News about the highly rated Apple TV+ sci-fi show For All Mankind’s fourth season is slowly making its way out. For All Mankind takes place in a different time period where the Soviet Union put the first person on the moon. It shows an interesting space race between NASA and the Soviet Union that led to the moon becoming a colony.
For All Mankind season, 3 showed a race between NASA, Roscosmos, and Helios Aerospace to be the first to land on Mars. In the end, they all worked together. Disasters, on the other hand, slowed down their trips and plans to build permanent bases on Mars.
It’s different for each season of For All Mankind; each one takes place about ten years after the last. Ellen Wilson, played by Jodi Balfour, was chosen President of the United States in 1995, which is when season 3 of For All Mankind takes place. Because things were going badly at NASA, Ed Baldwin (Joel Kinnaman) quit to lead Helios’s mission to Mars.
His coworker Danielle Poole (Krys Marshall) was in charge of NASA’s mission to the Red Planet. Season 4 of For All Mankind takes place in the 2000s, which is another big change for the show. Here’s everything we know about season 4 of For All Mankind.
For All Mankind Season 4 Recent News
Not much has been said about For All Mankind season 4, but many of the cast have hinted at what’s to come for their roles since season 3. Joel Kinnaman, for instance, has been very open about his part in the new season and how the time jump will affect his character. In season 4 of For All Mankind, Kinnaman plays the made-up American astronaut Edward Baldwin. This role has given him the chance to play people of a lot of different groups. This is because every season the show jumps ahead ten years.
Already in the first three seasons, Kinnaman’s Edward Baldwin has lost thirty years of age. In season 4 of For All Mankind, he will go back in time another ten years, making him thirty years older than he is now. Kinnaman told The Ringer that he is looking forward to the difficulties of the part.
In the conversation, Kinnaman also said that playing someone so much older for a whole season is different and new. For a scene or short part of a movie or TV show, he said, most of the time. He said that the idea for this came from a science study that showed how people change so much in ten years that they are almost like different people. “The physical signs of getting older become a bigger part of the act as the years go by,” he said.
For All Mankind Season 4 is Confirmed
On July 22, 2022, a little more than a month after season 3 started, Apple TV+ officially picked up For All Mankind for a fourth season. Not yet, though. There is no date set for the release of For All Mankind season 4. The third season of For All Mankind started on June 10, 2022, about 15 months after the second season ended on February 19, 2021.
Based on the same 15-month production window, season 4 of For All Mankind looked like it would come out in the fall of 2023. Early in 2023, shooting for the show ended, and it moved into the post-production phase. Now, all that’s left is for Apple to announce the official date for season 4 of For All Mankind.
For All Mankind Season 4 Cast
The group for season 4 of For All Mankind looks great and very big. Most of the major cast is likely to be back, including Joel Kinnaman as Edward “Ed” Baldwin. Ed is an American who used to be an astronaut. This is his fourth season on the show, and he looks forty years older than he did in the first season. Shantel VanSanten, who played Karen, Ed’s wife, will not be back for season 4 of For All Mankind. She died at the end of the third season of For All Mankind.
Jodi Balfour as Ellen Wilson, Krys Marshall as Danielle Poole, Cynthy Wu as Kelly Baldwin, Casey W. Johnson as Danny Stevens, Coral Peña as Aleida Rosales, and Edi Gathegi as Dev Ayesa are some of the other players who are due to come back. There will also be some new actors. Daniel Stern from Home Alone joined the fourth season of For All Mankind as Eli Hobson. Tyner Rushing from “The Termination List” joined as Samantha, and Toby Kebbell from “Servant” joined as Miles.
Also, the end of season 3 had a big surprise. Karen and Molly Cobb (Sonya Walger) died in the terrorist attack, but Wrenn Schmidt’s character, Margo Madison, lived. It was she who betrayed the US and let Russia extradite her. She was still living in Russia in 2003 when the season finale went back in time. Schmidt will likely be back as Margo in season 4 of For All Mankind.
For All Mankind Season 4 Story Details
The show will go back in time to 2003 based on the last scene of For All Mankind’s third season. There will be a new Director of NASA to replace Margo Madison, who is now living in Russia and may be working for Roscosmos.
Ellen Wilson will no longer be President at this time. Kelly, her baby (who will be about 8 years old now), Danielle, Ed, and Danny Stevens (Casey W. Johnson) should be back from Mars. However, things may have gone better with settling on Mars since season 3’s many disasters there.
Karen Baldwin and Molly Cobb (Sonya Walger) said goodbye to For All Mankind season 3, and neither will be back for season 4. In season 4 of For All Mankind, it’s still unclear what will happen with history, how technology will advance, and whether NASA will try to send a probe to Jupiter.
