When Did ‘For All Mankind’ Renewed for Season 4?
For All Mankind is an American science-fiction drama television series made for Apple TV+ by Ronald D. Moore, Matt Wolpert, and Ben Nedivi. The series depicts “what would have happened if the global space race had never ended” after the Soviet Union achieves the first crewed Moon landing ahead of the United States. The title is based on the Apollo 11 crew’s lunar plaque, which reads in part, “We Came in Peace for All Mankind.”
For All Mankind imagines a world in which Russia beats America to the moon. Thankfully, we don’t have to picture a world in which For All Mankind ended with season three, because Apple TV+ announced the show’s return before the current season had even ended.
The renewal was announced at the end of July during the San Diego Comic-Con. Because of this early confirmation, new episodes should arrive a little sooner than usual. But what actually will happen? Season three took us through the 1990s with a new goal, Mars, so what awaits us in the twenty-first century?
For All Mankind Season 4 Release Date
When Apple TV+ announced the renewal of season four at San Diego Comic-Con, they also disclosed that production on the upcoming season would begin in August 2022. If everything goes according to plan, new episodes could premiere in the winter of 2023.
If everything goes according to plan, For All Mankind could return even sooner; however, if previous release dates are any indication, this is the timeframe we currently anticipate.
Those who have been following “For All Mankind” know that Season 3 ended in tragedy, with the NASA headquarters being the target of a terrorist attack that killed numerous important characters. Rather than delving into the immediate aftermath of these events, “For All Mankind” will follow precedent and move ahead in time, as it has done for each successive season.
Season 4 will shift the plot to the 2000s, more than 30 years after the show’s debut, while retaining the realistic space action of prior installments. “I feel like each season, we’ve gone from a show that felt more like a period piece into one that’s truly experiencing more and more science fiction,” executive producer Ben Nedivi told TV Insider. “Being able to do that and make these lovely actors make [sic] old and wrinkly has been our dream.”
Margo’s association with the Russian government, to whom the character sells information, will be explored further in the episode. Wrenn Schmidt, the actor, predicts a tough time in Moscow. “I think if Season 3 was Margo walking on thin ice, I feel like the ice is now cracking and breaking down,” Schmidt told ScreenRant.
Where to Watch the Past Seasons of ‘For All Mankind’?
It’s still not too late for anyone who would like to catch up on the series before the start of its fourth season, even if “For All Mankind” has gone a long way since it originally debuted in 2019. The first three seasons, totaling 30 episodes, are available to view on the company’s top streaming service since it is an Apple TV+ original series. A monthly subscription to Apple TV+, which is presently $4.99, is required in order to view the series.
