Apple TV+ is clearly confident about For All Mankind. The alternate-history sci-fi series got a green light for a third season on Tuesday. And that’s months before the second season debuts on Apple’s streaming video service.

The show depicts a different version of the space race — one that begins with the USSR beating the US to the Earth’s moon.

For All Mankind dramatizes an alternate history

The first season of For All Mankind is available to stream now on Apple TV+. It covers America’s reaction to seeing a Russian become the first man on the moon.

Season two jumps forward to 1983, with tensions between America and its communist arch-rival at their height. It will begin airing on Friday, February 19, 2021 with a first episode. The remaining nine will air one per week on subsequent Fridays.

Watch the trailer to see what’s coming up.

More Apple TV+ sci-fi

For All Mankind is but one of the science-fiction shows offered by Apple’s streaming video service. Another option is See, an epic starring Jason Momoa about a a futuristic post-apocalyptic world in which a virus has robbed humanity of its eyesight.

And there’s the reboot of Steven Spielberg’s Amazing Stories, with each episode telling a new tale. There are ghosts, superheroes and time travelers in season one.

To top it off, Apple is working on a adaptation of Isaac Asimov’s ground-breaking Foundation series.
