Krypton Season 2: What the show is about
Krypton is set in the fictional planet of the same name about 200 years before the birth of Superman (Kal-El). The series follows Superman’s grandfather Seg-El (played by Cameron Cuffe) fighting for his family’s honor and to save his native planet Krypton from destruction.
Krypton Season 2 plot
The official synopsis for Krypton Season 2 reads:
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.
In the Season 1 finale, Seg (Cameron Cuffe) sends Brainiac into the Phantom Zone but is also sucked into it. Seg saves Kandor and Superman’s future, but Dru-Zod (Colin Salmon) traps him in the Phantom Zone by destroying the console that has the controls that open the portals to the Phantom Zone.
Season 1 thus ends with Zod apparently having fulfilled his goal of setting up an alternative reality in which Superman does not exist. He takes charge of Kandor City after Seg-El is trapped into the Phantom Zone.

There will be a time jump of about five months between Seasons 1 and 2. Season 2 will start after Zod has taken over Krypton, according to Cuffe, in an interview with ComicBook. Seg will confront Dru-Zod in Krypton Season 2.
