While in many ways it is the era of hero tv (and movies), 2019 carved a bloody swath through the shows that were around. This is my look back at the series that didn’t make it to 2020.
I’m not sure this has happened to me before, but while I was watching “The Alpha and the Omega,” which was the season two finale for Krypton, I got word the series had been cancelled.
They have managed a few good surprises in the second season of Krypton, and a lot of the writing has gotten better. The twists have made sense and haven’t been, “Oh, let’s throw this in to shake things up.”
The writers on Krypton got really clever with this episode. There were some great twists and turns along the way that I did not see coming.
The puns on Zod’s name continue with, “Zods and Monsters.” Personally, I think that’s a bit redundant, since Zod is a monster in my book, but there are a few others in this episode.
Krypton didn’t have a mid-season finale, but the halfway point came with a major shock.
Krypton hits the halfway point for its second season with “A Better Yesterday.” The rebellion against Zod continues with twists and turns on both sides. There’s a lot of ruthlessness on this planet.
Things on Krypton under Zod are a mess, and the heroes are going to have trouble getting him out of power. It’ll be even harder as we learn what he’s doing to opponents he captures.
Three episodes in, you could make the argument that not a lot has happened so far this season. Zod still rules Krypton, the resistance is, well, resisting, and Seg and Adam are still stuck on Colu dealing with the sorta-ghost of Brainiac and the very real Lobo.
We got the new state of affairs on Krypton (and Colu) last episode to kick off the season. Now, things are getting uglier in both places.
