Has Foundation been renewed for Season 3? Here’s what we know:

Renewed Or Cancelled?

Foundation is loosely adapted from the Isaac Isamov classic novel sporting the same name. And by “loosely adapted”, we mean the show basically takes a few names and a couple of pointers and goes in a completely different direction!

After finishing all 8 episodes, you may be wondering if this has been renewed or cancelled. Here’s what we know:


What is Foundation season 2 about?

The second season of Foundation is basically more of the same, set more than a century after the season 1 finale. Tension is mounting throughout the galaxy, and as the Cleons unravel, a vengeful queen plots to destroy Empire from within.

Hari, Gaal, and Salvor meanwhile, discover a colony of Mentalics with psionic abilities that threaten to alter psychohistory itself. The Foundation has entered its religious phase though, with a second crisis on the way, coming in the form of war with Empire.

As the season progresses, the fate of our main characters will ultimately determine the fate of humanity.


Has Foundation been renewed for season 3?

At the time of writing, AppleTV+ has not renewed Foundation for season 3. Given Apple’s track record for renewing a lot of its shows, it’s perhaps only a matter of time before they do announce this.

Generally Apple and other streamers gauge numerous metrics before renewing a show, including how many people initially watch it and then looking at the drop-off rate. With some shows, cancellations or renewals happen quickly (ala. Squid Game, Bridgerton & Shantaram) Other times, it can take months before a decision over a show’s future is made.

So far, Foundation has had a pretty mixed reaction from critics and audiences, with a lot commenting on the laborious pace and how drawn out this story has been.

Given the way the show is set up, we’re going out on a limb and predicting that this will be renewed for a third season. Why? Well, Apple seem to be renewing everything these days and when it comes to Foundation, there are a lot more book to loosely adapt in this series.

We’ll be sure to update this section with accurate details over the coming weeks and months when we know more!


What we know about season 3 so far:

Barely anything is known as season 3 at this point as Apple have not made a definitive decision over the show’s future just yet. However, it’s likely that this will be renewed and it’s a matter of time before we get confirmation of this.

Expect more drama to ensue, with the next set of Foundation books to be adapted.

If there are any significant updates, then we’ll be sure to update this section and let you all know!

  1. @Drake Then prepare to be disappointed. The author of this article is understating things when they claim that the show is “loosely” based on the books. That said, the showrunners/writers have made some inspired decisions, like making the Emperor be clones of Cleon and three different life stages that really hammers home the stagnation of the current empire.

    As an avid fan who has read the full series three times now, it was jarring to see that Gaal Dornick is now female and was the mother of Salvor Hardin (Raych is the father!), who is also now female and the “warden” instead of the mayor of Terminus. Oh, and Demerzel is also female. I recognize that Asimov didn’t really include many women in the Foundation series and

  2. It’s about time someone took on one of the most engaging book series from Isaac Asimov. I have been waiting for 50 years to see this epic portrayed on on the screen.
