2018's TV lineup is fully loaded with every kind of genre.

Created by David S. Goyer (who wrote Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight film trilogy) and starring Cameron Cuffe as Supes' grandfather Seg-El, the series will explore how the House of El fell from grace and ignited a revolution before rising to the heralded position it held at the time of Krypton's demise.

Shaun Sipos (Melrose Place) costars as DC Comics' interstellar traveler Adam Strange, along with the UK's Broadchurch vet Georgina Campbell as Lyta Zod (yes, an ancestor of that Zod) and The Royals' Wallis Day as Nyssa-Vex.
