We’ve all seen the news by now, I’m sure: Krypton has been cancelled by Syfy after 2 seasons, and the Lobo spinoff has been passed on. And while there is nothing we can do for Lobo right now, there may be a chance for you (yes, YOU) to help save Krypton. There are a few things you can do.
First, go to wherever Syfy has episodes for Season 2 available for viewing (LEGALLY I should stress), and binge watch the heck out of the episodes available. This in particular is time sensitive since we don’t know how long the show will be available on their website/app before they pull it.
Second, buy the episodes outright, be it on digital platforms like Amazon or on physical like DVD or Blu-Ray. That includes buying Season 2 if/when it releases. And make sure you don’t, I repeat, DON’T buy it second-hand. DC and WB won’t see a dime of that money if you do otherwise.
Third, for those of you with a DC Universe subscription, binge watch the heck out of Season 1 now, and Season 2 when it drops next year.
The most important thing is that DC and WB know that there is money to be made here. The impossible was accomplished when everyone did the same thing with Young Justice. Using the same strategy CAN work if enough people get involved. Do I think it will work? I don’t know. Unlike Young Justice, Krypton got the ax because not a lot of people watched Season 2, which will automatically make this effort harder. But if YJ can come back, then so can Krypton.
