Apple TV + has released the official trailer for the second season of “For All Mankind,” the drama series by Golden Globe nominee and Emmy Award winner Ronald D. Moore. The first episode of the second season with ten episodes will be released worldwide on Friday, February 19, 2021, followed by a new episode every Friday, exclusively on Apple TV +.
For All Mankind examines what would have happened if the global space race had never ended. The series presents an ambitious world where NASA astronauts, engineers and their families are at the center of extraordinary events, seen through the lens of an alternate history timeline, the press release said.
A decade later
The second season of the space drama begins a decade later in 1983. It is the height of the Cold War and tensions between the United States and the USSR are at their height. Ronald Reagan is president and the greatest ambitions of science and space exploration are in danger of being wasted as the United States and the Soviets clash in the battle for resources on the moon. The Department of Defense has shifted to mission control, and the militarization of NASA is central to the stories of various characters. Some are leading the race they have followed, others are using it as an opportunity to promote their own interests, and some are at the height of a conflict that could lead to nuclear war.
