Sci-fi is a genre that can leave the audience in a perplexed state of surrealism and reality. For All Mankind is one of the biggest examples of it. For All Mankind is an acclaimed Apple TV+ sci-fi series that presents a fascinating space race between NASA and the Soviet Union that resulted in the colonization of the moon. By far, three seasons of the series are on air, and audiences are absolutely admiring it by binging it. Furthermore, the peaking fact is that it is set in an alternate timeline in which the Soviet Union sent the first man to the moon. In the third season of For All Mankind, NASA, Roscosmos, and the private company Helios Aerospace competed to land on Mars first, but their missions and plans to build bases there were thwarted by disasters. Thus many questions and possibilities(fan-made) fall onto For All Mankind season 4.
However, there isn’t much out about Mankind season 4, but we have gathered some things for all the series devotees. Please continue reading to discover everything we know so far on For All Mankind Season 4.
Every season of For All Mankind has a specific timeline that occurs roughly ten years after the previous season. Season 3 of For All Mankind takes place between 1992 and 1995, just before Ellen Wilson (Jodi Balfour), a former astronaut, was elected President of the United States. Because of internal strife at NASA, Ed Baldwin (Joel Kinnaman) left the organization to take charge of Helios’ Mars expedition. Thus, he leaves his colleague Danielle Poole (Krys Marshall) in order of NASA’s mission to the Red Planet. Furthermore, Dev Ayesa (Edi Gathegi), the flamboyant founder of Helios, and Karen Baldwin (Shantel VanSanten) join the company. Meanwhile, Aleida Rosales (Coral Pea), a NASA employee, put together that her mentor, NASA Director Margo Madison (Wrenn Schmidt), had divulged technological secrets to the Russians.
Moreover, astronaut Will Tyler (Robert Bailey, Jr.) came out as gay. Consequently, President Wilson questions Kelly Baldwin (Cynthy Wu), who had just arrived on Mars, is queer or not. Also, Kelly Baldwin falls pregnant.
The fourth season of For All Mankind will move the series’ timeline into the 2000s, causing another significant alteration. Similar to how the season 2 conclusion of For All Mankind saw the passing of fan favorites Gordo (Michel Dorman) and Tracy Stevens, the season 3 finale of the show abruptly killed off essential characters (Sarah Jones).
