If you are a huge science fiction fan, then the very first thing that the Foundation would remind you of will be the name of the novel written by Isaac Asimov. Well, you are not far from the truth. The series that Apple TV+ has produced and created by David S. Goyer and Josh Friedman is based on the story.
However, they have not blatantly copied from the series of stories and collections but just took inspiration from it. The collections were written back in the 50s. The series was first released in 2021, and after the amazing success of Season 1, they are all set to go for Foundation Season 2.
Season 1 had been nominated and received quite a number of awards and accolades. It was even critically acclaimed by quite a few people. No wonder the series kept on getting tons of positive reviews and ratings.
Even though the makers had gone for quite a classic and old concept in the science fiction genre, there seems to be absolutely no backlash for it. In fact, it would be safe to say that the viewers enjoyed the whole concept. This was solely because the producers and directors managed to appropriate the story to our times and also made sure that it still had the same flavor.
Foundation Season 2 Release Date
We will not be beating around the bush much and get straight to the point. There has been some news about the production work of Season 2 just starting.
Well, as the series takes quite some time with all of the production work, and then the filming sequences, hence we regret to inform you that there is a high chance that Season 2 might not be available till 2023. Hence, we can expect the next Season to be released in the early months of 2023. Therefore, you have to wait for some months before your favorite show comes back again.
However, there is one good thing for the fans. The principal photography has already started this year, and hence, that means all the work is going on extremely smoothly. If there is no more pandemic or any other difficulty for the production team, then there is no doubt that Season 2 will be released in 2023 or even in the very last few months of 2022. We would ask you to keep an eye on our website so that you can get the latest updates on the series. This will ensure that you get to know the latest release dates as soon as possible.
Foundation Season 1 Ending Explained
Well, if you are already caught up with Season 1, then there is a high chance that things might have left you on the edge of your seat. There is also a chance that you might not have understood what is going on in the series. However, after everything more important to note that is based on the Season 1 ending, we can try to understand what Foundation Season 2 will be all about. What might have shocked most of the Foundation fans is at the near end of the season finale, it was revealed that Salvor was Gaal’s daughter. Gaal herself was unaware of the fact and was taken aback when Salvor came to Synnax to give her this news.
Now, you might be wondering, isn’t Salvor Maria’s daughter? Well, technically, it is true. However, it was later on revealed that Maria did not conceive Salvor in a purely biological way. Salvor does not have even a single strand of Maria’s DNA in her genetics. Then what happened exactly? It is depicted that Maria had conceived by using Gaal and Raych’s DNA.
She had managed to fuse the DNA and then made herself pregnant with that. This made the situation a bit more complex, as Maria claims that though Salvor does not have her genes, she has still gone through bearing and rearing her. This should also make her Salvor’s mother.
Foundation Season 2 Plot
In the Ending section, we discussed the part which seemed to get a definite ending. The other subplots in the series seem to have a lot of unanswered questions left. There is no doubt that all the loose threads will start to reel in. Even the makers of the show have confirmed that they will be getting into the major questions that they had purposefully left unanswered in Season 1.
They want us to trust them as they have reasons for everything. Therefore, one of the major plots for Foundation Season 2 could be the issue with the identical clones of Cleo I. When the show started, it seemed that Cleon I’s clones were identical and were in a level of perfection that no one could achieve. However, as we came closer to the finale, it was exposed that the clones were not that perfect.
This on the other hand, brings in a lot of problems. There is a chance then that there might be a power vacuum, and power-hungry people might unleash demonic havoc. Now, you might refer to the book that the series is based on.
However, the makers wanted the readers to have a unique experience so that they might not get spoiled. In other words, though they have based the series on this book, they have gone off on their own on a lot of issues and parts. Nonetheless, it will be quite interesting to know how many there are things to see.
Foundation Season 2 Cast
After the epic Season 1 finale, no idea is going to make it to Season 2, Yet, the main character will be Hari Seldon, who is played by Jared Harris. Honestly, his role as a mathematician suited him brilliantly. Then there is Brother Day, or rather Cleon XII and XIII. These are the clones of Cleon, which were later found to have flaws. Next comes Gaal Dornick, played by Lou Llobell, Salvor Hardin, played by Leah Harvey, Eto Demerzel, played by Laura Birn, Brother Dusk, who is Cleon XI, and XII, which means the clones of Cleon and is played by Terrence Mann. Lastly, there is Brother Dawn, who is again Cleon XIV, played by Cassian Bilton.
Now they were only the main casts of the series. There is still a lot more to go. There are the recurring ones, and also some more guest stars who might make an appearance in Season. Well, we will not give out much information until the trailer of the season releases so that we have a more clear cut idea as to who is going to be there 100%. We do not want to build a false hype around the show, at least not until you have watched it.

All you can do is just sit and wait until they complete all their post-production work and get set to release it.
