See may be a sci-fi series set in a far-future in which humanity collectively lost the sense of sight, but – in an example of art metaphorically imitating life – the show’s streaming home, Apple TV+, did a bit of blind greenlighting of its own back in October, preemptively renewing See Season 2 amongst a quartet that includes Dickinson, The Morning Show and For All Mankind, ahead of the platform’s November 1 launch date.
The renewal of See and the three other shows was revealed in a lengthy report from THR on Apple’s streaming endeavors. The series, brandishing a concept-driven sci-fi premise, is set hundreds of years in the future, focused on a human race that literally went blind, resorting to a brutal, primitive tribal existence (like, say, if iPhones and other annually-replaced Apple products suddenly disappeared). With the DC Extended Universe’s big screen Aquaman and former Game of Thrones actor Jason Momoa adorning its ephemera, Season 1 of the series – launched with the platform back in November – has been showcasing star power and an intriguing premise.
Interestingly, the second season of See will arrive under new creative stewardship, with Jonathan Tropper (Warrior, Banshee) stepping in as showrunner.

Dave Bautista will join the second season of See, as Deadline reports. While no details were provided about his character, it is being referred to as a co-starring role, opposite star Jason Momoa.
A former wrestling megastar in the WWE (for which he’s Hall of Fame-bound this year), Bautista has, of course, made quite a post-ring career transition, notably for his Marvel Cinematic Universe role as Drax in the Guardians of the Galaxy films, which he will reprise in the 2021-scheduled Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. He’ll next be seen in the March-scheduled action-comedy, My Spy, and is part of the colossal cast of director Denis Villeneuve’s remake movie of Frank Herbert’s arid post-apocalyptic epic, Dune, which is currently scheduled to hit theaters on December 18.
See Season 2 Details
As See’s official synopsis reads:
In the far future, a virus has decimated humankind. Those who survived emerged blind. Jason Momoa stars as Baba Voss, the father of twins born centuries later with the mythic ability to see—who must protect his tribe against a powerful yet desperate queen who believes it’s witchcraft and wants them destroyed. Alfre Woodard also stars as Paris, Baba Voss’ spiritual leader.
The first season sported a writer’s room consisting of Peaky Blinders mastermind Steven Knight, twins Paul and Michael Clarkson (His Dark Materials) and David Ray (Grand Unified Theory), with a director collective that, amongst others, includes The Hunger Games sequels helmer Francis Lawrence. The first season of the series is under the purview of executive producers in Knight and Lawrence, joined by Peter Chernin, Jenno Topping and Kristen Campo.
Jonathan Tropper (Warrior, Banshee) will step in to run the day-to-day as showrunner for Season 2, also serving as executive producer, joined in the latter capacity by Knight, Lawrence, Chernin and Campo.
Joining Momoa in the cast of Apple TV+’s See are Alfre Woodard (Luke Cage), Hera Hilmar (Mortal Engines), Sylvia Hoeks (Blade Runner 2049), Christian Camargo (Penny Dreadful), Yadira Guevara-Prip (Supernatural), Archie Madekwe (Informer) and Nesta Cooper (Travelers).
