Apple TV+ is having a moment. So far in 2021, Dickinson and For All Mankind have premiered their Season 2s to rave reviews, Ted Lasso is the must-see show of the summer, and The Morning Show Season 2 is poised for a fall arrival. But science fiction and fantasy fans want updates about is See, the post-apocalyptic series in which nearly the entire population has lost their vision. It’s already been confirmed that See Season 2 is coming to Apple TV+ in 2021, so here’s what to know about it:
Of the four shows that debuted at Apple TV+’s launch, See fared the worst in the eyes of critics. (It currently holds a 40% splat on Rotten Tomatoes.) Even so, many fans seemed to love it. Plus, the show has been praised for its representation of those with visual impairments and was honored for its portrayal of people with disabilities by the Ruderman Family Foundation in 2020.
See Season 1 had its stumbles, but because Season 2 was greenlit even before Apple TV+ launched, the show will get a second chance to make a first impression. And the changes underway look to be significant improvements.
Here’s what to know about the upcoming season:
See Season 2 Teasers & Trailer
After production was halted on See Season 2 in the spring of 2020, it took nearly six months for the show to get back to work. However, Season 2 will officially premiere in August, and Apple TV+ previewed its return with a tense teaser trailer.
In the teaser, a kidnapped Haniwa tells her captor he’ll be sorry because Baba is her father and will make him pay for what he’s done. Her speech is intercut with footage of Baba traversing the wilderness, and Queen Kane and Maghara preparing for war. But Haniwa’s words are cut short when the man introduces himself as Edo Voss, her uncle.
On July 29, the full-length trailer for See arrived, giving fans a better overview of the coming season. War is coming to control the newest, most precious resource coming back to humankind: sight.
The trailer also promises a showdown between Baba Voss and Edo Voss. Considering the biggest highlights of Season 1 were the show’s fight choreography, that looks like a promising development. Momoa versus Bautista? See Season 2, you officially have my attention.

Most of the See Season 1 cast is expected to return for Season 2. That includes Jason Momoa as Baba Voss, Hera Hilmar as Maghra, Sylvia Hoeks as Queen Kane, Alfre Woodard as Paris, Joshua Henry as Jerlamerel, plus Nesta Cooper as Haniwa and Archie Madekwe as Kofun.

See Season 2 Plot
See Season 1 ended with Queen Kane and Maghara reuniting and taking control of the Witchfinder army after the Witchfinder General, Tamacti Jun, died. They also gained possession of Haniwa after she was separated from her biological father, Jerlamerel, and brother, Kofun. Meanwhile, Baba Voss saved Kofun, blinding Jerlamerel in the process, and the two headed off to save Haniwa.
Season 2 will see Baba fighting to reunite his family and escape the ever-lingering threat of war. However, the emergence of his nemesis brother makes those goals more difficult than ever.
