Although the second seasons have been commissioned for all but See series, the streaming service has given them official greenlights for future chapters, just in time to start production for most shows whose future seasons are already planned.
Starring Jason Momoa and Alfre Woodard and created by Steven Knight (Peaky Blinders), See is a series of towering concepts that occurs in a future where humanity has lost the ability to perceive the world in sight. Follows the story of fearless leader Baba Voss, father of twins born centuries later, with the mythic ability to see – who must protect his tribe against a powerful and desperate queen who believes she is witchcraft and wants them destroyed.
Although critics praised his intriguing concept and cast performances, he received mixed reviews for relying on awful and complicated narratives, although he received more positive reviews from the public.
Starring Steve Carell, Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, Apple drama The Morning Show follows the lies of people who wake up before dawn and do the morning talk shows on TV. The series was inspired by journalist Brain Stelter's novel Top of the Morning: Inside the Cutthroat World of Morning TV. The series comes from Jay Carson of The Front Runner, and has received mixed and positive reviews from critics so far, most of whom praise the performances of Aniston and Witherspoon.

For All Mankind, starring Joel Kinnaman, explores what would have happened if the global space race never ended. The drama features an aspirational world where astronauts, engineers and their NASA families meet at the center of extraordinary events viewed through the prism of an alternate timeline of history – a world in which the USSR beats the US on the moon. The series is receiving more positive reviews than its counterparts, with praise for the groundbreaking storyline of an alternate story.
Starring Hailee Steinfeld as the titular rebel, the series takes place during Emily Dickinson's era with a modern sensibility and tone. It takes viewers into Emily's world, boldly exploring the constraints of society, gender, and family from the perspective of a novice writer who doesn't fit his own time through his imaginative point of view. Dickinson is Emily's adult story – a woman's struggle to hear her voice. Like Humanity, the drama of the period is also receiving more positive reviews from critics and audiences alike for its mix of millennial existentialism and period drama, as well as Steinfeld's performance.
