New stars confirmed for second season of Isaac Asimov Apple Original Sci-Fi show Foundation

First scene from Foundation S2 stars Jared Harris

Apple TV+ has offered a first look at the second season of the Apple Original, Foundation, and confirmed a slew of new cast members, who will star alongside Emmy Award nominees Jared Harris and Lee Pace.

Based on Isaac Asimov’s award-winning stories, Foundation chronicles the stories of four crucial individuals transcending space and time as they overcome deadly crises, shifting loyalties and complicated relationships that will ultimately determine the fate of humanity. 

David S. Goyer is the showrunner. “People have been trying to make Foundation for over 50 years,” said Goyer. “It was an enormous influence for Star Wars. The scope is sprawling. It unfolds over the course of a thousand years.”

The drama also stars Laura Birn, Terrence Mann and Cassian Bilton.

New stars joining the cast of Foundation for Season Two include:

Isabella Laughland as Brother Constant, a cheerfully confident cleric whose job is to evangelise the Church of the Galactic Spirit across the Outer Reach. Constant is a true believer, whose courage and passion make her hard not to love.

Kulvinder Ghir as Poly Verisof, High Cleric of the Church of the Galactic Spirit. Whip-smart and sardonic, he’s also a terrible drunk — intelligent enough to see the path he’s on, but too cynical to change.

Sandra Yi Sencindiver as Enjoiner Rue, the beautiful, politically savvy consigliere to Queen Sareth. A former courtesan to Cleon the 16th, Rue parlayed her status to become a royal counsellor.

Ella-Rae Smith as Queen Sareth of Cloud Dominion. Used to being underestimated, Sareth employs it to her advantage, charming her way into the Imperial Palace with biting wit, all while on a secret quest for revenge.  

Dimitri Leonidas as Hober Mallow, a master trader with a sarcastic personality and questionable morals, who is summoned against his will to serve a higher, selfless cause.

Ben Daniels as Bel Roise, the last great general of the Superliminal Fleet and would-be conqueror of the Foundation. Bel is noble to a fault, but his fealty to the Galactic Empire is waning.

Holt McCallany as Warden Jaegger Fount, the current Warden of Terminus and guardian of its citizens against external threats. 

Mikael Persbrandt as The Warlord of Kalgan, a monster of a man, coiled with muscle and possessing powerful psychic abilities, and fueled by hate in his quest to take over the galaxy.

Rachel House as Tellem Bond, mysterious leader of the Mentallics. 

Nimrat Kaur as Yanna Seldon. 

There’s no news yet of a transmission date.
