Apple TV+ has released the official trailer for For all mankind season 2, the alternate history drama series from Emmy winner Ronald D. Moore (Battlestar Galactica). Set in an alternate history timeline where the global space race never ended, the series kicked off with the hypothetical: what if the Soviet Union beat the United States to the moon? Well, apparently that translates to a space battle on the moon a decade later, which we’ll see unfold in For all mankind season 2.
Space guns! The threat of the devastating Soviet Unions! The Cold War is pretty heated in this alternate timeline in For all mankindwhich somehow became more action-packed and sci-fi than the first season would have you believe.
Here is the synopsis of For all mankind season 2:
The space drama’s second season 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 greatest ambitions in science and space exploration risk being wasted as the United States and the Soviets clash over control of resource-rich sites on the moon. The Department of Defense has moved to mission control, and the militarization of NASA becomes central to the stories of several characters: some fight it, others 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.
Joel Kinnaman comes back with some more gray hair For all mankind season 2, alongside Michael Dorman, Sarah Jones, Shantel VanSanten, Wrenn Schmidt, Jodi Balfour, Krys Marshall and Sonya Walger. Newcomers to the season include Cynthy Wu, Coral Pena and Casey W. Johnson.
The first episode of the 10-episode second season of For all mankind will make its worldwide debut on Apple TV+ on Friday, February 19, 2021followed by a new weekly episode, every Friday.
For All Mankind is created by Emmy® Award winner Ronald D. Moore (Outlander, Battlestar Galactica), Matt Wolpert and Ben Nedivi. Told through the lives of NASA astronauts, engineers, and their families, For All Mankind presents an ambitious world where NASA and the space program have remained a priority and a focal point of our hopes and dreams.
