“Now, with the second season, our audience will be able to visit more of Asimov’s unforgettable characters and worlds, such as Hober Mallow, General Bel Rosie, and all the Outer Suns. I am ecstatic that a whole new generation of admirers is reading Asimov’s masterwork. With Foundation, we’re playing the long game, and I’m indebted to my partners at Apple and Skydance for entrusting me with this epic.
The second season began filming in Prague in April 2022, according to The Prague Reporter, and a first-look trailer for the season was eventually released to fans at the beginning of this year.
