For All Mankind Wiki

The second season of For All Mankind was renewed on October 15, 2019.[1]

The season is set about 10 years after the first season in the midst of the Cold War. It starts at May 21, 1983 and ends around end of September of the same year, with a short last scene in 1995 at the end of the final episode.

Season 2 premiered on February 19, 2021.


For All Mankind season two picks up a decade later in 1983. It’s the height of the Cold War and tensions between the United States and the USSR are at their peak. 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 militarization 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.
