For All Mankind season 4 potential release date, cast, plot and everything you need to know


For All Mankind imagines an alternate history where Russia beat America to the moon. Thankfully, we don’t have to imagine a world where For All Mankind stopped with season three, because Apple TV+ already confirmed the show will be returning before this latest season had even come to an end.

The renewal was announced at San Diego Comic-Con at the end of July. Thanks to this early confirmation, new episodes will hopefully be rocketing our way a bit quicker than usual.

But what will happen exactly? Season three moved us through the ’90s with a new goal, Mars, so what lies ahead in the 21st century?

Suit up and join us here at Digital Spy as we reveal everything you need to know about For All Mankind season four on Apple TV+.

For All Mankind season 4 potential release date: When will it air?

When Apple TV+ announced the season four renewal and San Diego Comic-Con, they also revealed that production on this next season was scheduled to start in August 2022. Assuming that everything is on track, we could see new episodes launch in Winter 2023.

For All Mankind could even return sooner than that if everything goes smoothly, although that’s currently the time frame we expect to see play out if previous launch dates are anything to go by.

For All Mankind season 4 cast: Who will be in it?

As with any show that jumps forward across multiple time periods, the cast of For All Mankind changes quicker than most. But with that being said, we can probably assume that most of the following will return again in season four:

• Joel Kinnaman as Edward “Ed” Baldwin
• Jodi Balfour as Ellen Wilson
• Wrenn Schmidt as Margo Madison
• Krys Marshall as Danielle Poole
• Cynthy Wu as Kelly Baldwin
• Casey W. Johnson as Danny Stevens
• Coral Peña as Aleida Rosales
• Edi Gathegi as Dev Ayesa

It’s also likely that CS Lee will return as North Korean astronaut Lee Jung-Gil following episode nine’s shocking twist and the finale fallout that followed.

Given her prominent storyline as the first female – and gay – President in America, we assume that Jodi Balfour will return as Ellen Wilson, but this role might be reduced somewhat as she’s also on track to star in the next season of Ted Lasso.

Following the horrific tragedy that takes place at the end of season three, two cast members who likely won’t return are Sonya Walger (Molly Cobb), and Shantel VanSanten (Karen Baldwin). Flashbacks aren’t a regular occurrence on this show, but we wouldn’t rule them out returning briefly along these lines, or perhaps even in memorial pictures and footage.

For All Mankind season 4 plot: What will happen?

As fans have come to expect by now, For All Mankind’s season-three finale brought all the drama, and then some.

While Ellen dealt with the fallout of her coming out speech, Mars turned into an actual shit-show with the arrival of Lee Jung-Gil, Kelly’s pregnancy issues, and Danny’s long-awaited confession.

But against all odds, Ed managed to save his daughter, Kelly, along with “Lil’ Ed”, his future grandchild. It was a deeply moving moment of grandeur that contrasted dramatically with the way that season two ended. That doesn’t mean the finale was free of tragedy though.

In a shocking twist, major characters ended up dying on earth instead when a bomb took out half of the Johnson Space Centre, which was historically the only place our faves were usually guaranteed to be safe.

Hundreds died in the explosion, including two of the show’s biggest characters who have been with us since day one. While no specific season four details have been revealed just yet, expect this trauma to still impact the show moving forward now that we’ve jumped ahead from 1995 to 2003.

But what does this jump mean for Margot? Why is she now in what looks like Russia? Will Ellen still be with her one true love as President? And will Ed continue to rock that muscular physique now he’s another eight years older? The answers to all of this and more lie in the stars AKA For All Mankind season four.

For All Mankind season 4 trailer: When can we see it?

New footage of For All Mankind isn’t available just yet, but we have our best minds on the case, so keep checking back here to see trailers for season four when they do eventually arrive in 2023.

For All Mankind is now streaming on Apple TV+.
