Foundation Showrunner David S. Goyer Talks Bringing Asimov’s Novels To Life

After writing some of the best stories and scripts in Hollywood (The Dark Knight Trilogy, Man of Steel, Blade or the upcoming Sandman series) screenwriter, producer, and director David S. Goyer took on one of the most famous and complicated Sci-Fi stories for Apple TV+. The splendid series Foundation, based on Isaac Asimov’s novels (written in the 1940s and considered to be the beginning of Science-Fiction) is out this Friday, September 24th on the streaming platform. 

The series follows the journey of a group of characters in exile, whose goal is to save the civilization, after psychohistorian Hari Seldon, predicted that humanity was doomed to a tragic fate after the breakdown of the Empire.

When asked if the vision he had for the TV show was respected, the showrunner said:

It’s pretty close! I mean there are always little things that you wish ‘Oh I wish I could go back and change that’, but I would say more or less, the show that we’re birthing, that we’re bringing to the world, is pretty much what I had in mind from the very beginning.”

If the TV show follows the same path as the novels it is based on, Foundation should stay on our screens for many years, and we should be able to enjoy at least 8 seasons of this incredible space odyssey.

David S. Goyer stated the following: 

’I had to present an eight-seasons plan to Apple, they wanted to know that I knew where I was going. (…) I hope we arrive to this destination. I’m excited about it.’’
