Sci-fi author Robert Heinlein is probably most commonly known these days as writer of the original Starship Troopers novel, though another infamous sci-fi from his library is finally getting its due. Syfy is ready to become a Stranger in a Strange Land with an impressive new adaptation.
We’re at least mildly curious to see what Syfy can do with Krypton that two Super-stars can’t, and the casting of some familiar faces should help. Not only is a lost Game of Thrones star coming to the rescue, but so too will we meet more from the House of El and Zod family.
Syfy’s 12 Monkeys may not have made the trip to participate in New York Comic-Con, but that isn’t stopping the fan-favorite time-travel drama from laying ground for its third year. Following that wild Season 2 cliffhanger, our first look at 12 Monkeys Season 3 takes us all the way to 2163, as the Witness’ cry is heard.
Just as TV prepares to meet a new Superman, Syfy is hard at work fleshing out his origins in a galaxy far, far away. New Super-prequel Krypton has found its leading man, none other than the Man of Steel’s ancestor, as played by actor Cameron Cuffe.
We’ve seen enough Supermen and DC heroes in recent weeks, that it’s easy to forget Syfy intends to move forward with its bizarre Super-prequel Krypton. Now, Georgina Campbell has landed the leading role of someone likely to be Zod’s ancestor.
The third in the Sharknado franchise (a real phrase I just typed) already took us to space, so how might The 4th Awakens top it? Anything you can imagine, whether fire-nados, cow-nados, Chippendales dancers crotch-thrusting sharks to the ground, and of course, giant chainsaws and mech suits. Don’t believe us? See the trailer for yourself.
The second season of Syfy’s 12 Monkeys has inverted both time and space enough that we can’t imagine where things might go in Season 3, but we won’t have to! Syfy has officially granted a Season 3 renewal to the fan-favorite time-travel adaptation keeping the Army of the 12 Monkeys alive in every possible sense.
If nothing else, Sharknado fans would surely tune into fourth Syfy installment The 4th Awakens to learn the fate of Tara Reid’s April, but why wait? Syfy has revealed the answer weeks ahead of the premiere, and no red witch can resurrect Sharknado out of this one.
Even as DC TV finally introduces small-screen Superman for Supergirl Season 2, Syfy remains committed so the Man of Steel’s distant past. Following an official pilot order for Syfy’s Krypton, a new report details everything from Superman’s grandfather, to Zod’s familial ties, and even a Legion of Superheroes connection.
At this rate, the world’s about ready for a new Sharknado to liven up our national turmoil, and Syfy is only-too-happy to oblige. Looks like the sharks are taking aim at Las Vegas (and maybe even Wolverine?) in the first official footage from Syfy’s Sharknado: The 4th Awakens.
