Here’s Apple’s preview for all three new episodes.
The Morning Show Episode 6 is titled “The Pendulum Swings.” The preview notes that the morning show-within-a-show team covers the California wildfires. Meanwhile, Alex and Bradley “struggle to keep their relationship from going up in flames.”
In Episode 6 of See, titled “Silk,” Baba and family are betrayed. Queen Kane uses her cunning to solve a new conflict.
Finally, Episode 6 of For All Mankind is called “Home Again.” “A launchpad accident leads to delayed missions and FBI background checks,” reads the episode summary.
Rolling out new Apple TV+ episodes gradually
Apple TV+ debuted on November 1. In contrast to Netflix, Apple TV+ is rolling out its flagship shows one episode at a time. It launched with three episodes of the shows to get people into them.
But after that it has debuted one new installment per week to keep people from binge-watching them all at once. It seems that Apple will be applying the same rule to future shows, too. The upcoming creepy series Servant will also debut next week with three episodes. After that, it’ll stick with the established one episode a week format.
Both For All Mankind and The Morning Show will have 10 episodes in their first seasons. See has just eight. All three shows have already been renewed for a second season.
For some reason, Apple isn’t doing this with its shows aimed at younger audiences. Apple TV+ debuted the entire season of Dickinson at once. Apple also released multiple episodes of its kids’ shows Helpsters, Ghostwriter and Snoopy in Space all in one go.
So far, Apple TV+ has enjoyed mixed reviews from critics and audiences. A lot of the critical response has been pretty vitriolic, whereas fans seem to be enjoying the shows. This can be seen by the disparity between critic and user reviews on Rotten Tomatoes. The producers of The Morning Show blamed negative reviews on “Apple haters”.
