First and foremost, it's worth noting that the Pilot of Krypton has garnered 1.319 million viewers, an incredible amount for Syfy, with a 0.42 demo rating among adults 18-49. For instance, the network's hit The Expanse has drawn just 1.19 million viewers. But bear in mind, Syfy had renewed the space opera for two more seasons last years. If we gaze at other shows on Syfy, they were even less successful in the ratings. However, the cable network opted to renew such series as Dark Matter, The Magicians, Wynonna Earp, etc., for more and more seasons. As a result, the ratings of Krypton are comparable with the network's top-rated series such as Z Nation, 12 Monkeys, and The Expanse. So, only given this factor, we were confident that Krypton has a good chance for Season 2 on Syfy.
Well, let's now pay our attention to the response from critics and viewers. We can't claim that critics were impressed; in turn, their reviews were primarily mixed. However, if we take a look at the reception by the viewers, they were fully satisfied by watching Krypton. On Rotten Tomatoes, the first season of the freshman series holds a score of 6.33/10 and a 58% approval rating among critics, while the viewers have evaluated Krypton at 4.1/5/80%. On Metacritic, the show's scores are 53/100 and 6.4/10, among critics/viewers, respectively. An overall rating of Krypton is 7.4/10 > 1000 votes. Thus, as we could see, despite the ambivalent response from critics, the sci-fi drama was a success among the target audience.
Summing up, this has been just a matter of time when Syfy is about to announce the renewal of Krypton. This sci-fi series showcased excellent ratings during its premiere; the target audience found the show impressive enough; Krypton looked like a high-budget well-done television project. As a result, we concluded that Krypton would return for Season 2 on Syfy. Fortunately, we were right.
