For All Mankind Lands Renewal & Spin-Off


Apple TV+ has ordered a fifth season of the sci-fi drama For All Mankind, as well as the new spin-off series Star City.

Star City, from For All Mankind creators Ben Nedivi, Matt Wolpert and Ronald D. Moore, will expand the universe of the original show, portraying an alternative history where the Soviet Union was the first to put a man on the Moon. Both series are produced for Apple TV+ by Sony Pictures Television.

“Our fascination with the Soviet space program has grown with every season of For All Mankind,” said Wolpert and Nedivi. “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. We could not be more excited to continue building out the alternate history universe of For All Mankind with our partners at Apple and Sony.”

“With each new season, For All Mankind continues to build out a fascinating world and capture global audiences through high quality storytelling that has been so skillfully developed by Ron, Matt and Ben,” said Matt Cherniss, head of programming for Apple TV+. “There is so much to explore, and we, along with our partners at Sony, can’t wait to dive into this next chapter of the engrossing For All Mankind universe.”
