Holy War Arrives This Summer

The Second Crisis is about to begin.

Apple TV+ has released the first trailer and release window for Season 2 of Foundation, its epic sci-fi adaptation of Isaac Asimov‘s literary work. The story follows a group of renegades who challenge the Galactic Empire to prevent the destruction of humanity.

Season 1 of Foundation follows the psychohistorian Hari Seldon (Jared Harris) as he comes up with a formula that perfectly predicts the end of the Galactic Empire and the destruction of human society. To preserve knowledge and ensure humanity can thrive in the future, Hari helps build the Foundation, a group of rebels that defy the Empire once those in charge refuse to heed Hari’s warning. The series story spans hundreds of years, while multiple groups fight to control the destiny of humankind.


The new trailer focused on the Foundation’s sacrifices, underlining how they left their homes and their lives for their goal. However, their mission is far from over because, after the fall of the Empire, the Foundation will still have to rebuild society. In Season 2, the Foundation will face the Crisis of Religion, as leaders start to use words of the divine to control the hopeless people who struggle after the fall of the Empire.
