See It may not be the biggest darling of critics so far, but that doesn't mean that Apple is giving up one of its biggest budget series. On the contrary: according to RadioTimes, a second season production is already confirmed.
The news does not come from Apple itself and therefore should be treated as expectation until further notice. Still, the co-star Alfre Woodard said in an interview with the site that the whole thing is already basically right:
Believe me, we already spent the money. We will definitely be back for the second season.
The protagonist Jason Momoa also touched on the subject, but was a little more cautious: "Unofficial Good, you didn't hear that from me" The fact that, with all this budget, it's very difficult for Apple to cancel one of its main early series in season one so yes we can basically confirm a second season of See soon.
The second season of the series may still be undefined, but the first as well as the Apple TV + as a whole will debut tomorrow with its first three episodes. And to catalyze the hype, Apple today released a featurette (kind of trailer interspersed with cast / crew testimonials and behind-the-scenes footage) of the production.
The video brings some details about the production process of See, as a testimonial from consultant Joe Strechay, who trained the actors in the process of composing the (almost) blind characters. We also get a chance to see some more scenes from the series, with breathtaking images.
Better than "Game of Thrones"?
Not the first time we've heard comparisons between See and "Game of Thrones". Some say, based on their theme and environment, that the Apple series is a kind of "spiritual successor" to the HBO blockbuster, which ended a few months ago.
For Momoa who, besides being the protagonist of See, has also been to "Game of Thrones" He talked about these comparisons and has no doubt that Apple's production, at least for him, comes out ahead. In interview for Sky news, the actor said the following:
Nothing compares to "Game of Thrones". For me, one of the best series in recent history. And, you know, this is the first season See). They are so different worlds not to compare. But personally? This is better for me.
Of course, Momoa is not the most reliable source on this subject: while he was living a minor character who participated only in the initial season of "Game of Thrones", in See It has the role of protagonist and much more talk and screen time. The actor notes that Apple's production "has its own world, which is very beautiful" and that the only thing the series has in common is that it is in both. We will see.
In the same interview, Momoa and his castmates celebrated the opportunity that See opens for hiring actors blind or visually impaired varied. As is well known, the series takes place in a post-apocalyptic future where almost all of humanity has lost its ability to see, and Apple has taken the opportunity to value actors with related disabilities.
The actress Marilee Talkington, who is legally blind, stated the following:
Hopefully, this will create more opportunities for blind actors to be hired. They need training, they need exposure. See It's a series that if we catch the rhythm and do a few more seasons, surely we (the blind actors) will get closer and closer to the main characters, so we're kind of sowing the ground for that to happen.
Good news, isn't it?
