The first season ended in 2021, and now, finally, we have a release date for The Foundation season 2, along with a teaser trailer that will only make you more impatient to watch the second season.
Furthermore, Foundation season 2 will prove that all empires can fall and take place before and during the events of the Second Crisis. Apple TV+ has shared more details regarding this latest season, and here is all the intel on it.
Foundation Season 2 Release Date
Foundation season 2 will premiere its first episode on July 14, 2023, on Friday on Apple TV+. The rest of the episodes will release one by one every Friday.
The second season will also have ten episodes like the first one.
Foundation Season 2 Trailer
Apple TV+ shared the official teaser trailer for Foundation season 2 while announcing its release date. The 1-minute and 31 seconds teaser gives a glimpse of the drama about to unfold in the second season as the uprising begins to overthrow the Empire. The teaser trailer also confirms that the events of Foundation season 2 are taking place more than a century after the first season and that things have drastically changed since we last saw them.
The second season’s plot takes place more than 100 years after the first season, with tensions increasing everywhere in the galaxy. Brother Dawn, Brother Day and Brother Dusk of The Cleons have begun to part ways, especially after they find out that they are not exactly like their maker. Moreover, they must learn to accept and be happy with the new vengeful queen who wants to destroy the Empire.
But that’s not it, as Hari, Salvor, and Gaal come across a new colony of Mentalics. This colony has special powers and the ability to change the psychohistory.
Furthermore, with all these events taking place, The Foundation must step up, spread the Church of Seldon as much as they can throughout the Outer Reach and, as a result, start the Second Crisis and war with the Empire.
