A couple of months ahead of the show’s Season 2 premiere on Feb. 19, Apple has renewed “For All Mankind” for Season 3, Variety is reporting. The Apple TV+ original explores what would have happened if the global space race had never ended.
The series stars Joel Kinnaman, Michael Dorman, Sarah Jones, Shantel VanSanten, Wrenn Schmidt, Jodi Balfour, Krys Marshall, and Sonya Walger. Its second season picks up a decade after Season 1 in 1983 at the height of the Cold War, when tensions between the United States and the USSR are at their peak.
Ronald Reagan is President, and the greatest ambitions of science and space exploration are at threat of being squandered as the US and Soviets go head to head to control sites rich in resources on the moon.
“For All Mankind” is created by Ronald D. Moore, Ben Nedivi, Matt Wolpert. Moore, Nedivi, and Wolpert executive produce alongside Maril Davis of Tall Ship Productions.
