This article about Season 1 of the series For All Mankind was originally published on June 3, 2019 and updated on May 16, 2021 following the release of the season on Apple TV+. Read on for the original article, with some new changes to reflect the latest updates on this topic.
Yes! Apple renewed the drama for a second season before the first even premiered back in October 2019. The 10-episode Season 2 premiered in February 2021. The series has also been renewed for Season 3.
So I logged in to cancel my Apple TV subscription, having not watched anything on it since finishing season 1 of For All Mankind late last year. There I discovered that season 2 was now out! And I also remembered that I had never reviewed season 1, so here we are. A new blog post and a still-not-cancelled Apple TV subscription. (At least not until I'm done with season 2.)
For All Mankind Time Capsule features a total of four characters: the aforementioned Danny, his dad Gordo (Dorman) who leaves Danny voice messages, fellow astronaut Danielle Poole (Krys Marshall) who serves as the narrator, and new entrant to season 2 in Kelly Baldwin (Cynthy Wu), the adopted daughter of Ed (Joel Kinnaman) and Karen Baldwin (Shantel VanSanten) who's Danny's new best friend.
And while Apple handled the bulk of the work, given this is an app first, Moore noted that the For All Mankind creative team was heavily involved with For All Mankind Time Capsule. That included writer Stephanie Shannon (For All Mankind season 1 episode 6, and the upcoming season 2 episode 3), who worked on the stories involving Danny, and had to ensure that anything that happened on For All Mankind season 2 wouldn't be contradicted by For All Mankind Time Capsule. It also involved production designers and researchers who contributed to how this alternate world functions.

Posts: 171From: Port Orchard, WA USARegistered: Jul 2020posted 06-05-2021 12:44 AM I purchased an individual Season 1 patch on eBay, not realizing the entire set was available. Thank you for the heads up. I just bought Season 1. Now, I plan to binge watch both seasons soon.
Season two was being put together just around the time the new Space Force was just announced. I was wondering if that played into some of the NASA vs DoD tensions in season two, and is there an allegory or warning about the militarization of space
You already had a number of Trek (and Battlestar) vets on For All Mankind, like Maril Davis, David Weddle, and Bradley Thompson. And for season two you brought in Joe Menosky. First, had he already left The Orville, or did you nab him from your old friend Bannon [Braga] And what was it like working with Joe again, who is of course an amazing writer of some classic Star Trek.
The post-credits ending of season one showed a dramatic Sea Dragon launch, which I learned was a real proposed thing. Are you using space consultants to help with these things, or is this stuff you and your staff heard of back in the day and can now make real on the show
You use some tricks to incorporate historical characters in the show, like in season one you had Nixon but mostly with audio. In season two you had video with Reagan and others using some archival footage but also stuff that is faked. Can you talk about how you brought that to life
They recently announced season three, so are you jumping forward another decade As For All Mankind moves forward in time, are there concerns about diverging too far where it may no longer feel real
For All Mankind season two moves the show forward a decade later to 1983 and the height of the Cold War, with the US and Soviets going head-to-head to control sites rich in resources on the moon. The 10-episode second season will debut globally with the first episode on Friday, February 19, 2021, followed by one new episode weekly, every Friday, exclusively on Apple TV+.
As previously stated, now is the time to watch For All Mankind. The show is approaching the release of its third season, which is sure to be one of the best TV series coming to Apple TV+ this June. There are not a lot of episodes to catch up on, and you also have something to get excited about for the release on June 10th. Again, this is not the most popular show on Apple TV+, but that doesn't mean it isn't good. In fact, For All Mankind has done very well with critics, and fans of the show love it. Bonus, if you are the first among your friends to watch the show, then you get to be the cool friend with the great show recommendations.
Also, let's be realistic, it's summer, the time when everyone has a bit too much time on their hands and all network shows seem to take a break. Thus, it's the perfect time to dig deep into your streaming library and watch a bunch of new shows. So once you're done bingeing season four of Stranger Things, pull up For All Mankind and expand your horizons, literally.

Apple today shared the official trailer for the upcoming third season of alt-reality For All Mankind. Season three picks up ten years further on in the story, with NASA aiming to occupy the surface of Mars.
For All Mankind is based on the premise that Russia, not America, reached the moon first in 1969. This inspires much more investment into the US space program than what happened in real life, meaning that the state of technology advances significantly in the alternate timeline laid out by the show. For instance, in the first season, NASA and the Soviets set up permanent bases on the surface of the Moon. 59ce067264
