One of the most anticipated Apple Originals, Foundation, is set for a comeback soon – Apple shared its new cast and first look at this spatial saga based on Isaac Asimov’s books.

Apple TV+ Foundation is an epic saga from storyteller David S. Goyer and produced for Apple by Skydance Television. In the first image shared of the second season, you can see Demerzel, Harry Seldon, and the emperor together. As of now, it’s unclear whether this is a flashback or if the producers of the show are planning for an even more different path from the books.

Foundation 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.

Apple also shared new stars joining the cast of Foundation for season two:

  • Isabella Laughland as Brother Constant, a cheerfully confident claric whose job is to evangelize the Church of the Galactic Spirit across the Outer Reach. Constant is a true believer, whose courage and passion make her hard not to love.
  • Kulvinder Ghir as Poly Verisof, High Claric of the Church of the Galactic Spirit. Whip-smart and sardonic, he’s also a terrible drunk — intelligent enough to see the path he’s on, but too cynical to change.
  • Sandra Yi Sencindiver as Enjoiner Rue, the beautiful, politically savvy consigliere to Queen Sareth. A former courtesan to Cleon the 16th, Rue parlayed her status to become a royal counsellor.
  • Ella-Rae Smith as Queen Sareth of Cloud Dominion. Used to being underestimated, Sareth employs it to her advantage, charming her way into the Imperial Palace with biting wit, all while on a secret quest for revenge.
  • Dimitri Leonidas as Hober Mallow, a master trader with a sarcastic personality and questionable morals, who is summoned against his will to serve a higher, selfless cause.
  • Ben Daniels as Bel Roise, the last great general of the Superliminal Fleet and would-be conqueror of the Foundation. Bel is noble to a fault, but his fealty to the Galactic Empire is waning.
  • Holt McCallany as Warden Jaegger Fount, the current Warden of Terminus and guardian of its citizens against external threats.
  • Mikael Persbrandt as The Warlord of Kalgan, a monster of a man, coiled with muscle and possessing powerful psychic abilities, and fueled by hate in his quest to take over the galaxy.
  • Rachel House as Tellem Bond, mysterious leader of the Mentallics.
  • Nimrat Kaur as Yanna Seldon.

As of now, Apple says that season 2 of Foundation is “coming soon,” even though I don’t think we’ll see a new episode until later this fall.
