Fans of Foundation already understand the complex and intricate storyline, however its plot may be too confusing for new viewers to understand.
Lee Pace, who plays the lead role of Brother Day in the series, explained the main concept of the show.

Alfred Enoch, who plays Raych Foss in the series, elaborated on just how expansive the magnitude of the show's plot gets as each episode progresses.
"It's an epic story on a huge scale, and I think we always have appetite for, for that kind of kind of scope of storytelling things which deal with issues of, of what we do as a race and how we engage with each other and the world we live on and by extension of the universe. You know, I think these are things which are always, that's never going to go out of fashion," Enoch said.
Leah Harvey, who stars as Salvor Hardin in the show, further elaborated on the complexity of its plot.
"There's loads of different parts of this show and, you know, I think that like, that's really, that's the unique thing about it, is that it's so vast. Ultimately it's about people and how they relate to each other," Harvey said.
