Apple TV+ on Monday unveiled a new teaser and premiere date for its upcoming sci-fi series Foundation, starring Jared Harris and Lee Pace.
Set to debut on Apple on Friday, September 24, Foundation is based on Isaac Asimov’s novel series of the same name. The 10-episode series chronicles the epic saga of The Foundation, a band of exiles who discover that the only way to save the Galactic Empire from destruction is to defy it. The series hails from showrunner and executive producer David S. Goyer.
When revolutionary Dr. Hari Seldon (Harris) predicts the impending fall of the Empire, he and a band of loyal followers venture to the far reaches of the galaxy to establish The Foundation in an attempt to rebuild and preserve the future of civilization. Enraged by Hari’s claims, the ruling Cleons — a long line of emperor clones — fear their grasp on the galaxy may be weakening as they’re forced to reckon with the potential reality of losing their legacy forever.
Foundation is produced for Apple by Skydance Television with Robyn Asimov, Josh Friedman, Cameron Welsh, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Bill Bost serving as executive producers.
