'See' Season 2: Release date, plot, cast, trailer and all you need to know about the Jason Momoa-starrer drama
Apple's streaming service Apple+ boasts a very interesting show in its library — 'See'. The sci-fi drama features a star-studded cast including 'Game of Thrones' alum Jason Momoa, Alfre Woodard, Sylvia Hoeks, Hera Hilmar and Christian Camargo and quickly became a favourite among viewers.
The series is set centuries in the future after an apocalyptic event kills most of the Earth's population and leaves its survivors blind. This trait is passed down through generations. Human beings have evolved to live with this. When the series is being made, we see society at a pre-industrial stage where developments are being made to help the blinds survive the world. The power of sight is considered heresy. When Momoa's Baba Voss and his partner Hilmar's Maghra discover that their children are able to see, appropriate action must be taken to make sure that those hungry for power do not seek the children out.
Fans are very keen on Season 2 of the dystopian show. "Our strength is not over. The tribe will return," promised the show's official Twitter handle when a fan commented asking for Season 2.
The release date for the second season of 'See' is not confirmed yet. MEA WorldWide (MEAWW) will update the article when it is.
The end of Season 1 left the audience with a lot of questions and the expectation of huge power clashes. Season 2 should be focusing on Baba Voss' attempts to save his daughter while Maghara and Queen Kane rebuild an army after the death of Witchfinder General (although it is implied that he may rise like a phoenix in Season 2) and the destruction of the Payan Kingdom.
Jason Momoa as Baba Voss
As Baba Voss, Momoa plays the role of a skilled warrior and leader of the Alkenny tribe. His children Kofun and Haniwa were born with the power of sight. He is going to leave no stone unturned to rescue Haniwa and keep his children safe.
