In the DC Comics world, few bounty hunters have the cult-following that LOBO has, and SYFY is hoping that all of those fans watch the new spinoff series featuring the character. A few hours before the season two premiere of “Krypton” season two, the network confirmed a new spinoff series featuring the popular character.
While details are slim at the moment, the new show is based on the characters from DC, and the series will tell the story of the “foul-mouthed, dangerous, irascible, intergalactic bounty hunter” named LOBO. According to the company, “Krypton” executive producer Cameron Welsh will serve as executive producer and writer on the new spinoff.
“LOBO” is currently the working title, but not set in stone. The show joins previously-announced or confirmed SYFY scripted development projects including “Chucky, The Woods,” “Night Gallery,” “Wayward Children,” “The Raven Circle,” and Death is my BFF.”
SYFY stopped short of announcing a premiere date at this time, and we don’t have any casting news to share. SYFY is always a staple at New York Comic-Con and San Diego Comic-Con, and we are hoping that the show makes a stop at both conventions to discuss the new spinoff. If everything goes according to plan, Emmett J. Scanlan, who plays the character of LOBO in “Krypton,” will reprise the role.
If you’re a fan of “Krypton,” the show returns with all-new episodes tonight (June 12th).
“Krypton” is from Warner Horizon Scripted Television and is executive produced by David S. Goyer (“Man of Steel,” “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” “The Dark Knight” Trilogy) through his Phantom Four banner, alongside Cameron Welsh (“Constantine,” “The Last Ship”), who serves as showrunner.
Based on the DC characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, the series stars Cameron Cuffe (“The Halcyon”) as Seg-El, Georgina Campbell (“Broadchurch”) as Lyta-Zod, Shaun Sipos (“The Vampire Diaries”) as Adam Strange, Colin Salmon (“Arrow”) as General Dru-Zod, Ann Ogbomo (“World War Z”) as Jayna-Zod, Aaron Pierre (“Britannia”) as Dev-Em, Rasmus Hardiker (“Your Highness”) as Kem, Wallis Day (“Will”) as Nyssa-Vex, Blake Ritson (“Da Vinci’s Demons”) as Brainiac and Ian McElhinney (“Game of Thrones”) as Val-El.
