The first trailer for Foundation season 2 has been released – along with the release window for the next part of this blockbuster sci-fi epic.
Posted on various Apple TV Plus social media channels on January 4, the first trailer for Foundation season 2, um, teases what to expect ahead of the return of the Apple TV Plus show. Additionally, the trailer confirms when one of the best Apple TV Plus shows will return to our screens: mid-2023.
Take a look at the first footage from Season 2 of Foundation below:
The teaser begins with a montage of clips from the first season of the sci-fi series, which ended with Salvor Hardin (Leah Harvey) meeting her mother Gaal Dornick (Lou Llobell) for the first time, and discovering that all is well with Emperor Cleon’s cloning program .
However, just when you start to think the trailer only features footage you’ve seen before, it cuts to scenes from the next season of Foundation. It’s here, around 1am, that Apple confirms that its fan-favorite TV show will premiere this summer (it’s winter for those in the southern hemisphere).
There’s not much we can infer from the Season 2 footage other than the fact that the second Seldon Crisis – events that will test the strength of the Foundation and its people – will form the basis of the show’s next batch of episodes. We also see Salvor being overwhelmingly greeted as a messianic figure by some masked individuals, plenty of action-packed moments (mostly involving Gaal), and plenty of spectacular sci-fi shots. Oh, and the final shot of what appears to be a new alien life form appearing aboard a spaceship. oh oh
The first trailer for the second season of The Foundation and the announcement of the release window are the first official news we’ve received on the subject since February 2022. That’s when Apple released the first image from the show’s second year, which showed Lee Pace’s Brother Day engaging in a tense conversation with the version AI Hari Seldon Jared Harris. In addition to the image, Apple has confirmed a number of new cast members for the series’ next appearance, including actors who will play important characters in Bel Riose and Hober Mallow.
The second season of Foundation is produced for Apple TV Plus by Skydance Television, with David S. Goyer returning as showrunner-executive producer. Robyn Asimov, Alex Graves, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Bill Bost also returned as executive producers.
Here’s that major release date again: The Foundation’s second season will debut exclusively on Apple TV Plus in Q2 2023.
