The wait for the Apple TV+ adaptation of Foundation is almost over. The same goes for The Problem With Jon Stewart. Apple’s streaming service announced the premiere dates for these shows and more, all coming this fall.

The free Apple TV+ trial offered when the service debuted runs out at the end of June, and the iPhone-maker is trying to build excitement for upcoming series by announcing their debut dates.

Coming this autumn to Apple TV+

Apple TV+’s ambitious version of Isaac Asimov’s Foundation series is one of its most-anticipated series, and it’s going to reach viewers in September. For some reason, the no exact date was given but it’ll almost certainly be on a Friday.

The original sci-fi novels were groundbreaking, influencing Star Wars and other series. They tell the story of a band of exiles struggling to save humanity after the fall of a Galactic Empire.

Also coming in September is The Problem With Jon Stewart. It’ll be the acclaimed comedian’s return to TV after 6 years. The show will be a one-hour, weekly series, with each episode exploring a single topic from the news. But an exact date for the debut wasn’t announced.

But before Apple TV+ introduces either of those shows will be the premiere of Mr. Corman starring Emmy winner Joseph Gordon-Levitt. This is a drama centered on an elementary school teacher. It’ll first be available to watch August 6.

Also on Apple’s announcements is The Shrink Next Door, a dark comedy starring Will Ferrell and Paul Rudd. It’ll launch November 12, but Apple already announced that.

And the same goes for CODA. The film about a child of deaf adults took home top honors at the 2021 Sundance film festival. Its debut date is August 13, something first revealed back in April. It’ll be on the Apple TV+ service and in theaters on the same day.

Watching any of these series or the film will require a $4.99 subscription to Apple’s streaming video service.
