When Apple launched its streaming video service Apple TV+, it did so with a limited library of original content, including a post-apocalyptic series starring Jason Momoa called See.
Just ahead of its debut in 2019, Apple announced that it had renewed the series for a second season, and last night, dropped a release date and trailer for it, along with word that the series would return for a third season.
See is set centuries in the future after a deadly virus wiped out most of humanity, and left the survivors and their descendants unable to see. Society fragmented into tribal factions who have figured out how to hunt and survive in the wilderness without sight. The series follows a tribal leader named Baba Voss (Jason Momoa), who marries a woman named Maghra Kane (Hera Hilmar) from outside of the tribe, and who gives birth to a pair of children, Haniwa and Kofun, who can see. Their biological father is a man named Jerlamarel (Joshua Henry), who’s being hunted down by a rival tribe as a heretic.
The new season will debut on August 27th on the streaming platform, and in the new trailer, we see that Baba Voss is set to face off against a new threat to his tribe in the post-apocalyptic wasteland: his own brother—played by Guardians of the Galaxy‘s Dave Bautista.
It looks as though Haniwa has been captured by Bautista’s army, and she tells him that her father will stop at nothing to protect her and his family. Bautista tells her that he owes him more than she can imagine, and somewhere along the way, it’ll lead to a big showdown between the pair.
Now, we know that we can expect some further adventures in this world: Deadline notes that it was quietly renewed a while back, with seasons two and three put into production at the same time. There’s no word on when season three will debut, however.
Season two is part of a busy fall for the streaming service. Earlier this week, Apple revealed that its alien invasion series Invasion will debut in October. Its other big science fiction projects—an adaptation of Isaac Asimov’s Foundation, and a thriller series about memory called Severance—are also slated to debut sometime this year.
