Superman prequel Krypton is officially coming to the UK.

Channel 4 has announced that the series – which airs on SyFy in the US and takes place on Superman's home planet two generations before its destruction – will come to E4 later this year, via a deal with Warner Bros International Television Distribution.

The comic series was developed for television by David S Goyer and Damian Kindler and follows the story of Superman's grandfather Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe), who must fight an untold number of enemies to redeem the honour of his family on the planet.

It stars British actor Blake Ritson alongside Ray Donovan's Paula Malcomson as well as Georgina Campbell, Elliot Cowan, Ann Ogbomo, Rasmus Hardiker, Wallis Day, Aaron Pierre and Ian McElhinney.

Krypton premiered in the US back in March and it's safe to say, the reviews weren't entirely flattering.

Despite critics wondering whether the series is a comic book prequel too far, the show will indeed arrive in the UK later this year, although an exact premiere date has yet to be revealed by the folks over at Channel 4.

It follows other E4 US exports such as The 100, The Big Bang Theory and Young Sheldon.

Krypton will air on E4 in the UK later this year. It airs on SyFy in the US.
