Tensions will ramp up between the United States and the Soviet Union in the second season of For All Mankind, a trailer for the Apple Original’s second season suggests.

Check it out below.

Posted over the weekend, the 70-second trailer — set to the Eurythmics’ “Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)” — doesn’t give away much of anything in terms of specific plot points. But it does suggest that there will be some exciting space-based action. In one scene, astronauts are depicted loading ammunition into guns. That suggests that there will be a major ramp-up in terms of the militarization of space.

Meanwhile, the voice of Ronald Reagan, who was elected in 1981 and the Eurthmyics song, recorded in 1982 and released in 1983, promises plenty of 1980s-set space drama.

For All Mankind, Apple’s alternate history, gets a second season

The first season of For All Mankind debuted on Apple TV+ in November 2019 as one of the streaming service’s debut shows. Its 10-episode first season concluded in December 2019.

For All Mankind is co-created by Ronald D. Moore, a Star Trek veteran who also masterminded the gritty Battlestar Galactica reboot. It is set in an alternate version of history where the Soviets were first to land on the Moon. The original season was well-received by fans.

Apple committed to a second series of the show even before the first had aired. It started shooting in November. However, production was halted due to the coronavirus-induced shutdown.

There’s no word on when season two of For All Mankind will debut. If Apple starts airing it one year after season one that gives Apple three more months to complete it for Apple TV+’s first year anniversary.
