What started as a two-way wrangle between NASA and the Russian cosmonaut project has turned into a three-way race to the Red Planet as a billionaire joins in on the frenzy.
Apple TV's alternate space history series, For All Mankind that dominated several lists as the best series of the year last season, sets to premiere its third season on Friday 10.
The streaming platform released the series' third season trailer yesterday, seeing a time jump nearly ten years ahead, set in the 1990s with everyone set on lading on Mars.
Wrenn Schmidt starring Margo Madison, claims in the trailer, 'We're not going to place second again.' The previous season saw Margo's promotion to director of NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston from the first woman engineer in Mission Control.
The events of the trailer unravel to the 1994 soundtrack Black Hole Sun by Soundgarden. The query of who gets to Mars first is not the only concern the competitors face as they have to overcome challenges such as searching for water on the dust blanketed planet.
Joel Kinnaman starring Ed Baldwin, says, 'The survival of my crew depends on it.' Ed is the commander of Apollo 10 and Apollo 15 and the pioneer of NASA's future generation space shuttle Pathfinder.
As the 2-minute clip comes to an end, astronaut Danielle Poole (Krys Marshall) says, “It is only the beginning.” She is NASA’s first black astronaut and U.S. Commander of the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project.
Who Produced 'For All Mankind'?
Ben Nedivi and Matt Wolpert serve as the series’ showrunners in its third season while the executive producers are Maril Davis and Ronald D. Moore of Tall Ship Productions, joined by Bradley Thompson, David Weddle and Nichole Beattie.
The first episode of the show’s season 3 debuts on June 10, with a new episode dropping every Friday thereafter through August 12.
