What do you expect from the Foundation TV series
With so many stories to learn from, Apple can choose to develop the Foundation TV series in multiple directions.So far, the synopsis and trailer indicate that the series mainly adhere to the main storyline of the original story collected Base Trilogy.
The series may not cover the events of all three novels in the first season of its 10 episodes, unless it cuts down a large number of stories.
It is reasonable to assume that the first season covers the first book, and future seasons will cover later stories. (Assume that Foundation is a big enough success to guarantee more.)
Aesthetically speaking, we can already tell from the trailer that this is a gorgeous performance, with stunning visuals, beautiful costumes and makeup, and a jaw-dropping location.
We just want it to look as good as it looks.
