Apple TV+ renews For All Mankind for Season 4
James R | On 23, Jul 2022
Apple TV+ has given a Season 4 renewal to For All Mankind, its hit space race drama.
From Ronald D Moore, Ben Nedivi and Matt Wolpert, the alt-history series 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 a different but pertinent timeline – a world in which the USSR beats the US to the moon.
Season 3 arrived last month and took a giant leap forward into the the 90s, where a new planetary frontier has sparked another space race: Mars. The characters find themselves going head-to-head as their ambitions for the Red Planet come into conflict and their loyalties are tested, creating a pressure cooker that builds to a climactic conclusion.
“Expansive, emotional, ambitious and thrilling, Season 3 cements For All Mankind as one of the best shows on TV,” we wrote in our review.
Now, ahead of the finale on 12th August, Apple TV+ has announced that the show will once again return for a new season. The news was confirmed during the show’s panel at San Diego Comic-Con, featuring 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.
Season 4 joins other Apple originals that have been recently renewed, including Loot, Schmigadoon!, Severance, Pachinko, The Afterparty and Slow Horses.
Production will begin on Season 4 next month.
