Krypton TV Series Announced for Syfy

Now we'll get to explore the history of Krypton and the House of El before the planet blew up.

Are you ready for another new comic book TV show? It's been a while since we've had a new announcement. It appears that Syfy will be getting their own superhero-ish show, Krypton.

No Caption Provided

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show will take place on Krypton long before Superman was born and the planet was doomed to blow up. When does this take place?

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.

The network is getting David Goyer to develop the show along with Ian Goldberg (Once Upon a Time, FlashForward) to writer and produced, alongside Goyer.

Since show is in development, no word on when we might hear about casting or see a pilot happen.

Thoughts? Will people go for a show that doesn't feature any of the actual Superman characters we know?
