Fans want to Save Krypton
Regarding why Krypton was canceled, the ratings really went down the tubes for Season 2, going from a near high of 3 million viewers in episodes of Season 1 to a low of 800K or so for Season 2.
The original plan was for Emmett J. Scanlan to also star in a Krypton Lobo spinoff series, but again, that is now not happening, at least on SYFY.
The good news is that it has been reported the producers on Krypton are trying to shop the show around to other networks, with the DC Universe streaming service a possibility, as Season 1 episodes can be watched on the app, and another possibility is the upcoming HBO Max streaming service.
Following news of the cancellation, series star Cameron Cuffe and Lobo actor Emmett J. Scanlan also tweeted their thoughts.
What I feel above all is gratitude. I spent 3 years living an impossible dream. I will always be a proud son of Krypton.
Keep believing in a better tomorrow. pic.twitter.com/LqMBedxpdf
