Syfy has picked up the Superman prequel pilot, “Krypton,” to series, and its stars Cameron Cuffe and Wallis Day quickly took to social media to comment on the good news.

In an Instagram post, Cuffe — who plays Superman grandfather, Seg-El, on the show — thanked everyone who made the series pickup possible. The young actor also seemed ready to film the rest of show’s Season 1, writing: “Let’s get to work.” He also shared the news on Twitter using one of Superman’s popular catchphrases.

Day, meanwhile, seemed to be more emotional after hearing the news. In a couple of tweets, Day — who portrays junior magistrate Nyssa-Vex on the new series — revealed that she found out about the series pickup while on an Uber. She admitted that she cried after learning the news.

Developed by David S. Goyer, “Krypton” is set two generations before the destruction of the titular home planet of Superman. It follows the story of Seg-El, the scion of the once-prosperous El family who was stripped of its rank after it failed to end tyranny. In the pilot, Seg-El is living in the planet’s lowest caste as he fights to redeem his family’s honor and save his planet from chaos.

Last April, the first trailer for “Krypton” was leaked online. In the one-and-a-half minute clip, Seg-El is heard leaving what seems to be a parting message to his grandson before the obliteration of their home planet.

“Kal-El, my future grandson, by the time you heard these words, your birth world will be a distant memory,” says Seg-El, as the video shows the vast and technologically advanced landscape of Krypton.

“The House of El led a revolution against tyranny,” Seg-El continues. “[But] the story of your family isn’t how we died, but how we lived. I know you will fight to save your world just as I fought to save mine.”

In addition to Seg-El, also seen in the trailer is his grandfather, Val-El (Ian McElhinney), who defied death by going to the Phantom Zone and is a staunch believer of space exploration.

Seg-El’s love interest, Lyta Zod (Georgina Campbell), is also featured in the trailer. Lyta is a reluctant cadet and warrior in the Kryptonian military. For some reason, Seg-El and Lyta’s relationship is forbidden and remains a secret.

Seg-El’s best friend, Kem (Rasmus Hardiker), is also spotted in a couple of shots in the trailer, as well as Day’s character.

At some point in the trailer, a mysterious old man also gives Seg-El a key of sorts and tells him to find the fortress. Although the fortress is not shown in the promo clip, it may be similar to the Fortress of Solitude on CW’s “Supergirl,” as both fortresses require Kryptonian blood from anyone who wants to gain access.

Based on characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster and published by DC Comics, “Krypton” is executive produced by Goyer via his Phantom Four banner with Damian Kindler set to serve as showrunner. The pilot was directed by Colm McCarthy from a story and teleplay by Goyer and Ian Goldberg. After being tapped to serve as showrunner on AMC’s “Fear the Walking Dead,” Goldberg will not continue on with the series.

Syfy has yet to announce a premiere date for the series, but the trailer teases that the show is set to debut in 2017. Watch the first trailer below:
