For All Mankind: Season 2 Videos

Tv Season Info

Season two of the space drama 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.

Critic Reviews for For All Mankind Season 2

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (4)

There's rarely a time in "For All Mankind" where these big swings are unwelcome, but the show still has a little more to go before all its storytelling tools are calibrated to deliver the kind of imagination it so clearly (and, often, thankfully) has.

Feb 19, 2021 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

That's the sense of wonder For All Mankind has proven capable of capturing, and while Season 2 has its flaws, it's exciting to know that the story will keep advancing into the future.

Feb 19, 2021 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

Although its imagination occasionally stalls, the second season of For All Mankind eventually comes together to offer a thrilling journey through sci-fi drama.

Feb 18, 2021 | Rating: B | Full Review…

The For All Mankind Season 2 premiere is off to a brilliant start. Their trust in the audience is just what the doctor ordered, too.

Mar 4, 2021 | Rating: 4/2 | Full Review…

By holding steady in one place, these characters are given a chance to breathe and explore what a more diverse space program really means.

Feb 26, 2021 | Full Review…

As with the first season, what works best in this series is the angle of reimagining the past.

Feb 23, 2021 | Full Review…

As season premieres go, "Every Little Thing" is something of a slow start. There's so much catch-up to do, both with the series' characters and the world that it exists in that it's hard to know exactly what Season 2's larger focus will be.

Feb 22, 2021 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

For All Mankind is an examination of exceptional people and how and why they pursue glory. They may be astronauts and NASA engineers, but the story beats would be just as at home in a drama about politicians or movie stars.

Feb 22, 2021 | Full Review…

The show works as well as it does because it understands the deepest roots of American identity, good and bad - and its exploration of what is inevitable and what isn't is what makes For All Mankind such a fascinating watch.

Feb 19, 2021 | Full Review…

For All Mankind seems interested in exploring the ugly and bloody legacy of post-World War II USA ... But the messaging on For All Mankind season 2 is a bit muddled, almost as if it's afraid of alienating its primary audience: Americans.

Feb 18, 2021 | Full Review…

The series continues to excel at balancing its sprawling ensemble of characters, all of whom are driven by a dizzying array of motivations, with the precise textural demands of a well-dressed period piece.

Feb 18, 2021 | Rating: 9.4/10 | Full Review…

The season starts and ends on a strong note, and by the nail-biting climax... For All Mankind lives up to its thrilling potential.

Audience Reviews for For All Mankind: Season 2

  • Feb 24, 2021
    This is one of the best shows on television. Season 1 was brilliant (after episode 2). The concept, writing and actors are captivating. And it's gorgeous to watch. Not sure why the media outlets aren't screaming about it. So good.
  • Feb 23, 2021
    Alternative universe, space race, great character s, engaging premise, all of this makes for a compelling enough story I would of gave 4-5 stars if (Apple TV+) released the entire season at once, instead of weekly. Feels like a ripoff for a paid monthly subscription.
  • Feb 23, 2021
    For All Mankind is excellent. All of the Apple TV+ shows are of high quality.
  • Feb 20, 2021
    Been waiting eagerly for season 2 and it absolutely delivers! Women in this show are badass, smart, flawed, engaging, and real!
  • Feb 19, 2021
