The Second Crisis Is Here

The first season of “Foundation” ended with a big revelation, that the Foundation’s true purpose was not to preserve knowledge but to create a new civilization outside of the Empire’s knowledge. Meanwhile, we learned of a conspiracy to contaminate the DNA of the emperor so that none of his clones would be as pure as the original. 

Now, the trailer for season 2 focuses on what will likely be the focus of the new season: a holy war. Following Seldon’s predictions, the Empire will face a crisis of religion, with leaders from all over trying to use sacred text to control the masses. And before you start worrying about the massive scope of the show getting out of hand, the showrunners have an eight-season plan already.

Season 2 will see several additions to the cast, like Isabella Laughland as a cleric evangelizing the Outer Reach for the Church of the Galactic Spirit, Kulvinder Ghir as Poly Verisof, a Hugh Cleric of the Church of the Galactic Spirit, Ben Daniels as the last general of the Empire’s Superliminal Fleet and would-be conqueror of the Foundation, and more.

“Foundation” season 2 will premiere on Apple TV+ summer 2023. 

Here’s the show’s synopsis.

Based on Isaac Asimov’s award-winning stories, the monumental adaptation of “Foundation” chronicles a band of exiles on their unprecedented journey to rebuild civilization amid the fall of the Galactic Empire. Crucial individuals transcending space and time are faced with deadly crises, shifting loyalties and complicated relationships that will ultimately determine the fate of humanity.
