Jared Harris (Mr. Deeds, Chernobyl) stars as Dr. Hari Seldon, while Lee Pace (Guardians of the Galaxy, The Hobbit) plays Brother Day. The series also stars Lou Llobell, Leah Harvey, Laura Birn, Terrence Mann, Cassian Bilton, and Alfred Enoch.

Foundation's showrunner is David Goyer, who previously wrote Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight movies and Call of Duty: Black Ops.

Foundation premieres September 24 on Apple TV+. It's just the latest big show coming to the service this year, following Ted Lasso Season 2 (July 23) and then The Morning Show Season 2 (July 17).
