The first trailer for Syfy’s Superman prequel series Krypton has made its way online.

Executive produced by David S. Goyer, known for writing Man of Steel and co-writing Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Krypton is set two generations before Superman’s home planet is destroyed. We follow Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe), Superman’s grandfather, during a time when the House of El is shamed in Kryptonian society.

Syfy’s been locking in some strong projects over the last few years, with the likes of The Magicians, 12 Monkeys and The Expanse all earning acclaim and decent-sized followings. It remains to be seen just how well this DC Comics-inspired outing performs, but the trailer below is strong enough to suggest we could be in for a solid series. Take a look.

Krypton will be hitting Syfy later this year.

Syfy’s Krypton, the much-anticipated Superman prequel set two generations before the destruction of the legendary Man of Steel’s home planet, will follow Superman’s grandfather — whose House of El was ostracized and shamed — as he fights to redeem his family’s honor and save his beloved world from chaos.

Krypton will be executive produced by David S. Goyer (Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, The Dark Knight trilogy) through his Phantom Four banner. Damian Kindler (Sleepy Hollow) will serve as executive producer/showrunner; Colm McCarthy (She Who Brings Gifts, Peaky Blinders) is set to direct and co-executive produce the pilot. The pilot teleplay and story is written by David S. Goyer & Ian Goldberg (Once Upon a Time, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles). Krypton will be produced by Warner Horizon Television and is based on characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, published by DC Comics.
