Apple TV+’s science fiction drama series “For All Mankind” has been renewed for Season 4. The series was created and written by Ronald D. Moore, Matt Wolpert and Ben Nedivi and produced for Apple TV+. The announcement was made Friday as part of the show’s panel at San Diego Comic-Con. Season 3 of the series was released on the streamer on June 10.
In its third season, the show shifted into the early 1990s with a race to Mars, a brand-new planetary frontier. The Red Planet becomes the new battleground in the Space Race, not just for the United States and the Soviet Union, but also for a surprising new entrant with a lot on the line. As their goals for Mars clash and their allegiances are put to the test, the protagonists find themselves in a pressure cooker that intensifies to a climactic finish.
The new season examines how the US and the USSR turned their attention to Mars. It is set in a modified 1990s. Both countries believe that sending people to Mars will result in a clear triumph in the race for space. However, since the private sector also wants to explore Mars without being constrained by the political game, things become more challenging. The three expeditions set off in unison towards Mars, but each crew encountered difficulties on the way there. We are even more eager to see what will happen now that Apple TV+ has renewed the show for another season.
Every new season of For All Mankind takes us to a different historical time. The first season delivers us to the 1970s where we learn about the enormous political and cultural effects of a pioneering Soviet Moon mission. The second season fast-forwarded by almost a decade, demonstrating how the human race’s technological advancement was fueled by the spatial race and placed science at its core. It would be reasonable to anticipate another decade hop for Season 4 given that Season 3 takes us to the 1990s.
Along with executive producers Moore, Nedivi, Wolpert, and Maril Davis, the cast also includes Joel Kinnaman, Shantel VanSanten, Jodi Balfour, Sonya Walger, Krys Marshall, Cynthy Wu, Casey Johnson, Coral Pea, Wrenn Schmidt, and Edi Gathegi.
