Apple calls "Foundation" the "greatest science fiction work of all time," and it is ready to premiere on September 24. The ambitious Apple TV+ show seeks to bring the iconic Issac Asimov series to the screen for the first time.

The first look video shows snippets from other trailers and teasers tied to commentary from the show's writer David S. Goyer and actors Jared Harris, Leah Harvey, Lee Pace, and Lou Llobell.

"'Foundation' is the greatest science fiction work of all time, and it's never been brought to the screen before," says Goyer. "It took a while for the world to be ready for 'Foundation,' and that age has finally arrived."

Modern sci-fi epics have been inspired by "Foundation" like "Star Wars" and "Dune." The story takes place over a thousand years and has always been regarded as too complex to translate to the screen.





"Foundation" premieres on Apple TV+ on September 24. Add the show to your Up Next or check out the book before the show releases.

    Hey Apple, also take a look at some of Arthur C. Clark’s work, specifically 'Rendezvous with Rama’. It was rumored at one time that Morgan Freeman had bought the screen rights and was looking to produce it. That would be a good one to do.

    Indeed. The screenplay would be an interesting and difficult endeavour though. 2001 worked so very well without an alien in sight (still my favourite movie) but today aliens need to be up front and central apparently.
