Apple TV+'s launch in November 2019 wasn't the most auspicious start for the streamer, especially with Disney+ arriving on its heels two weeks later and grabbing so much attention. But slow and steady has always won the race, and Apple had the benefit of green lighting second seasons for all four shows the streamer launched with, before it even launched. Since then, Dickinson and For All Mankind have premiered their Season 2s to rave reviews. But the show science fiction and fantasy fans are waiting for news on is See, the post-apocalyptic series in which nearly the entire population has gone blind. It’s already been confirmed that See Season 2 is coming to Apple TV+ later in 2021. But its exact premiere date remains to be seen.
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.) Part of the issue of the show is that its concept is super ambitious. The idea of telling a story of a visually impaired human society via a visual medium such as television is a daring undertaking.
Unfortunately, the execution in Season 1 wasn’t always great. There are stunning moments, like Jason Momoa's character Baba Voss sword-fighting multiple opponents using only aural cues to find them. But for each triumphant action, there is another "prayer" scene with Queen Kane (Sylvia Hoeks) reminding viewers exactly why Game of Thrones-like sexposition for the sake of shock value isn't trendy on TV anymore. Even so, 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.
The series will get another chance to win over critics and casual viewers alike with its second season.
‘See’ Season 2 Trailer
After the coronavirus pandemic halted production on See Season 2 in the spring of 2020, it took nearly six months for the show to get back to work. Production resumed in Toronto in October, with plans to finish in March 2021.
With these delays, there is no Season 2 teaser or trailer as of yet. However, on Feb. 19, Apple TV+ released a preview clip of its upcoming content that features a few short snippets of See.
‘See’ Season 2 Cast
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.
The new season will feature at least two new characters. According to Deadline, Highlander and Arrow star Adrian Paul will play a character named Lord Harlan. Further, Guardians of the Galaxy star Dave Bautista will also be part of Season 2’s cast, Variety reported. Currently, there’s not much else known about either character, such as whether they will be a friend or foe to Baba Voss.
While the show was on hiatus, The Hollywood Reporter indicated there might be new showbiz execs in charge of See Season 2, but deets on precisely who that would be never materialized. See is currently helmed by Frances Lawrence, famous for directing The Hunger Games, and Steve Knight, who created Peaky Blinders.
‘See’ Season 2 Plot
After being trained in secrecy on Game of Thrones, it’s not a surprise Momoa is mum about See Season 2’s plot points; he hasn't given much of anything away about the upcoming season. But fans can extrapolate based on where everyone left off: 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. Fans assume Season 2 will begin there.
‘See’ Season 2 Release Date
There is also no release date set for See Season 2 as of yet. That said, with principal photography expected to end in March, and post-production CGI assumed to take about six months, the series could return sometime in late 2021.
See Season 1 is available to stream on Apple TV+ now.
