The rules of engagement are changed for the second season by Ronald D. Moores all-history space race series: because war comes to the moon. Maybe lunar piratesalso?
Apple just pulled a new trailer for second season of For all mankind, the alternative story-sci-fi series that imagines a world where the space race did not end with nations in the world orbiting astronauts and the moon. Instead, tensions continue to escalate between the United States and Russia as the Cold War simmers, bringing the potential for conflict to NASA’s mission to put humanity in the stars.
What this means for our heroic astronauts is that now, together with the journey of wanting to go out and be ahead of the space race, they must fight against the increasingly real prospect of conflict on the moon. NASA must investigate reports that the Soviet Union has stationed a military outpost on the moon that may be able to launch nuclear missiles at any target on Earth. Which would be bad, naturally enough!
For all mankind returns to Apple TV + February 19th.
