APPLE TV FOUNDATION. The science fiction series adapting the work of Isaac Asimov returns for a season 2 this Friday, July 14, 2023.

The Foundation series returns for its season 2. The new episodes of the science fiction series adapting the work of Isaac Asimov are broadcast on Apple TV (available via MyCanal) from this Friday, July 14, 2023.

This season 2 will take place 100 years after the events of the first season of Foundation. The Cleons gradually lose power as Hari, Gaal, and Salvor discover the colony of Mentaclics. At the same time, a war between the Empire and the Church of Seldon, the Second Crisis, is likely to wreak havoc. Below, you can find the teaser for this second burst of episodes.

In the distant future, psycho-historian Hari Seldon predicts that the Galactic Empire will collapse and be followed by thirty millennia of a dark age. In an attempt to reduce the duration of this universal collapse as much as possible, the mathematician proposes the creation of a Foundation, a planet populated by scientists whose goal is to create an exhaustive encyclopedia of all human knowledge. This is the premise of the Foundation cycle started by Russian-American writer Isaac Asimov in the 1950s. Seventy years later, a television series adaptation sees the light of day on Apple TV. The opportunity to find out if this series of science fiction novels can also be entitled to a prestigious adaptation.

Composed of ten episodes, this first season features Jared Harris (Chernobyl) in the role of the visionary psycho-historian Hari Seldon. We can also discover Lee Pace (The Hobbit) as Brother Day, who seems to be inspired by the character of the Emperor in the first novel of the Foundation Cycle. Note that the adaptation of the SF saga is anything but simple given its structure. Indeed, each major chapter of the story takes place several decades after the previous one. A major challenge for the screenwriters but also for the casting managers since the number of actors should be, in fact, quite large.

The Foundation series has been broadcast since September 24, 2021 exclusively on the Apple TV platform. As a reminder, this is a subscription streaming platform that gives access to many television series and films for the price of €4.99 per month. Season 2 is available from July 14, 2023.

In the streaming market, many platforms have launched themselves in the wake of Netflix. To attract as many subscribers as possible, most produce their own series. Foundation is an exclusive broadcast of the Apple TV platform which, as the name suggests, is owned by tech giant Apple. It is also possible to have access to it by having a subscription to a Canal offer.
