It’s a relatively quiet Friday for Apple TV+, with just one single episode of a new show on Apple’s streaming television service. Fortunately, that show is the entertaining space-age alternative history For All Mankind, now approaching the end of its second season.

Episode 8 of 10 is titled “And Here’s to You.” The preview reads: “Gordo returns to space. Molly faces an unsettling new reality. Aleida confronts her first major hurdle at work.” If you’ve not yet tuned in, this may be your chance, with just a couple of weeks to go until the finale.

Season two of For All Mankind premiered February 19, 2021. The show has already been renewed for a third season.

On reviews aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, For All Mankind season two has a critical rating of 100% based on 18 reviews. Meanwhile, the audience score is 76% based on 84 reviews. You can check out Cult of Mac‘s review here. That compares to a critical score of 73% and an audience score of 86% for season one, which debuted in late 2019.

Calm before the storm

This is one of the quieter weeks for Apple TV+ in a while. However, there’s plenty to look forward to from the rest of April. Next Friday, April 16, will be particularly epic. There will be a special Mythic Quest special episode ahead of May’s second season. There will also be nature documentaries The Year the Earth Changed, season two of The Earth at Night in Color and Tiny World. The month will then be capped off with The Mosquito Coast, a seven-episode miniseries adapting Paul Theroux’s novel of the same name, starring his nephew Justin Theroux.
