The upcoming American science fiction drama series named Foundation is all set to hit the screens via Apple TV+ in 2021.

The show is based on the science fiction novel series of the same name by Isaac Asimov. Josh Friedman and David S. Goyer are the producers of the show for Apple Tv+. The audience is genuinely looking forward to this sci-fi action not just for the goodwill of the novel’s author but also David Goyer who has previously been a screenwriter for Blade II, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Terminator: Dark Fate, and a reboot of the Mattel toy franchise, Masters of the Universe.

The show will be produced by Skydance Media which has previously produced super hit science fiction movies such as Star Trek Into Darkness (2013), World War Z (2013)

The production of the show had to face long-term halts due to the ongoing global Corona Virus Pandemic situation. The production of the show had begun in early 2020 but came to halt in the month of March due to the pandemic. But now the show’s production is growing at a steady pace.
