Foundation: sneak peek

First look at the second season of Apple's sci-fi series.

Apple TV+ has shared a sneak peek at the second season of sci-fi series Foundation.

The next instalment of the epic saga produced by David S. Goyer and Skydance Television will make its global debut in winter.

Based on Isaac Asimov’s award-winning stories, the monumental adaptation of “Foundation” chronicles a band of exiles on their unprecedented journey to rebuild civilisation amid the fall of the Galactic Empire. Crucial individuals transcending space and time are faced with deadly crises, shifting loyalties and complicated relationships that will ultimately determine the fate of humanity.

“Foundation” stars SAG Award winner and Emmy Award nominee Jared Harris as ‘Dr. Hari Seldon’; Emmy Award nominee Lee Pace as ‘Brother Day’; Lou Llobell as ‘Gaal Dornick’; Leah Harvey as ‘Salvor Hardin’; Laura Birn as ‘Demerzel’; Terrence Mann as ‘Brother Dusk’; and, Cassian Bilton as ‘Brother Dawn.’ New stars joining the season two cast include Isabella Laughland (‘Brother Constant’), Kulvinder Ghir (‘Poly Verisof’), Sandra Yi Sencindiver (‘Enjoiner Rue’), Ella-Rae Smith (‘Queen Sareth of Cloud Dominion’), Dimitri Leonidas (‘Hober Mallow’), Ben Daniels (‘Bel Roise’), Holt McCallany (‘Warden Jaegger Fount’), Rachel House (‘Tellem Bond’) and Nimrat Kaur (‘Yanna Seldon’).

The drama is produced for Apple by Skydance Television and led by showrunner and executive producer David S. Goyer, with Robyn Asimov, Alex Graves, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Bill Bost also serving as executive producers.

  1. The first season was a bit of a mixed bag. It kind of misunderstood central aspects of the novels, giving it a current-era young adult style, generic sci-fi adaptation. It was fine. Yet the stuff they created for the show around that with Lee Pace’s characters was really good and top-tier stuff.

    1. Considering the budget needed to make these epic CGI heavy sci-fi ( and also fantasy) series showrunners ignoring sci-fi / fantasy fans and the original source material in a radical way from the Author / creators original intent smacks of pseudo-intellectualism, especially if it is not done particularly well, but the major production studios seem to be committed to going along with this political creative trend. For me Foundation was a passable series but not a binge watch, which for sci-fi fans is usually the best indicator of how successful any new show may become.
