Before I went to San Diego Comic-Con, where they announced a Season 4 Apple TV+ upgrade, I got to meet with For All Mankind cast members: Maril Davis, Jodi Balfour, Sonya Walger, Edi Gathegi, Wrenn Schmidt, and series co-creator Ronald D. Moore.
For All Mankind Season 3 takes place in the 1990s and involves three players (the United States, Russia, and a private corporation) in a dangerous race to be the first to land on Mars. Eventually, the Red Planet is reached, which opens the way to even greater danger.
For All Mankind was created by Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Moore and Emmy Award-nominated actors Ben Nedivi and Matt Wolpert. The ensemble cast returning for Season three includes Joel Kinnaman, Cynthy Wu, Casey Johnson, and Coral Pena.
Check out what they had to say in the player above, and Ive listed everything we talked about below.
