New to Apple TV+ in February

Season two of For All Mankind will blast off next month on Apple TV+.

The Ronald D. Moore (Battlestar Galactica)-produced global space race drama will stream weekly from February 19.

It presents an aspirational world where NASA astronauts, engineers and their families find themselves in the centre of an alternate history timeline — a world in which the USSR beats the US to the moon.

The 10-part S2 picks up a decade after the first, in 1983 at the height of the Cold War between the United States and the USSR. 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.

New to the cast will be Cynthy Wu (HolidateAmerican Vandal) as Ed and Karen Badlwin’s adopted daughter, Coral Peña (Chemical HeartsThe Post) as a brilliant engineer with a complicated past, and Casey W. Johnson (GLOWRise) as the son of astronauts Gordo and Tracy Stevens.

Apple already has commissioned a third season of For All Mankind.

Also new next month will be The Snoopy Show, which will comprise three seven-minute cartoons based on the iconic comic series (February 5), and Billie Eilish: The World’s a Little Blurry, the true coming-of-age story of the singer-songwriter and her rise to global superstardom (February 26).
