What is See (TV) About?
‘See’ is an American science fiction drama television series, presenting a post-apocalyptic future where humans have lost the ability to see following a devastating virus. In this altered landscape, the ability to view the world visually has vanished for centuries, leading to new societal structures, cultures, and survival strategies based on the remaining senses. The premise of ‘See’ takes a dramatic turn with the birth of twins possessing the mythical power of sight. Their father, portrayed by Jason Momoa, faces the challenge of shielding his children from the antagonistic forces, particularly from a queen who perceives the twins as a threat. The series weaves a narrative of family, power struggles, and the redefinition of what it means to “see” in a world where vision is both unfamiliar and feared. With a cast that includes Alfre Woodard, Sylvia Hoeks, and Hera Hilmar, ‘See’ explores the dynamics of a community forged in darkness and the upheavals introduced by the reintroduction of sight. The show’s portrayal of a fundamentally altered humanity highlights the resilience and adaptability of people and raises profound questions about perception and reality in a civilization built without sight. ‘See’ premiered on Apple TV+ in November 2019, and over the course of its run, amassed a narrative that concluded with its third season in October 2022.
The first episode of See aired on November 01, 2019 and the most recent episode to air was on October 13, 2022.
