Created by Oscar-winning screenwriter Terell Alvin McCraney (“Moonlight”), this new semi-autobiographical drama series revolves around a 14-year-old boy (Akili McDowell) from the South Florida projects who’s haunted by the death of his closest friend.

Phylicia Rashad also stars.
The future of Krypton is at stake as Seg (Cameron Cuffe) faces off against his enemy, General Zod (Colin Salmon), with the help of his allies as this “Superman” prequel wraps up Season 2 with a finale called “The Alpha and the Omega.” Leading man Cuffe calls it “the biggest episode we’ve ever done. The civil war escalates. It’s a culmination of Zod, the house of El, and Doomsday unleashed.”
