The second season of See is off to a strong start. The fantasy drama starring Jason Momoa and Dave Bautista recently returned to Apple TV+, and there clearly a lot of anticipation built up. Viewership is reportedly up 30%.

Enough people are tuning in to give See the strongest sophomore season of any drama on Apple’s streaming service.

For season 2 of See, show creator Steven Knight warms up a second helping of his weird, post-apocalyptic gumbo for Apple TV+. This time, he spices things up with a key ingredient — the inimitable Dave Bautista — that almost redeems See’s crazy mix of bizarre rituals, bombastic fight scenes and bad dialogue.

The addition of Bautista proves most welcome indeed. The former pro wrestler and Guardians of the Galaxy star lends his steely gravitas to a sprawling show that wants nothing more than to make its mark as a sci-fi epic.

In season 2, which kicks off on Apple TV+ today, we learn a lot more about living in a blind society. And we come to grips with a blood feud that will haunt all concerned.
