For All Mankind

Ahead of its series premiere on Apple TV+ next month, Ronald D. Moore’s space-race drama “For All Mankind” has been renewed for a second season, a spokesperson for the streaming service told TheWrap Tuesday.

Starring Joel Kinnaman, the series is set in a world where the global space race never ended. According to Apple the “what if” plot “spotlights the lives of NASA astronauts — the heroes and rock stars of their time — and their families.”

Along with Kinnaman (“Suicide Squad,” “Altered Carbon”), the series stars Michael Dorman (“Patriot,” “Wonderland”), Sarah Jones (“Damnation,” “The Path,” “Sons of Anarchy”), Shantel VanSanten (“The Boys,” “The Flash,” “One Tree Hill”), Wrenn Schmidt (“The Looming Tower,” “Outcast”) and Jodi Balfour (“The Crown,” “Bomb Girls”).

“For All Mankind” will be available when Apple TV+ launches Nov. 1. The service is priced at $4.99 per month and will be free for one year when you buy a new iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, Mac or iPod Touch. The platform will offer a seven-day free trial when it debuts.

Other Apple TV+ shows available at launch include Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston’s drama “The Morning Show,” the Hailee Steinfeld-led comedy “Dickinson,” the Jason Momoa sci-fi series “See,” Sesame Workshop’s “Helpsters,” the Peanuts cartoon “Snoopy in Space,” a “reinvention” of the ’90s children’s mystery series “Ghostwriter” and the documentary film “Elephant Queen.” Oprah Winfrey’s book club will also be featured on the platform.

“For All Mankind” premieres Nov. 1 on Apple TV+.
