When not reigning monarch-like over all of the planet’s oceans as iconic DC superhero Aquaman, veteran actor Jason Momoa (Game of Thrones, Conan the Barbarian, Dune) can be seen delighting fans with his hit Apple series See. Those same fans woke up to some stellar news this morning with the announcement of an early renewal for the show’s third season, courtesy of the always-on-the-ball reporters over at The Hollywood Reporter. The neat aspect of this story- and its one that is becoming more and more of a thing in content-starved Hollywood as it pertains to even some of the more modestly rated ongoing series – is that the second season of this future-set opus won’t even debut until August. A sign of utmost confidence in See by streaming behemoth Apple, or a pressing need to feed the hungry beast known as streaming? You be the judge, Dear and Constant Reader.
See takes place in a distant future here on good ol’ Terra Firma and posits a scenario where all of humanity has lost the ability to – you guessed it – see. The loss of the sense of vision forces people to find new ways to interact with one another that presumably and hopefully has nothing to do with any sort of social media. Just when everyone has adjusted to their shortcomings, a set of twins with honest-to-Pete 20/20 vision is born, upheaving the status quo. The series stars Momoa, Hera Hilmarsdottir (Mortal Engines), Sylvia Hoeks (Blade Runner 2049), Nesta Cooper (Bliss) and Archie Madekwe (Midsommar).
Appearing on Thursday night’s edition of NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, See leading actor Jason Momoa announced the early renewal news. Striking while the iron’s hot, the third season of the series has already begun production in Toronto.
As mentioned above, the very early renewal of See follows a trend of other shows such as The Mosquito Coast and Bridgerton also receiving early callbacks. Geez, where were these corporate Big Wheels when shows such as My So-Called Life and Homefront desperately needed the lifeline of renewal? Hindsight; never a pretty picture…
While waiting for the third season of See, you can get excited for the second season which is set to premiere Friday, August 27 only on Apple TV+.
