David S. Goyer’s Apple TV+ series Foundation is a sci-fi story based on the novels by Isaac Asimov. Foundation tells the story of a Galactic Empire as big as the Milky Way, which is on the verge of collapse. In order to battle that, a rogue scientist devises a way to preserve the knowledge of humanity’s collective wisdom by creating “foundations” so that he can save humanity from its destruction. Foundation has greatly benefitted from the marvelous cast of the series which is headlined by Jared Harris and Lee Pace. While the series still hasn’t made a big name for itself because it is an Apple TV+ series, which is fairly new in the streaming world. But Foundation still has a chance to reach the same heights as Game of Thrones and Raised By Wolves, as the streamer has renewed it for a second season. So, if you are also a fan of the series here are some shows you could watch while waiting for Foundation Season 2.

Synopsis: Have you ever questioned the nature of your reality? In this dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin, a malfunction creates havoc and terror for vacationers at a futuristic adult-themed amusement park for forbidden fantasies. Oscar winner Anthony Hopkins (The Silence of the Lambs, Amistad, Nixon) plays Dr. Robert Ford, the brilliant, taciturn and complex creative director, chief programmer and chairman of the board of Westworld, who has an uncompromising creative vision — and unorthodox methods of achieving it. Four-time Oscar nominee Ed Harris (Apollo 13, A Beautiful Mind) portrays The Man in Black, the distillation of pure villainy into one man. And Emmy Award winner Evan Rachel Wood (The Wrestler, True Blood) appears as Dolores Abernathy, the quintessential Western farm girl, who is about to discover that her entire idyllic existence is an elaborately constructed lie. Westworld is inspired by the film of the same name written and directed by Michael Crichton.
