Today, the highly-anticipated series Foundation premieres on Apple TV+. The series is based off the genre-defining sci-fi novels by writer Isaac Asimov and features Jared Harris as ‘Hari Seldon’ fighting against the Galactic Empire, led by Lee Pace as ‘Brother Dusk’.
Foundation is exclusively available on Apple TV+. You can sign up to Apple TV+ here and get a free seven day trial if you’ve never used the service before. Apple TV+ costs $4.99 per month or $49.99 a year. It is also available as part of the Apple One bundle, and a single TV+ subscription can be shared among up to six people via Family Sharing at no additional charge.
