For All Mankind Will Be Back for a Fifth Season—and With a Soviet Space Program Spinoff, Too

Space is still the place for Apple TV+, which has renewed For All Mankind for a fifth season. The series imagines an alternate timeline in which the Soviets won the space race—so it makes a certain amount of sense that the streamer is adding a spinoff series, Star City, that will explore the Soviet space program.

Two of For All Mankind and Star City’s three creators, Matt Wolpert and Ben Nedivi, will showrun the new series. (Presumably Ronald D. Moore will stay busy with the original show.) In a statement, Wolpert and Nedivi said, “Our fascination with the Soviet space program has grown with every season of For All Mankind. The more we learned about this secret city in the forests outside Moscow where the Soviet cosmonauts and engineers worked and lived, the more we wanted to tell this story of the other side of the space race.”

Apple’s official description of the new show says:

Star City is a propulsive, paranoid thriller that takes us back to the key moment in the alt-history retelling of the space race — when the Soviet Union became the first nation to put a man on the moon. But this time, we explore the story from behind the Iron Curtain, showing the lives of the cosmonauts, the engineers and the intelligence officers embedded among them in the Soviet space program, and the risks they all took to propel humanity forward.

No casting or timeline has been announced for Star City, and neither show has a premiere date. The first four seasons of For All Mankind are available to watch on Apple TV+. icon-paragraph-end
