Apple TV+ Renews ‘Foundation’ for Season 3

The hit series, based on Isaac Asimov’s famed Hugo Award-winning sci-fi trilogy, will continue to riff on Dr. Hari Seldon’s mathematical predictions; Season 1 and 2 are streaming now.

Apple TV+ has renewed its hit sci-fi series Foundation for a third season, according to Variety. The show is based on Isaac Asimov’s seminal sci-fi trilogy, which begins with Dr. Hari Seldon’s mathematical predictions of the galactic future. Season 2 recently aired its finale on September 15.

“I’m thrilled Apple has given us the opportunity to continue chronicling Asimov’s pioneering galactic saga,” said showrunner and executive producer David S. Goyer. “This time, the stakes for Foundation and Empire are even higher as the Mule takes center stage, along with fan-favorites Bayta,Toran, Ebling, and Magnifico Giganticus.”

The monumental adaptation of Asimov’s Hugo Award-winning intergalactic book series 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. When revolutionary Dr. Seldon predicts the impending fall of the Empire, he 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.

“We have all been incredibly impressed with the ambitious, action-packed and imaginative adaptation that David and the rest of this gifted creative team and cast have brought to life with this premium sci-fi series from day one,” said Matt Cherniss, head of programming for Apple TV+. “To watch ‘Foundation’ become such a global hit has been beyond exciting with audiences around the world continuing to be captivated week after week by this dramatic and compelling journey to save humanity. We can’t wait for everyone to experience what is in store for characters old and new in season three.”

The show features an international cast that includes Emmy nominees Jared Harris and Lee Pace, alongside rising stars Lou Llobell and Leah Harvey; it also stars Laura Birn, Terrence Mann, Cassian Bilton, and Alfred Enoch.

The series is led by showrunner and executive producer David S. Goyer and produced for Apple by Skydance Television, with Robyn Asimov, Josh Friedman, Cameron Welsh, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Bill Bost also serving as executive producers.

The futuristic VFX is led by Chris Maclean and Michael Enriquez with the help of Accenture Song VFX, Chicken Bones FX, Cinesite, Crafty Apes, DNEG, Mackevision, Outpost VFX, Rocket Science VFX, Rodeo FX, Scanline VFX, and Spin VFX.
