UPDATE: The original version of this story inaccurately mentioned a second season renewal for Amazing Stories, but this was a misconception by our reporter at the TCAs. Our corrected story follows below.
Apple TV+ presented panels on the last day of the Television Critics Association winter press tour. The streamer finally announced premiere date for the long-awaited reboot of Steven Spielberg’s anthology series Amazing Stories. The revival of the series has been one of the cornerstones of Apple’s originals slate, but this is the first word we’ve gotten on when the show will arrive, and it also came with an Amazing Stories first look photo.

One of Apple TV’s first major shows, See, couldn’t have been more in director and executive producer Francis Lawrence‘s wheelhouse. The director behind The Hunger Games sequels, I Am Legend, and Constantine is no stranger to expansive fantastical worlds. Created by Steven Knight (Peaky Blinders), See presents a future where sight is a thing of the past. No one can see, which presents the visual challenges Lawrence relishes as a director.
It’s not the first time Lawrence has defined the aesthetic and tone of a show as a filmmaker. He directed three episodes of NBC’s Kings, which was a short-lived but entertaining show that probably would’ve resonated more today, and the premiere of Tim Kring‘s Touch. All high-concept projects. Recently, we talked to Lawrence about the type of material that appeals to him, including See, as well as growing as a director and his most-watched work, Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance” video.
