The series is set in a distant future, after a deadly virus decimated humankind — and those who survived emerged blind. Momoa stars as Baba Voss, the father of twins born centuries later with the ability to see. With the help of spiritual leader Paris (played by Oscar nominee Alfre Woodard), Baba Voss must protect his tribe against a powerful yet desperate queen who wants the twins destroyed.
No details about Bautista’s character are currently available.
