Welsh, who is the executive producer and showrunner of Krypton, will also work on the Lobo spin-off. While no official logline was attached, the series would follow the fan-favorite DC bounty hunter on his intergalactic adventures. This isn’t the first time Warner has attempted at developing a Lobo project as the film division has been trying to get a film, centered around the character, going for years.

The last update about the film was in 2018 when Michael Bay was being eyed to direct it. Should Lobo go to series, it would be safe to say that the film project has been scrapped. With Krypton returning for its second season tonight, be sure to check out our exclusive interview with Shaun Sipos, who plays Adam Strange, as he also talks about the introduction of Lobo.

“What if Superman never existed? Set two generations before the destruction of Superman’s home planet, “Krypton” follows Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe), the legendary Man of Steel’s grandfather, as a young man who fights to save his home planet from destruction. Season 2 brings us back to a changed Kandor, locked in a battle over its freedom and its future. General Dru-Zod (Colin Salmon) is now in control. He’s on a ruthless mission to rebuild Krypton according to his ideals and to secure its future by conquering the universe. Faced with a bleak outlook, our hero, Seg-El, attempts to unite a dispersed group of resisters in an effort to defeat Zod and restore hope to their beloved planet. Their chance at redemption is threatened however, by their opposing tactics, shifting alliances and conflicting moral boundaries – forcing each of them to individually determine how far they’re willing to go in pursuit of a better tomorrow.”

Krypton Season 2 debuts this Wednesday, June 12, at 10/9c on SYFY. Be sure to check out Krypton Podcast with Michele and Lacy every week by subscribing on Apple PodcastsStitcher RadioGoogle Play, and iHeartRadio as well as follow the Krypton Podcast on Facebook and Twitter!
