Apple TV+ just debuted the first teaser trailer for the second season of “Foundation,” revealing that the show will be back this coming Friday, 14 July.
From storyteller David S. Goyer, and based on Isaac Asimov’s award-winning stories and featuring an international cast led by Emmy-nominated actors Jared Harris and Lee Pace and rising stars Lou Llobell and Leah Harvey, season two takes place more than a century after the season one finale. As the Cleons unravel, a vengeful queen plots to destroy Empire from within. Hari, Gaal, and Salvor discover a colony of Mentalics with psionic abilities that threaten to alter psychohistory itself. The Foundation has entered its religious phase, promulgating the Church of Seldon throughout the Outer Reach and inciting the Second Crisis: war with Empire. The monumental adaptation of “Foundation” chronicles the stories of four crucial individuals transcending space and time as they overcome deadly crises, shifting loyalties and complicated relationships that will ultimately determine the fate of humanity.
The shows returning cast also includes Laura Birn, Cassian Bilton and Terrence Mann, whilst season two will introduce new characters and stars, including Isabella Laughland (Brother Constant), Kulvinder Ghir (Poly Verisof), Ella-Rae Smith (Queen Sareth of Cloud Dominion), Holt McCallany (Warden Jaegger Fount), Rachel House (Tellem Bond), Nimrat Kaur (Yanna Seldon), Ben Daniels (Bel Riose), and Dimitri Leonidas (Hober Mallow).
