Plot Synopsis

Created and written by Ronald D. Moore, FOR ALL MANKIND is a drama series that imagines what would have happened if the global space race never ended and the space program remained the cultural centerpiece of America's hopes and dreams. This series spotlights the lives of NASA astronauts -- the heroes and rock stars of their time -- and their families. The first three episodes of FOR ALL MANKIND premiered on Friday, November 1, 2019 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, as Apple TV+ released the series on the same day the streaming network launched.

FOR ALL MANKIND returned for its second season on Friday, February 19, 2021, as Apple TV+ released the first episode of the 10-episode new season. A new episode debuts each Friday through April 23. Season 2 picks up a decade later in 1983. It's the height of the Cold War and tensions between the United States and the USSR are at their peak. Ronald Reagan is President and the greater ambitions of science and space exploration are at threat of being squandered as the US and Soviets go head to head to control sites rich in resources on the moon. The Department of Defense has moved into Mission Control, and the militarization of NASA becomes central to several characters' stories: some fight it, some use it as an opportunity to advance their own interests, and some find themselves at the height of a conflict that may lead to nuclear war.

Season 3 of FOR ALL MANKIND debuted on Friday, June 10, 2022, as Apple TV+ released the first episode of the new season. A new episode drops each Friday through August 12. The new season takes viewers to a new decade, moving into the early '90s with a high-octane race to a new planetary frontier: Mars. The Red Planet becomes the new front in the space race not only for the US and the Soviet Union, but also an unexpected new entrant with a lot to prove and even more at stake. Our characters find themselves going head-to-head as their ambitions for Mars come into conflict and their loyalties are tested, creating a pressure cooker that builds to a climactic conclusion.

The 10-episode fourth season of FOR ALL MANKIND debuted on Friday, November 10, 2023 on Apple TV+, which released the first episode of the new season. A new installment drops weekly on Fridays through January 12, 2024. Rocketing into the new millennium in the eight years since Season 3, Happy Valley has rapidly expanded its footprint on Mars by turning former foes into partners. Now 2003, the focus of the space program has turned to the capture and mining of extremely valuable, mineral-rich asteroids that could change the future of both Earth and Mars. But simmering tensions between the residents of the now-sprawling international base threaten to undo everything they are working towards.
On Friday, January 12, 2024, Apple TV+ released "Perestroika," the Season 4 finale of FOR ALL MANKIND, as tensions on Earth and Mars come to a head.
