The Foundation is a science fiction streaming television series from the United States. It is based on Isaac Asimov’s Foundation and was created exclusively for Apple TV+ by David S. Goyer and Josh Friedman. Foundation Season 2 Release Date details are here.
Though it was heavily influenced by Asimov’s book, it deviated from it in many ways. The book focused on “wonder” at the beginning, growing up in a backward society, then going into a spaceship that did a series of jumps to get to Trantor, then the wonder of the space elevator. The world-building in the series is fantastic, the actors’ acting is superb, and the story is overall intriguing. What makes this even better is that it is not currently focused on personal emotional drama.
Foundation Season 2 Release Date
If you were wondering if Foundation would be renewed or canceled for another season, we have some good news for you. Foundation season one premiered on September 24, 2021, with two episodes on the same day, followed by one each week.

Foundation Season 2 Story
Nothing about what will occur during the season can currently be predicted. The series’ plot was inspired by Asimov’s book, but it veered off in so many other directions that, by the time the season was over, the story had fundamentally altered. The show’s director decided to cook up his own story and greatly added elements and scenes that are not in the books.
What could be the story, then? There are many unfinished plot lines and storylines from the previous season that must be continued and resolved in the upcoming season. Gyoer, one of the actors, confirmed that we will receive all the resolutions to the unresolved issues from season one in the upcoming season.
Additionally, he hinted at the possibility of certain season 1 event having an effect on the following season. While remaining mum on whether Gaal and Salvor’s relationship might develop in season 2, the showrunner for the drama did offer some background on how Gaal might respond to Salvor’s declaration.
The second season of the show will probably also include a significant amount of A Second Seldon Crisis. All we can say is that nothing is sure yet and anything can happen in the new season.
