We’re getting a deeper look at Foundation, Apple TV+’s highly anticipated, epic saga based on Isaac Asimov’s trilogy of the same name. The streaming service has released the official trailer for the series starring Jared Harris and Lee Pace.
In Foundation, 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 unrivaled reign may be weakening as they’re forced to reckon with the potential reality of losing their powerful legacy forever.
Also starring Lou Llobell and Leah Harvey, the adaptation chronicles the stories of four crucial individuals transcending space and time as they overcome deadly crises, shifting loyalties, and complicated relationships that will ultimately determine the fate of humanity. The Apple Original drama also stars Laura Birn, Terrence Mann, Cassian Bilton and Alfred Enoch.
Helmed by showrunner and exec producer David S. Goyer (Batman Begins, Man of Steel), the first season of Foundation will exclusively hit Apple TV+ worldwide on September 24, with the first two episodes available, followed by one new episode weekly, every Friday.
Foundation is produced for Apple by Skydance Television with Robyn Asimov, Josh Friedman, Cameron Welsh, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Bill Bost also serving as executive producers.
