Plot Synopsis

Based on Isaac Asimov's book series of the same name, FOUNDATION follows revolutionary Dr. Hari Seldon and a band of loyal followers venture to the far reaches of the galaxy to establish The Foundation in an attempt to rebuild and preserve the future of civilization. Enraged by Hari's claims about the impending fall of the Empire, the ruling Cleons -- a long line of emperor clones -- fear their grasp on the galaxy may be weakening as they're forced to reckon with the potential reality of losing their legacy forever. This group of exiles soon discover that the only way to save the Galactic Empire from destruction is to defy it. The first two episodes of FOUNDATION dropped on Friday, September 24, 2021 on Apple TV+, with the streaming service releasing a new episode each Friday through November 19.
On Friday, November 19, 2021, Apple TV+ released "The Leap," the season finale of FOUNDATION. An unexpected ally helps Salvor broker an alliance. A confrontation between the Brothers leads to unthinkable consequences.

Six weeks earlier -- on October 7 -- Apple TV+ renewed FOUNDATION for a second season.
