It has been reported at techradar that Apple’s streaming service, Apple+, is aiming to start airing their adaptation of Asimov’s Foundation this coming autumn. This initial series is set to have ten episodes but it could be possible that Apple+ is aiming for a total of eighty episodes.
If Apple+ is indeed aiming for eighty episodes and each series comprises one of Asimov’s Foundation books this will cover all seven of the books Asimov wrote plus an extra series consisting of what? I’m inclined to think it will also include elements of Asimov’s Robot series, but that is pure speculation at this point.
There hasn’t been anything to tempt me to subscribe to Apple’s streaming service but I will be signing up for this series alone. I hope they are able to bring Asimov’s vision to life without too many grievous alterations.
