See (2019 -)

In the future, a virus wipes out the sense of sight, and humanity is whittled down to less than 2 million people. Society has become tribal and nomadic, relying on their sense of sound, smell and vibrations to create a sustainable life. The people of this new world believe that sight is a myth and to speak of it is heresy. The Alkhenny tribe is led by Baba Voss (Jason Mamoa), a fierce protector of his people. The Alkhenny have taken in a pregnant woman, Maghra (Hera Hilmar), who Baba Voss takes for his wife and adopts her twins. They are no ordinary children, though. Their father is Jerlamarel (Joshua Henry), a heretic and outsider on the run because he can see, and he has passed this trait down to his children. They are being tracked by the vicious Queen Kane (Sylvia Hoeks) and her witchfinder Tamacti Jun (Christian Camargo), determined to find the offending sighted man and his offspring. Through Paris (Alfre Woodard), the shaman and instructions from Jerlamarel, they find safety hidden beyond their treacherous home.

It’s a dangerous world, barbaric and ruthless, full of legends, mystical beliefs and betrayal. With a harsh wildness and enemy armies in pursuit, Baba Voss and his tribe must protect the children and thwart evil forces.

Going into its third season, See offers a complex universe that speculates how the world would function without the sense of sight. Written by Stephen Knight and directed by Francis Lawrence, See is filmed in the lush landscapes of British Columbia and Toronto and comes complete with a great international cast.
