Krypton has been cancelled at Syfy, with the decision being made not to keep the Superman prequel going. This means that Lobo, the spinoff show that was in development, has been dropped by the network as well…
Deadline reports that the Krypton season 2 finale, which aired last week, will serve as the very last episode of the show to air on Syfy. And the Lobo spinoff that was in the works will not be moving ahead.
Interestingly, Deadline also notes that the show’s producers at Warner Horizon Scripted Television are talking to other outlets – including the DC Universe streaming service – in hope of finding a new home for the show. Of course, sometimes this pays off and a once-cancelled show can live on, but sometimes a new home cannot be found.
The star of the show, Cameron Cuffe, took to Twitter to share this message with the fans…
What I feel above all is gratitude. I spent 3 years living an impossible dream. I will always be a proud son of Krypton.
Keep believing in a better tomorrow. pic.twitter.com/LqMBedxpdf

The reasons behind the Krypton cancellation seem to ratings-based, with Deadline reporting there was a big dip in viewership between the first season and the second.
