Isaac Asimov’s Foundation series of novels spans thousands of years, making it a difficult proposition, but David S. Goyer is giving it his best shot with the Apple TV+ series of the same name. The first season of Foundation ended over a year ago, but the streaming service has finally released one special first-look trailer for Season 2, which you can check out above.
The monumental processing of Foundation chronicles”a group of exiles on their unprecedented journey to rebuild civilization amidst the fall of the Galactic Empire. Transcending space and time, decisive individuals face deadly crises, shifting loyalties, and complicated relationships that will ultimately determine the fate of humanity.” Apple TV+ renewed the series for one second season shortly after the first season debuted on the streaming service.
Foundation stars Jared Harris as Dr. Harry Seldon, Lee Pace as Brother Day, Lou Lobell as Gaal Dornick, Leah Harvey as Salvor Hardin, Laura Birn as Demerzel, Terrence Mann as Brother Dusk and Cassian Bilton as Brother Dawn. New additions for the second season include Isabella Laughland as Brother Constant, Kulvinder Ghir as Poly Verisof, Sandra Yi Sencindiver as Enjoiner Rue, Ella-Rae Smith as Queen Sareth of Cloud Dominion, Dimitri Leonidas as Hober Mallow, Ben Daniels as Bel Roise, Holt McCallany as Warden Jaegger Fount, Rachel House as Tellem Bond and Nimrat Kaur as Yanna Seldon. I haven’t seen the first season of the sci-fi series so I can speak to how closely it follows Isaac Asimov’s novels, but the trailer looks suitably epic, not to mention beastly.
Our own Alex Maidy reviewed the first season of Foundation upon release, and while he enjoyed it, he wondered if those unfamiliar with the story would be able to get on board. “Foundation has a dedicated fanbase that has been waiting years to finally see this adaptation,Maidy wrote. “Overall, they should be satisfied with this series, while newcomers may be overwhelmed by the slow-burn story. There’s a lot to unpack here, and I found that with each subsequent episode I was more invested in the story, but I’m not sure if the general audience will be invested enough to see this through to the end. Those who do will be rewarded with high drama and spectacular visuals, but it will take some patience to get there.You can check out the rest of Maidy’s review right here.
Second season of Foundation doesn’t have an official release date yet, but it will debut in the summer of 2023.
