Apple Unveils First Trailer for Foundation, Adaptation of Acclaimed Novels by Isaac Asimov

Apple presents the first trailer for ‘Foundation,’ the television series adaptation of the acclaimed novels by Isaac Asimov.

Apple TV + has released the first trailer for Foundation, the television series adaptation of the acclaimed novels written by Isaac Asimov between 1942 and 1992, separated into three cycles.

In the trailer, we can see the Galactic Empire knowing of the threat that could destroy everything discovered by Hari Seldon. This unleashes a series of events that seek to preserve some of the essential aspects of society so that future civilizations have a solid foundation on which to develop.

The series adaptation of Fundación was initially conceived as three films but was decided on via television. It was originally produced and broadcast on HBO with Jonathan Nolan ( Westworld ) at the helm. But we can finally see it on Apple TV +, with David S. Goyer (screenwriter of Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy) as creator and showrunner.

The Foundation’s cast will be top-notch, with Jared Harris, Lee Pace, Lou Lobell, Leah Harvey, Laura Born, Cassian Bilton, Terrence Mann, and Alfred Enoch.

The goal of ‘Foundation’: eighty episodes

With such a long history, spanning 14 books organized into three different cycles – Earth Cycle, the Galactic Empire trilogy, and the Foundation cycle – Goyer intends to adapt the entire story of the saga into about eighty episodes.

The goal is to tell the whole story over eighty episodes or eighty hours rather than trying to condense it all into two or three hours in a single movie.

For now, the first season of Fundación on Apple TV + will have ten episodes. Keeping that pace, the producers of the series could adapt the entire story of the novels in eight seasons. We hope they can do so. The first and second episodes will arrive on September 24.
