Not too impressed with the books but would be interested in how this plays out.

Apple TV+ has set a September 24, 2021 premiere date for the release of Foundation's first two episodes. New episodes of the 10 episode season will arrive on subsequent Fridays.

SYNOPSIS:

When revolutionary Dr. Hari Seldon predicts the impending fall of the Empire, he and a band of loyal followers venture to the far reaches of the galaxy to establish The Foundation in an attempt to rebuild and preserve the future of civilization. Enraged by Hari’s claims, the ruling Cleons — a long line of emperor clones — fear their unrivaled reign may be weakening as they’re forced to reckon with the potential reality of losing their powerful legacy forever.

Featuring an international cast led by Emmy Award nominees Jared Harris and Lee Pace, alongside rising stars Lou Llobell and Leah Harvey, the monumental adaptation chronicles the stories of four crucial individuals transcending space and time as they overcome deadly crises, shifting loyalties, and complicated relationships that will ultimately determine the fate of humanity.

After Hollywood f'd up "I, Robot" (they chose to "get jiggy with it") I really hope they make amends and turn this into an epic series.

This one's a slow burn.  It isn't for non-fans of sci-fi either.  The subdued drama and limited action sequences won't make for good space opera fare, for sure. 

If you liked Star Trek more than Star Wars and Battlestar Galactica, then this series could work for you.

I think it's good but, being an Asimov fan, I am definitely biased.

I liked the first season. I think it improves on the books.
