Foundation landed on Apple TV on September 24, 2021 featuring two episodes, so when will episode 3 be and how many are in total?
Calling all sci-fi fans – oh, Apple TV Plus has a treat for you.
Initially a Sony project a decade ago, and HBO five years ago, Apple TV became the chosen one to bring Foundation to life, thanks to their huge budget.
Based on the Isaac Asimov series of books, Jared Harris portrays Hari Seldon as he establishes a group called the Foundation, to prevent the fall of the Galactic Empire through the development of psychohistory.
The first two episodes would have cost the same as a movie, the viewers called the show “eye candy,” but the storyline is questionable.
You can be the judge as you delve deeper into the series, so when will the next episode be released?
Foundation episode 3 release date and total number of episodes
Episode 3, titled The Mathematician’s Ghost, is scheduled to air on Apple TV Plus on Friday, October 1, 2021, which means the series will release weekly episodes on Friday.
Yahoo is reporting that Season 1 will have a total of 10 episodes, and if one of them drops each week, we can expect the finale to air on Friday, November 19, 2021.
More seasons could be on the way if it depends on creator David S. Goyer: he’s hoping Foundation’s long stories can be told over 80 episodes, which means if Season 1 is a success, seven more are possible.
How is Foundation different from books?
* Warning: spoilers to come *
In the first two episodes, actor Lee Pace, The Hobbit, portrayed Brother Day, one of Emperor Cleon’s clones, and it’s clearly one of the biggest changes from the original books. Cassian Bilton appears as Brother Dawn and Terrence Mann as Brother Dusk.
Episode 1 is based on “The Psychohistorians”, where Cléon does not appear. He appears in Foundation prequels but not as genetic clones of himself. There’s actually no concept of cloning in the books, but given the depth of the series, it makes sense to have different versions of himself to keep TV interesting.
Hari’s son Raych Seldon, played by Alfred Enoch, and Cleon’s assistant Eto Demerzel (Laura Birn) do not appear in “The Psychohistorians”; however, they are presented in the prequels. We predict that Goyer chose to include them in his adaptation to expand the cast of Foundation characters, as the original actually only features Hari and Lou Llobell’s character, Gaal Dornick, who also changed his gender for the series. .
Foundation episodes 1 and 2 are now available on Apple TV +.
