One more step ahead for the Apple TV Plus space drama
The third season of For All Mankind has just premiered with an action-packed trailer. After a stunning time jump, the Apple TV Plus space opera ended with a look at humanity’s successful mission to Mars.
What if the Russians had landed first, before the Americans? That was the intriguing concept of the first season of For All Mankind. This never-ending race to the moon was ratcheted up a notch by the two Cold War enemies.
Season 1 of For All Mankind moves at a breakneck speed, spanning the years 1969 to 1973. It’s 1983, and the Earth and the Moon are on the verge of annihilation in the Season 2 finale, which takes place in the year 1983. In 1995, the first astronauts stepped foot on the red planet.
A new president, new astronauts and new missions await as the show resumes its fast-forwarding sequence.
Everything we know about For All Mankind season 3 thus far is shown below.

The season 3 trailer for For All Mankind
In the U.S. vs. Soviet race to Mars, Dev Ayesa, a private entrepreneur, is introduced in the third season teaser of For All Mankind. He’s determined to get to Mars before the government’s efforts. No, not Elon Musk at all.
Several new people are also shown at Mission Control in the teaser, as well as a few familiar faces.
For All Mankind season 3 cast
Despite the large cast of For All Mankind’s third season, there will be some changes.
Since Gordo and Tracy Stevens dedicated their life to spare the Moon from nuclear catastrophe, Michael Dorman and Sarah Jones won’t be returning.
The rest of the primary cast will be back, but they will be donning older-looking make-up to reflect the ages of their characters, who are in their 40s and 50s. Ed Baldwin, Shantel VanSanten, Jodi Balfour, Ellen Wilson, Wrenn Schmidt, Krys Marshall, Danielle Poole and Sonya Walger make up the rest of the Baldwin family.
Aleida Rosales, Cynthy Wu, Kelly Baldwin, and Casey W. Johnson of the younger generation are all still on board. One of the latter two could even be the astronaut responsible for placing the boots on the Martian surface in the first instance.
He is a charismatic dreamer with a goal to go for the stars. Edi Gathegi joins the cast as Dev Ayesa.”
For All Mankind season 3 plot and season 2 finale, explained
For All Mankind’s season 2 finale is one of the year’s top episodes. With two favourite characters being killed off and an entirely new storyline being set up for season 3, it’s a gut-punch of a conclusion.
In the conclusion, both on Earth and on the moon, the war between the United States and Russia approaches a critical point. In a gunfight at the Jamestown facility, the Marines and Russian cosmonauts risk a nuclear reactor catastrophe.
It is imperative that Gordo (Michael Dorman) and Tracy (Sarah Jones) fix the problem to save everyone on the base and to keep the moon liveable for thousands of years. In order to survive the harsh conditions of the lunar surface, they encase themselves in duct tape. Despite their success in the end, they lose their lives. It’s a fitting end for a pair of heroes who died together.
As a Russian spacecraft orbits the moon, Ed (Joel Kinnaman) and Sally (Ellen Wroe) go head-to-head in a duel over exploding it to pieces.
Danielle (Krys Marshall) defies orders and docks with the Soyuz while in orbit around Earth on Apollo. Her handshake with a cosmonaut prompts President Reagan to make peace with the Russians, which is aired over the world.
When Margo (Wrenn Schmidt) receives a phone call from her Soviet counterpart, Sergei, it brings back painful memories of the Stevenses’ funerals. In reality, he’s working with agents of the government in an effort to make Margo an ally!
The camera then swoops over to Mars, where a pair of boots crunches on the red soil. It is 1995.
“The Red Planet becomes the new front in the Space Race not only for the U.S. and the Soviet Union, but also an unexpected new participant with a lot to prove and much more at stake,” Apple TV Plus states in its season 3 description.
There will be a “pressure cooker that develops to a cataclysmic finish” when characters “find themselves going head-to-head as their objectives for Mars come into conflict and their loyalties are tested.”
What’s in store for television and streaming? There is so much to be thankful for! Seasons 4 and 5 of Stranger Things, Yellowstone, The Umbrella Academy, The Last of Us on HBO, and House of the Dragon, the prequel to Game of Thrones, will premiere this year.
