A brand new teaser has been unveiled for Apple TV+’s Foundation, an epic saga from showrunner and executive producer, David S. Goyer (Batman Begins, Man of Steel).
Watch it here…
In Foundation, revolutionary Dr. Hari Seldon predicts the impending fall of the Empire, so 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.
This ten-episode series marks the first-ever on screen adaptation of Isaac Asimov’s iconic, award-winning novel series of the same name.
“In the decades since the ‘Foundation‘ series first saw print, Asimov’s prophetic science-fiction work has never been more relevant than it is now,” said Goyer. “Growing up, I devoured ‘Foundation‘ and dreamed of one day seeing it on screen – but a feature film didn’t seem big enough to embrace the ambition.
“Thanks to the broader landscape of streaming and a valuable partnership with Apple and Skydance, we are able to bring the series to the screen in a way that truly does it justice. ‘Foundation’ has always been at the top of my bucket list and I’m honored I get to play a part in finally bringing it to life. Whether you’re a fan of the novels or simply someone craving a mind-blowing epic, I’m excited to share with you what we’ve created.”
The series Jared Harris (Carnival Row), Lee Pace (Guardians of the Galaxy), Lou Llobell (Voyagers), Leah Harvey (Fighting with My Family), Laura Birn (The Innocents), Terrence Mann (Sense8), Cassian Bilton and Alfred Enoch (How to Get Away with Murder).
Foundation will debut globally on Apple TV+ on September 24, 2021 with the first three episodes, followed by one new episode weekly, every Friday.
