Apple TV+ has revealed the first trailer for the upcoming season 2 of the sci-fi series, Foundation, while also confirming that ‘Foundation’ Season 2 will release in the Summer of 2023.
The second season sneak-peek gives us the first look at the upcoming crisis. The trailer, which focuses on Gaal (Lou Llobell) shows she is taking the next step of the mission of the Foundation as a new crisis seems to appear. The first season was set in two different time zones, and at the end of the first season, Gaal was 138 years into the future, where she meets her daughter Salvor Hardin.
The second season is likely to focus more on the story of Gaal and Salvor while delving into the second crisis. Although the time jump has already been confirmed, Season 2 can still be divided into two periods. On the Empire front, Season 2 may explain how the change in the DNA of the clones may have affected Brother Day and his predecessors and since the DNA of Cleon I was altered long back, how the future of the Empire and its successors are going be affected.
In the season one finale of Foundation, Hari, a second digital copy of the original, explains that the Foundation's true purpose was to forge a new civilization with the help of Anacreon and Thespis and suggests using the Invictus to fake a "megaflare" to make it appear Terminus had been purged of life, allowing the Outer Reach to develop in secret from the Empire. Gaal lands on Synnax in 12,240 E.I., and in the ruins of her hometown, she discovers another pod underwater in spaceship wreckage and awakens Salvor, who tells her she is her daughter. Salvor then bestows Hari Seldon's Prime Radiant upon her.
‘Foundation’ Season 2 is still in post-production after it wrapped up filming last year in July. The series is already renewed for Season 3, which will begin filming in April in the Czech Republic. Although it's only confirmed that season 2 will premiere this Summer, we can expect ‘Foundation’ Season 2 to release in July 2023.
Season One of Foundation is led by 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.
