In late June, Apple showcased the initial episode of ‘Silo’ on Twitter as a marketing strategy for the show’s first season finale. Now, a similar approach is being used for another of its flagship sci-fi series. From Monday, the inaugural episode of ‘Foundation’ will be available to watch on YouTube, a move timed to generate buzz before the second season, which debuts on July 14th.
The live-action adaptation of ‘Foundation’, based on the iconic novels by Issac Asimov, was initially launched in 2021 after overcoming delays related to the pandemic. As per a 9to5Mac report, the first episode is already free to stream on Apple TV. However, this necessitates access to the app, and not everyone may be interested in installing Apple’s streaming service on their smart TV. The upcoming second season of ‘Foundation’ will see a return of key cast members from the first season, including Lee Pace and Jared Harris. There’s also a buzz that filming for the third season is already in progress. The first episode will be aired on Monday at 2PM ET and will be followed by a live Q&A session with the showrunner, David Goyer.
