The forthcoming Apple TV+ sci-fi series Foundation will premiere on September 24, it was announced on Monday. The first three episodes of the 10-episode season will land on that day, with one new episode being released every Friday after that.
Feature Film Not ‘Big Enough’
Foundation on Apple TV+ will be the first-ever on-screen adaptation of Isaac Asimov’s award-winning novel series of the same name. It is led by showrunner and executive producer David S. Goyer, who commented:
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.
