For All Mankind renewed for a fifth season, the statements from the creators of the series and the first details on the spin-off Star City

Since its worldwide debut, For All Mankind has been hailed as “one of the best television shows” and the fourth season has achieved a 100% Certified Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The last season projected the series into the new millennium. In the eight years since season three, Happy Valley has rapidly expanded its presence on Mars by turning former enemies into partners. In 2003, the space program focused on capturing and extracting extremely valuable, mineral-rich asteroids capable of changing the future of Earth and Mars. But tensions among residents of the now extensive international base threaten to undo everything they are working towards.

“Our fascination with the Soviet space program has grown with each season of For All Mankind,” said executive producers Matt Wolpert and Ben Nedivi. “The more we learned about this secret city in the forests outside Moscow where Soviet cosmonauts and engineers worked and lived, the more we wanted to tell this story of the other side of the space race. We couldn't be more excited to continue building the For All Mankind alternate historical universe with our partners at Apple and Sony." Matt Cherniss, head of programming at Apple TV+, said: “With each new season, For All Mankind continues to build a fascinating world and captivate audiences through high-quality storytelling that has been expertly developed by Ron, Matt, and Well. There is so much to explore and, together with our partners at Sony, we can't wait to dive into this next chapter of the compelling For All Mankind universe."

According to initial details, the Star City spin-off will take viewers back to a key moment in the alternate history of the space race, when the Soviet Union became the first nation to put a man on the moon. This time, however, the story will be explored from behind the Iron Curtain, showing the lives of the cosmonauts, engineers, and intelligence agents involved in the Soviet space program and the risks they all took to advance humanity. Star City was created by Matt Wolpert, Ben Nedivi, and Ronald D. Moore. Nedivi and Wolpert serve as showrunners and executive producers alongside Moore and Davis of Tall Ship Productions.
