For All Mankind is one of the finest sci-fi shows on TV right now. I’m a massive fan, and I’m pleased to report that Apple TV+ has renewed it for a fourth season! The news was revealed this weekend at Comic-Con during Apple’s panel. It was also revealed that production on Season 4 will start next month.
The press release reads: “Apple TV+ today announced a season four renewal for For All Mankind, the hit critically acclaimed space drama series from Golden Globe nominee and Emmy Award-winner Ronald D. Moore and Emmy Award nominees Ben Nedivi & Matt Wolpert. The series is set to begin production on the new season of the alternate reality series next month.”
The panel at Comic-Con featured series stars Joel Kinnaman, Shantel VanSanten, Jodi Balfour, Sonya Walger, Krys Marshall, Cynthy Wu, Casey Johnson, Coral Peña, Wrenn Schmidt, and Edi Gathegi, along with executive producers Moore, Nedivi, Wolpert, and Maril Davis.
“Described by critics as ‘one of the best shows currently on TV,’ For All Mankind explores what would have happened if the global space race had never ended. The series presents an aspirational world where NASA astronauts, engineers, and their families find themselves in the center of extraordinary events seen through the prism of an alternate historical timeline — a world in which the USSR beats the US to the moon.
“The propulsive third season of the alternate-reality series, which premiered to rave reviews on Friday, June 10th, takes viewers to a new decade, moving into the early ’90s with a high-octane race to a new planetary frontier: MARS. The Red Planet becomes the new front in the Space Race not only for the U.S. and the Soviet Union but also as an unexpected new entrant with a lot to prove and even more at stake. Our characters find themselves going head-to-head as their ambitions for Mars come into conflict and their loyalties are tested, creating a pressure cooker that builds to a climactic conclusion.”
