Apple TV+ has officially announced the renewal of its globally acclaimed space drama "For All Mankind" for a fifth season. Fans of the series can rejoice not only over its return but also the introduction of a thrilling new spinoff series titled "Star City."

Created by the award-winning team of Ronald D. Moore, Matt Wolpert, and Ben Nedivi, "For All Mankind" has captivated audiences with its alternate history of the space race.

As the narrative propels into new millennium challenges in Mars colonization, tensions rise, creating a rich backdrop for dramatic storytelling.

Parallel to this, the new series "Star City" offers a fresh perspective by delving into the Soviet space program. This propulsive thriller will explore the lives of cosmonauts and engineers, uncovering the risks and espionage that propelled the Soviets to historical heights in this fictional universe. The series aims to showcase the Soviet side of the space race, focusing on a secretive city outside Moscow that served as the nerve center for their space endeavors.

Executive producers Wolpert and Nedivi expressed their excitement about expanding the series universe, citing a deep fascination with the Soviet space program as a driving force behind the creation of "Star City." They are eager to explore this less-told side of the space race, promising a story filled with intrigue and historical reimaginings.

Both "For All Mankind" and "Star City" are produced by Sony Pictures Television for Apple TV+, with the creators at the helm, ensuring continuity in style and substance. Apple TV+'s head of programming, Matt Cherniss, has expressed his anticipation for these series to further explore and develop the rich narrative landscape established by Moore, Wolpert, and Nedivi.
