Another flagship series of Apple TV Plus is back. See season 2, the next sci-fi epic starring Jason Momoa tells about a blind world, which will be broadcast on the anchor later this month.
Despite mixed reviews on Season 1, See is a strange but fascinating show that is difficult to refuse. It must have found an audience, let Apple reinvest and bring us the second season.
After a major suspenseful ending, COVID-19 delay, new cast announcements, and mysterious trailers, See is one of Apple’s most exciting comeback series.
Read on for what we know about the upcoming second season of See. If you do not have Apple TV Plus, you can use the button below to register.

Compared with other streaming services, Apple TV Plus may not have so much content, but its content quality makes up for this.This includes shows like For All Mankind and Ted Lasso, and movies like The Banker, Greyhound and Palmer
What is meeting?
Seeing happening in the distant future. A few generations ago, a mysterious virus blinded the world’s population. Now, humans survive in small clans, in some cases reduced to warring factions, while others flourish without sight.
Frankly, when Apple announced this premise in 2018, it sounded like a bad idea. But the excellent performance and gorgeous photography help make it a series worth exploring.

Importantly, it is very sensitive to disability issues, although the subject may only be exploitative and capable when it reflects real-world blindness.
On the contrary, See sees vision as a neutral human characteristic, not a gift or curse. What is the value of vision when no one around you has vision? Or, more importantly, when society is not based on vision as the default assumption? When blindness is fully supported in the community?
In other words, See is willing to admit that disability has no inherent qualities, but is defined by a social structure that favors certain people and punishes others. Its message is delivered in a messy and sometimes awkward way, but it feels politically advanced in its own way.
See what happened in season 1?
When the sighted children were born in the Alkenny tribe, their mother Maghra and adoptive father Baba Voss began to flee to protect them from the queen of the nearby dynasty, who intended to kill anyone who carried the curse of sight.
As the family struggles to survive, we learn that Baba and Magra are living in secrets about their past. The children followed the instructions left by their sighted biological father, considering whether they should go to him and learn to live apart from their families and tribes.
But as the loyalty relationship broke down, daughter Haniwa was taken away by a shady man who worked for someone from Baba Voss’s past. Dad hopes to never see someone again.
When and where can I watch Season 2?
Season 2 will premiere on August 27, 2021, nearly two years after Season 1 premiered.
The series is only available on Apple Streaming. It will be launched every week on Friday after the premiere.
Apple has given the green light for the third season and is currently filming. Season 3 has no release date yet.
See Is Season 2 affected by COVID-19?
Like many series and movies, the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic interrupted production and delayed the release of season 2.
Filming for Season 2 was originally planned to begin in Toronto in early 2020. Due to security issues and a city-wide blockade, the production was closed in March.
Season 3 is currently being filmed in Toronto.
Other Apple TV Plus series affected by the discontinuation include The Servant, All Mankind, Lisy’s Story and Mythical Mission: The Crow’s Banquet.
Who is involved?
Most of the actors and crew from Season 1 will return to watch Season 2.
In front of the camera, Jason Momoa plays Baba Voss. Other members of the main cast include:
- Alfre Woodard as Paris, the elder of the Alkenni tribe
- Sylvia Hawkes as Queen Kane
- Hera Hilmar as Maghra Kane, wife of Baba Voss and sister of Queen Kane (what we learned in the first season)
- Archie Madekwe and Nesta Cooper as the sighted children of Baba Voss and Maghra Kane
- Yadira Guevara-Prip as Bow Lion, a warrior spy from the Alkenny tribe, known as “shadow”, can move undetected among other blind people
The new actor is Dave Bautista, who will play Baba’s brother Edo Voss. Baba’s dark, violent past seems to intersect with the past of his brother, a formidable general who kidnapped Baba’s daughter Haniwa.
Tom Misson of the Watchmen also joined an unknown role.
See was created and written by Steven Knight (Eastern Promises, Peaky Blinders) and directed by Francis Lawrence (Constantine, The Hunger Games: On Fire).
The executive producers are Steven Knight, Francis Lawrence, Peter Chenin, Gianno Toppin, Dan Shorts and Christine Campo. Joe Strechay serves as associate producer and blindness consultant.
Is any actor really blind?
When the first season aired, the problem of blind actors arose. Although the main actors all collaborated with a blindness consultant, Joe Strake, who spent weeks teaching them to move and interact with the world around them without relying on their eyesight, there were relatively few blind actors on the screen.
The actors worked with associate producer and blindness consultant Joe Strechay for several weeks.
“Each episode has some blind actors or some low-vision actors,” series director and executive producer Francis Lawrence Tell The Wrap in 2019“We are absolutely trying to be as inclusive as possible. I will say that this season is the beginning, I still think we can do better. And I think we will try to do better, if we have a second season, including more Too many blind people-especially the more obvious characters, principals, and series regulars.”
Apple hasn’t released any announcements about how to deal with the new roles and positions of the Season 2 crew. I hope that throughout the second season can feel Lawrence’s desire to do better.
What can we expect from Season 2?
Given that the main plot point of Season 2 may involve trying to rescue Haniwa, joining Dave Bautista as Edo Voss will be a big deal.
There is no doubt that we will learn more about the backstory of Baba Voss in season 2. In the first season, we learned that Baba had a dark past with slave traders, even though we didn’t know much about the details. “I swear I will never come back here,” Babaworth said in the season 2 trailer as he prepared to face his brother. Obviously, he was guilty. “I know this enemy. I am this enemy,” he said.
Edo Voss is obviously a terrible bad guy and a fighter comparable to Baba. We learned that he controls “the most powerful army in the world.” Different factions are fighting for a new world order. It seems that Baba’s struggle to retake his daughter will be compared to the struggle of the world’s destiny.
Judging from the trailer, we will get more fighting scenes inspired by the iconic Japanese movie and TV character Zatoichi, a wandering swordsman who is almost unmatched. The fighting scenes of Baba Voss in the first season were absolutely stunning.
Apple remained silent on See Season 2. Trailers and casts are most of the content we have to deal with, so these are the main plot points we can infer right now.
This is what we know about See Season 2.
You can check it out on Apple TV Plus on August 27. Or catch up with the first season at any time before then.
