Batista has landed a significant role in a new television series.
Deadline reports that the former WWE Champion has been added to the cast of Apple TV+’s “See” drama where he will co-star with Jason Momoa.
This will be the second season of the hit world-building drama series that was created by Steven Knight, best known as Peaky Blinders creator, and directed by Francis Lawrence.
Batista Lands Role
There’s no word yet on Batista’s character. An interesting note on the series features cast and crew who are blind or have low vision. This is done to help bring authenticity to the world.
“See” takes place in the distant future after a deadly virus decimated humankind. The people who survived were left blind. Momoa, starring as a character named Baba Voss, is the father of twins born centuries later with the mythic ability to see, who must protect his tribe against a powerful yet desperate queen who wants to destroy the twins.”
This marks the first big role on television for Batista. This is another accomplishment for him after having starred in several major motion pictures over the past few years.
As of this writing, there’s no word yet on when the second season of the show will premiere. The first season premiered back in November.
Batista is slated to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame during WrestleMania 36 weekend in April.
