Apple TV+ Releases ‘For All Mankind’ Season 2 Trailer
‘For All Mankind’ is a “what if” take on history from Golden Globe nominee and Emmy Award winner, Ronald D. Moore. Told through the lives of astronauts, engineers and their families, the series imagines a world in which the global space race never ended and the space program remained the cultural centrepiece of America’s hopes and dreams.
Season 1 followed the story of a group of US astronauts who watch in horror in 1969 as a Soviet cosmonaut becomes the first man on the moon. This single event propels the space race between the two superpowers in a widely different direction, as NASA rush to not only land, but be the first to get a base on the lunar surface.
Season 2 moves things forward to the 80s, and, as you can see in the trailer, the race between the Soviet Union and America is still very much ongoing, with President Ronald Regan proclaiming “we must maintain peace through strength for as long as necessary.” That’s then followed by scenes of US astronauts loading guns and heading out onto the surface of the moon… I’m sure that’ll end well!
Joel Kinnaman (‘The Killing’, ‘Altered Carbon’) returns to the cast as Edward Baldwin, alongside Michael Dorman (‘Patriot’) as Gordo Stevens, Sarah Jones (‘The Path’) as Tracy Stevens, Shantel VanSanten (‘Shooter’) as Karen Baldwin, Wrenn Schmidt (‘Outcast’) as Margo Madison, Jodi Balfour (‘Quarry’) as Ellen Wilson, Sonya Walger (‘Get Shorty’, ‘The Catch’) as Molly Cobb, and Krys Marshall (‘Supergirl’) as Danielle Poole.
