Foundation (Foundation), the sci-fi TV series that premiered last month on Apple TV +, will have a second season.
Apple’s announcement comes after the airing of just the first three installments of the show based on the literary trilogy of the same name Isaac Asimov made up of novels Foundation (1951), Foundation and Empire (1952) and Second Foundation (1953).
This demonstrates both the positive impact of the Foundation on the public, and how much the Cupertino Apple firmly believes in this ambitious project, so much so that the Apple top management have confirmed David S. Goyer in the role of showrunner.
What awaits us in the second season of the Foundation?
Goyer himself (“Batman Begins”, “The Man of Steel”) offered some advances on what will happen in Foundation 2:
Since my childhood, I have dreamed of how Hari Seldon and Eto Demerzel would look and how they would look, how Terminus and Trantor would feel. Now, with the second season, our audiences will be able to visit other characters and indelible worlds of Asimov, including Hober Mallow, General Bel Riose and all the Outer Suns.
I am really excited that a whole new generation of fans is approaching Asimov’s brilliant work. A real masterpiece. We are playing the long game with Foundation and I am grateful to my partners at Apple and Skydance for entrusting me with this epic.
Fasten your seatbelts.
Plot and details of the Foundation TV series
