‘Foundation’ trailer shows off the sci-fi epic ahead of Apple TV+ debut in 2021

We’ve known about Foundation since 2018, and now we know when we can finally see it make its Apple TV+ debut.

During its all-online Worldwide Developers Conference, Apple took a moment to discuss Apple TV+ content. Specifically, just one upcoming series: Foundation, which is based on the novels written by legendary author Isaac Asimov. This has always been billed as one of Apple’s largest productions, and one of the most exciting piece of original content coming to Apple TV+, and now we know what it will look like thanks to the first official trailer.

Here’s how Apple describes Foundation:

Based on the award-winning novels by Isaac Asimov, Foundation chronicles a band of exiles on their monumental journey to save humanity and rebuild civilization amid the fall of the Galactic Empire.

And now we know the series arrives sometime next year.

I’ll just get out of the way and let you check out the trailer:

As you can see, this looks stunning. The production levels here are amazing, and, at least based on the trailer, there is a lot to be looking forward to as far as Foundation is concerned. This is absolutely going to be the biggest spectacle for Apple TV+ to date — and that’s factoring in the fact that this won’t see the light of day until sometime in 2021.

Let’s get to the nitty gritty. Foundation stars SAG Award-winner and Emmy-nominee Jared Harris (ChernobylThe Terror) as Hari Seldon, while Lee Pace (The Guardians of the Galaxy) plays Brother Day. It also features Lou Llobell (Voyagers) will play Gaal, Leah Harvey (Fighting With My Family) is Salvor, Laura Birn (Void) as Demerzel, Terrence Mann (Critters) as Brother Dusk, and Cassian Bilton (If You Can Believe It) as Brother Dawn.

No specific launch date just yet, but 2021 can’t get here fast enough now.

Are you looking forward to seeing Foundation?
