A premiere date has finally been announced for Apple TV+’s Foundation! The 10-episode sci-fi series will land on the streaming service in just a few month’s time on September 24.

Foundation, which is based on the award-winning novels by Isaac Asimov, is a monumental journey that 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. Hari 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. Enraged by Hari’s claims, 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.

Foundation stars Jared Harris as Hari Seldon, Lee Pace as Brother Day, Lou Llobell as Gaal Dornick, Leah Harvey as Salvor Hardin, Laura Birn as Eto Demerzel, Cassian Bilton as Brother Dawn, Terrence Mann as Brother Dusk, Alfred Enoch and more.

A new trailer for the series was also released today. Watch it below.

This marks the first-ever on-screen adaptation of Asimov’s series. David S. Goyer (Batman Begins, Man of Steel) serves as showrunner and executive producer.

Foundation is produced for Apple by Skydance Television. Robyn Asimov, Josh Friedman, Cameron Welsh, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Bill Bost also serve as executive producers.

The first three episodes of Foundation — the sci-fi saga that started it all — will land exclusively on Apple TV+ on September 24. New episodes will then drop every Friday on a weekly basis.
