The stars of Syfy’s Krypton came to San Diego Comic Con to discuss the fallout of Season 1 and what to expect in Season 2. Here’s what we learned at the series panel, moderated by TV Guide’s Damien Holbrook.

Time Jump:
Expected to premiere in 2019, Season 2 will pick up 4-5 months after the first season. Seg-El is still in the Phantom Zone while General Zod, using his knowledge from the future has transformed Krypton into a very different place than it was when we left it.

Lobo:
This will mark the first time the character of Lobo is being seen in live-action form. Lobo made his debut in 1983’s Omega Men #3, an alien bounty hunter from the planet Czarnia; he works as an interstellar mercenary and bounty hunter. His presence on Krypton may have something to do with the escaped Doomsday, who will play a larger role in Season 2 as well.

Nightwing and Flamebird
Season 2 will delve into the origin of Nightwing (no, not Dick Grayson) and Flamebird — two Kryptonian gods. Legend tells that Flamebird is a flaming, dragon like creature from ancient Krypton. The bird’s partner is Nightwing, its mate and opposite. In every cycle of their lives, they are reborn and find each other. They will also be betrayed by a friend in every cycle.

Strange
Season 2 we will meet some of Adam’s people. Perhaps both Sardath and Alanna will be more than just a voice or now that Superman has been wiped from existence, could this mean other members of the Justice League?

Colu
Executive producer Cameron Welsh confirmed the show will be visiting Brainiac’s home planet of Colu in Season 2.

Confirmation of the Multiverse:
“This is just another aspect of the multiverse. We might not even be changing continuity. It’s a multiverse people.” – VP of Creative Affairs, Dan Evans

The panel closed with a gag reel from Season 1.
