Apple has renewed its upcoming sci-fi series ‘Foundation’ for season 2 ahead of its season 1 premiere on September 24. The news comes when production for the second season is currently underway in Ireland since last month.
The filming on ‘Foundation’ season 2 will continue till May 2022 and it will also shoot at different locations in Europe, reportedly. The decision of renewal hasn't been made public yet by Apple. The first season which is set to premiere on Sept. 24 is currently in post-production.
The second season of the show will also have 10 episodes like the upcoming first season. According to a report published last year, producers of the show reportedly asked Apple for assurance of up to 5 seasons. Also in an interview, showrunner David Goyer said that he is ambitiously hopeful to get 80 hours to tell the complete sci-fi story written by Isaac Asimov on Apple TV+.
The first season which will have 10-episode chronicles the epic saga of The Foundation chronicles a band of exiles on their monumental journey to save humanity and rebuild civilization amid the fall of the Galactic Empire.
When revolutionary Dr. Hari Seldon (Harris) foresees the Empire's oncoming demise, he and a band of devoted followers travel to the farthest regions of the galaxy to found The Foundation in an attempt to reconstruct and save civilization's future. Infuriated by Hari’s claims, the ruling Cleons — a long line of emperor clones — fear their grasp on the galaxy may be eroding as they’re forced to reckon with the possible reality of losing their legacy forever.
Foundation is led by showrunner and executive producer David S. Goyer, produced for Apple by Skydance Television with Robyn Asimov, Cameron Welsh, David Ellison, Josh Friedman, Dana Goldberg, and Bill Bost also serving as executive producers.
Foundation stars Jared Harris as Dr. Hari Seldon; Lou Llobell as Gaal Dornick; Lee Pace as Brother Day; Leah Harvey as Salvor Hardin; Laura Birn as Demerzel; Terrence Mann as Brother Dusk; Cassian Bilton as Brother Dawn; and Alfred Enoch as Raych.
