Apple renews For All Mankind and announces a spinoff series set in the Soviet Union

<p>For All Mankind <a data-i13n="elm:affiliate_link;sellerN:Apple;elmt:;cpos:1;pos:1" href=";siteId=us-engadget&amp;pageId=1p-autolink&amp;featureId=text-link&amp;merchantName=Apple&amp;custData=eyJzb3VyY2VOYW1lIjoiV2ViLURlc2t0b3AtVmVyaXpvbiIsImxhbmRpbmdVcmwiOiJodHRwczovL3d3dy5hcHBsZS5jb20vdHYtcHIvbmV3cy8yMDI0LzA0L2FwcGxlLXJlbmV3cy1nbG9iYWxseS1hY2NsYWltZWQtaGl0LXNwYWNlLWRyYW1hLWZvci1hbGwtbWFua2luZC1mb3Itc2Vhc29uLWZpdmUtYW5kLWFubm91bmNlcy1uZXctc3Bpbm9mZi1zZXJpZXMtc3Rhci1jaXR5LyIsImNvbnRlbnRVdWlkIjoiNzBiMTMxYTQtMGQxMC00YjkzLWI3M2UtNGI1ZDgxNDg3ZDMyIn0&amp;signature=AQAAAX2nDxMfBkSql1tDtrMeQU3ngGLxNFRaZvyYfWfdFy0U&amp;" class="rapid-with-clickid" data-original-link="">is coming back for a fifth season[/url] of space-based alt-history hijinks on Apple TV+. This is unsurprising news, given the near-universal critical acclaim <a data-i13n="cpos:2;pos:1" href="">heaped on season four[/url]. However, the company also surprise-announced a spinoff series called Star City that will follow the Russian space program.</p>
<p>Original series creators Ronald D. Moore, Matt Wolpert and Ben Nedivi are all onboard for Star City, though there’s no cast yet. The plot synopsis calls it a “robust expansion” of the universe and refers to it as a “propulsive, paranoid thriller.” It also looks to be taking viewers back to the events of season one of For All Mankind, chronicling the Russian moon landing that started the story.</p>
<span id="end-legacy-contents"></span><p>“This time, we explore the story from behind the Iron Curtain, showing the lives of the cosmonauts, the engineers and the intelligence officers embedded among them in the Soviet space program, and the risks they all took to propel humanity forward,” Apple wrote in a press release.</p>
<p>The company didn’t say if the show would rely on frequent time jumps, like its forebear. To that end, Apple hasn't released any casting information for season five of For All Mankind. Given the show’s propensity toward expansive time skips, it’s highly possible series regulars like Joel Kinnaman and Krys Marshall are on their way out. After all, their characters were really getting up there in age and stretching credulity in season four.&nbsp;</p>

<p>This is some seriously good news for sci-fi fans, but still doesn’t take away the brutal sting of <a data-i13n="cpos:3;pos:1" href="">Star Trek: Lower Decks getting canceled[/url]. Paramount should probably just sell Star Trek to Apple already, <a data-i13n="cpos:4;pos:1" href="">since the latter[/url] <a data-i13n="cpos:5;pos:1" href="">actually seems[/url] <a data-i13n="cpos:6;pos:1" href="">to care about[/url] <a data-i13n="cpos:7;pos:1" href="">science fiction[/url].</p>This article originally appeared on Engadget at
