The Jason Mamoa-starring Apple TV+ post-apocalyptic drama series See will resume shooting its second season next month, according to a report from Deadline.

Season two of the show will reportedly resume filing on October 14 in Toronto. Filming will continue (unless there’s another COVID-prompted shutdown) through March 2021.

There’s no data announced for the second season to arrive on Apple TV+. The first season was part of the first wave of shows to launch with Apple TV+ in November 2019.

The new season will add muscle-bound actor Dave Bautista to the cast. Bautista previously starred in Guardians of the Galaxy and James Bond movie Spectre. He’s also well known to wrestling fans as former WWE champion Batista.

See is set in a terrible future world in which a virus has adversely affected humankind. (This all qualified as science fiction when season one was made.) In the world of See, however, this virus eradicated sight. The idea of a person being able to see has become a taboo myth. During season one, two children were born with the gift of sight. Mamoa’s character is their guardian.

Apple does not reveal audience ratings for its Apple TV+ shows. But See, from available evidence, seems to be one of its bigger hits. On Rotten Tomatoes, the review aggregation site, it has more than 1,000 reviews. That suggests that it’s one of the more watched shows on the service. Like many Apple TV+ shows, See is more popular with audiences than it is with critics. On Rotten Tomatoes, it has an audience rating of 85% approval, versus just 43% approval from critics.
