Spectacular Trailer for the Apple TV+ Series Adaptation of Isaac Asimov’s Sci-Fi Classic FOUNDATION.
Apple TV+ has released a full trailer for its series adaption of Isaac Asimov’s sci-fi classic Foundation. It was announced that the 10-episode first season will premiere on September 24, 2021. The series will launch with the first three episodes, followed by one new episode weekly, every Friday.
The Foundation comes from showrunner and executive producer David S. Goyer (Batman Begins, Man of Steel).
In the show, “When revolutionary Dr. Hari Seldon 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.”
“This monumental journey 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.”
Goyer said in a statement, “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. 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 stars Jared Harris and Lee Pace, alongside rising stars Lou Llobell and Leah Harvey. It also stars Laura Birn, Terrence Mann, Cassian Bilton, and Alfred Enoch.
