Because of engineering maintenance work in the Adler tunnel between Basel and Olten, end May to end July 2022 there will be no TGV from France to Zurich. All TGV from the north will terminate at Basel

Overall, as well as no TGV, there are fewer trains running between Olten and Basel, and timings are slightly modified to and from Basel, but there are still plenty of trains (5 per hour) because the Adler tunnel is a new line that added extra capacity to the existing line, which remains open. Also, some of the slightly slower IR trains Zurich - Basel run via the alternative (and more scenic) Zurich - Basel railway via Baden, Stein Sackingen and Rheinfelden.
