Apple Shares 'For All Mankind' Season 2 Featurette

Apple today shared a "first look featurette" video highlighting the second season of popular Apple TV+ series "For All Mankind," which is set to have new episodes premiere on Friday, February 19.


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 U.S. priority.

The second season of "For All Mankind" picks up in 1983, a decade after the first season. At the height of the Cold War, tensions between the United States and USSR are at their peak. Reagan is president and the US and USSR are fighting over the resources available on the moon.

Season two of the space drama picks up a decade later in 1983. It's the height of the Cold War and tensions between the United States and the USSR are at their peak. Ronald Reagan is president and the greater 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. The Department of Defense has moved into Mission Control, and the militarization of NASA becomes central to several characters' stories: some fight it, some use it as an opportunity to advance their own interests, and some find themselves at the height of a conflict that may lead to nuclear war.

"For All Mankind" stars Joel Kinnaman, Michael Dorman, Wrenn Schmidt, Shantel VanSanten, Sarah Jones, and Jodi Balfour.

This show was a hugely pleasant surprise for me. Some of the science seems a little iffy, but overall it seems fairly realistic and makes you wonder what could have been.

Does anyone actually watch any of the Apple TV shows? They are all ruined by such blatant virtue signalling.

How much better would this concept have been for the show?

- Soviets get to the Moon faster.
- To one up them the USA sets the goal to get to Mars first.
- Alternate history of an incredible challenge getting to Mars in the 70s.
- Commander and at least one more crew just happens to be a woman because why not. Come up with a reason (Arrival/Contact are great examples).

True to current events. Still includes social impact aspect creating role models. Story would be actually interesting. Sci fi would have a field day with all the tech and challenges.

All of Apple TV seems so tainted by some corporate board laying down specific virtues and saying make a show about that first and foremost and make it interesting second. I can't imagine how frustrating it must be being a creator working on Apple TV right now. I don't even bother turning it on anymore.

'Global warming the show'
'#metoo the show'
'Women in STEM the show'

It's so one dimensional. Interested in everyone else's thoughts.

I’m really looking forward to Season 2 as well! The show had a slow start but I like the direction things are headed now as it transitions even deeper into science fiction.
