AppleTV+ Announces Premiere Date for New Drama 'Foundation' Starring Jared Harris and Lee Pace

AppleTV+ has today announced the premiere date for the upcoming original drama series Foundation starring Jared Harris and Lee Pace.

The 10-episode first season will launch on Friday, September 24 with its first three episodes. New episodes will then be released weekly on the streaming service.

When revolutionary Dr. Hari Seldon (Harris) 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 (Pace) - 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.

This monumental journey 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.

In addition to Harris and Pace, the drama stars Lou Llobell, Leah Harvey, Laura Birn, Terrence Mann, Cassian Bilton and Alfred Enoch.

David S. Goyer developed the drama based on the novels by Isaac Asimov. He executive produces with Robyn Asimov, Josh Friedman, Cameron Welsh, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Bill Bost. Skydance Television produces.
