Another superhero is about to join the ranks of the Apple TV+ show “See”. According to an exclusive report in Deadline, Dave Bautista, the actor best known for his role as Drax in the Marvel saga “Guardians of the Galaxy,” will play alongside Jason Momoa, of “Aquaman” fame, in the second season of the series created by Steven Knight (“Peaky Blinders”).

The story tells of a future in which the only survivors of an apocalyptic epidemic have lost all sense of sight. Jason Momoa plays Baba Voss, a blind chieftain whose twins are born with an extremely rare ability to see. As news spreads of the children’s extraordinary gift, their father must protect his family and his tribe, who are threatened by a terrible and powerful queen who is determined to kill the newborns, whom she believes to be the cursed brood of witches.

The day-to-day running of the second season, which has been developed in part by a visually impaired or blind cast and crew, has been entrusted to Jonathan Tropper who will act as showrunner and executive producer.
