See Season 2 Release Date, Cast, And Plot - What We Know So Far

The wait for "See" Season 2 has been a long one, but the Jason Momoa-led fantasy series is finally returning to our screens later this year. Set in a future where a deadly virus ravaged the earth and left humans without the ability of sight, the high concept show was a big swing for Apple TV+. And while critics weren't wild about the series — Season 1 has a 43% rating on Rotten Tomatoes — "See" has a passionate fanbase eagerly awaiting the premiere of Season 2, and that passion has even earned their favorite series an early Season 3 renewal (via Deadline).

Even though "See" didn't exactly wow critics, the ambitious series was praised for its inclusivity. The series includes a number of cast and crew members who are either blind or have low vision, and who were instrumental in crafting the epic drama's unique world. As viewers can attest, "See" is wholly unlike any other fantasy series out there in large part because the world-building is devoted to imagining what a society of people with no concept of vision would be like.

The hook of the series is two children with the ability to see are born into this world, and when word gets out, they become both feared and coveted. With everyone gunning for the twins, their surrogate father Baba Voss (Momoa) makes it his mission to protect them at any cost. However, by the end of Season 1, the twins were separated and a war was brewing that could change the characters' world forever.

When will See Season 2 be released on Apple TV+?

"See" Season 2 was one of the many television productions delayed by the pandemic, but thankfully, the cast and crew were able to safely finish filming the season on March 18, according to an Instagram post from series star Sylvia Hoeks. The show was then included in a 2021 sizzle reel for the streamer, suggesting an official release date announcement was likely forthcoming.

"See" requires substantial post-production work to prepare the show for screens, so it isn't exactly surprising that so much time has elapsed since filming wrapped on Season 2. That said, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. According to Deadline, Apple has set Friday, August 27 as the premiere date for the sophomore season of "See." Now we have something to look forward to as summer draws to a close.

Who is in the cast of See Season 2?

Despite the show's high stakes, most of the characters survived Season 1, so all of your favorites should be back. That includes Jason Momoa (Baba Voss), Sylvia Hoeks (Queen Kane), Hera Hilmar (Maghra), Alfre Woodard (Paris), Archie Madekwe (Kofun), and Nesta Cooper (Haniwa).

The only major cast member whose status remains unclear is Christian Camargo's. His character, Tamacti Jun, was the leader of the Witchfinder Army in Season 1, but he seemingly died on the battlefield. But as TV fans know all too well, looks can be deceiving, so don't count out Camargo appearing in "See" Season 2 in some capacity just yet.

In addition to the show's returning cast, two major new additions have been announced. As reported by Deadline, "Guardians of the Galaxy" actor Dave Bautista has joined the cast in an unspecified role, while "Highlander" favorite Adrian Paul is set to play Lord Harlan, the ruler of the kingdom's strongest city.

What is See Season 2 going to be about?

Apple TV+ has been careful not to drop any hints about what "See” Season 2 will actually be about, but the Season 1 finale does hold a few clues, as does the exciting Season 2 trailer. By the end of Season 1, the twins' biological father Jerlamarel (Joshua Henry) succeeded in splitting up Haniwa and Kofun, even though Baba Voss blinded him. That left Baba Voss and his son Kofun on the verge of setting out on a mission to get Haniwa back.

Meanwhile, Queen Kane and Maghra are now officially working together, and the Witchfinder Army is under their control. As a result, the kingdom is sure to feel more destabilized than ever before heading into Season 2. With a war looming on the horizon, viewers should expect all of the characters to be on edge, which will only make things more perilous for Baba Voss as he searches for his missing daughter.

Fans have been patiently waiting for "See" to continue, and now that production has wrapped, we should be getting answers to the show's biggest mysteries soon enough.
