Aquaman star Jason Momoa is finally getting his own TV show as part of Apple TV+’s lineup of original content. The up-and-coming star first made waves as Khal Drogo in Game of Thrones before getting killed off in the first season. Now it looks like he’s ready to play another fearsome warrior in the series See created by Peaky Blinders showrunner Steven Knight.

Based on the few brief glimpses we got, See has the potential to be Apple’s most intriguing show. It has epic world building while also asking deep question about humanity which could make the company’s first hit. It also has the potential to be Apple’s worst show too if it fails to strike the right balance.
