'For All Mankind' Season 2 Filming Again Underway

Filming resumed today on the second season of "For All Mankind," despite the ongoing pandemic, reports Deadline.


When filming was halted in mid-March on almost all TV shows and movies, the cast of "For All Mankind" had two episodes left to shoot from the season two order.

"For All Mankind" was one of the Apple TV+ debut shows that launched last November, and with filming underway, it could be one of the first shows to have a second season premiere. Apple has renewed all of its launch shows for a second season, including "See," "Dickinson," and "The Morning Show."

The show is being filmed on the Sony lot in Culver City, as Sony Pictures TV has been working to return scripted series to production with safety precautions in place.

Created by Ronald D. Moore, "For All Mankind" is a sci-fi series that imagines what the world might have been like if the global space race had never ended and the space program had remained a priority. The story is told through the lives of NASA astronauts and engineers, along with their families.

The show stars Joel Kinnaman, Michael Dorman, Wrenn Schmidt, Shantel VanSanten, Sarah Jones, and Jodi Balfour.

Prompts the question... what will be the first actual scripted show done on the moon?

NASA has started awarding SpaceX money to deliver people and cargo to the moon by 2024 with Starship. It can carry 100 people and cargo to the surface for ~$15M, and they don't really need 100 people on set to make a show, so they could carry a lot fewer than that and sell the other seats to other people/organizations.

If For All Mankind or Space Force lasts long enough, it seems plausible that they could have a 7th season where an episode is actually shot on the moon. The moon is a kind of mundane place for other [S]sci-fi[/S] space* shows like Star Trek, Orville, or The Expanse to take place.

*Can't call them sci-fi anymore if they could realistically happen.
