‘For All Mankind’ gets a fifth season and a ‘Star City’ spin-off

The new “Star City” will go back to the beginning of “For All Mankind,” and see life from the Soviet side

Apple TV+ hit “For All Mankind” has been renewed for a fifth season, and a spin-off is also going back to the beginning for a new look at the Soviet space race.

“For All Mankind” was one of the first shows announced by Apple TV+ back at its launch in 2019, and is an alternative view of the space race. While it now seems a long way since its starting point of having the Soviets be the first to land astronauts on the moon, the drama has explored the entirely different reality that would have created.

Now according to Variety, Apple TV+ has renewed it for a fifth run, and at the same time commissioned the producers to create a spin-off. With a working title of “Star City,” the spin off will again start back with the Soviets beating America to the moon.

“Star City” will then “explore the story from behind the Iron Curtain,” says the show’s pitch as seen by Variety, “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.”

“Our fascination with the Soviet space program has grown with every season of ‘For All Mankind,'” Wolpert and Nedivi said. “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.”
