Apple TV+ Announces Return of Mankind and Servant

Two of Apple TV+’s best drama series will return for second seasons early next year: For All Mankind and Servant.

The former will premiere on February 19, with the first of 10 weekly instalments that explore what would have happened if the global space race had never ended.

The Ronald D Moore (Battlestar Galactica) series presents an aspirational world where NASA astronauts, engineers and their families find themselves in the centre of extraordinary events seen through the prism of an alternate history timeline in which the USSR beats the US to the moon.

Season two resumes a decade later in 1983, when it’s the height of the Cold War and tensions between the US and the USSR are at their peak. Reads the blurb:

Ronald Reagan is President and the greater ambitions of science and space exploration are at threat of being squandered as the US and Soviets go head to head to control sites rich in resources on the Moon. The Department of Defense has moved into Mission Control, and the militarisation of NASA becomes central to several characters’ stories: some fight it, some use it as an opportunity to advance their own interests, and some find themselves at the height of a conflict that may lead to nuclear war.

Joining the cast will be Cynthy Wu (American Vandal), Coral Peña (Chemical Hearts) and Casey W. Johnson (Rise).

S2 of Servant will debut on January 15 with the first of 10 weekly episodes.

Expect the thriller to take a supernatural turn when Leanne returns to the brownstone and her true nature is revealed, signalling a darker future for all.
