Cast and plot of the Foundation
After the major first crisis, Dr. Hari Seldon appeared to the Foundation community in his digitized/hologram form, promising suggestions for the next stages. We are optimistic that another crisis will arise during Season 2 of Foundation, so we can expect to see digital Hari and Jared Harris play a prominent role once more.
By Episode 10 of Season 1, the dictatorial Cleon clone kings of Trantor and rulers of the Galactic Empire, brothers Dawn, Day, and Dusk, had settled their problems with the defective Brother Dawn, but they were shaken, and enraged by the complex plot against them, which eventually was defeated.
However, the Foundation has now led the Empire to believe that their project was destroyed by a massive solar flare in the outer galaxy via a clever use of the Invictus spaceship. This clever idea was of course suggested by super-genius Hari Seldon. So will the Clone kings now leave that part of the universe alone so that the humans there may simply continue developing into the Foundation of Haris' dreams in season 2? We do not believe that it will be that simple.
Foundation Season 1's last scenes take place 138 years later than the first episodes, which is the time it took for Haris math genius Gaal Dornick to travel in a cryopod to arrive on her home planet of Syntax. She discovers the world in complete ruin except for an underwater flashing beacon. She then swims down to find another cryopod with Salvor Hardin inside.
Salvor had discovered in the last episode that she was the daughter of Gaal and Rayh Foss from the embryo they shared, which was placed inside surrogate mother Mari. Salvor then gives Gaal the cube she used to open Haris Vault on Terminus.
Jared Harris, Lee Pace, Lou Llobell, Leah Harvey, Terrence Mann, Chipo Chung, and Cassian Bilton are expected to reprise their roles. Others might include Alfred Enoch, Cooper Carter, Reece Shearsmith, Clarke Peters, Sasha Behar, Daniel MacPherson, and others in the recurring roles.
The release date for Foundation Season 2 has been set.
Apple TV+ renewed Foundation for a second season on October 7, 2021, so we can anticipate it to be released sometime towards the end of 2022. However, a formal release date has yet to be announced.
The upcoming season might have ten episodes as the first season. Phantom Four and Skydance Television produce the series and are distributed by Apple Inc.
