For Apple TV+, this is a major step forward. A third season of the critically acclaimed space drama For All Mankind will premiere on Netflix on Friday, June 10 in an alternate universe in which the Soviet Union beats the United States to the moon, continuing the hotly contested space race. With the announcement came a small teaser video. “When united behind a shared objective, there is nothing we cannot achieve,” says the narrator, as the camera glides over the landscape of a red planet revealed to be Mars.
But in this timeline, there are astronauts on Mars – and it’s 1995. We’re in a new decade, though, so expect new faces to join the coterie of historical personalities that adorn the series. If you’ve ever wondered how Bill Clinton managed the space race, here might be your answer. To preserve everyone on the base and to prevent the moon from becoming uninhabitable for thousands of years, Gordo (Michael Dorman) and Tracy (Sarah Jones) must fix the situation. They run onto the lunar surface, duct-tape themselves up, and try to survive. They’re successful, but lose their lives in the process. They die as heroes, in each other’s arms.

All Mankind Season 3 Plot
Let us take a step back. When FAM Season Two begins, Gordo is a melancholy, middle-aged man with a beer gut and a droopy mustache. He is nominally still part of NASA but hasn’t flown a mission since suffering a nervous breakdown during an extended stay on the moon years ago, which was hushed up by crewmates Dani Poole (Krys Marshall) and Ed Baldwin (Joel Kinnaman) (Joel Kinnaman). He stays smitten with his ex-wife Tracy (Sarah Jones), who is likewise an astronaut in name only at this point in the plot, spending most of her time appearing on The Tonight Show and otherwise capitalizing on her celebrity status to promote the space program.
For Gordo’s sake and Ed’s, he insists on placing him back in the flight rotation, and Gordo goes to great lengths to get himself into the physical and emotional shape required to return to the lunar surface. After nearly dying the last time he wore one, the spacesuit itself is horrifying to him. As a result, he spends a lot of time dressing like one in his closet and swimming pool. And to ready himself for the journey and his attempt to win back Tracy — whose forthcoming stay on the moon would overlap his — he does, indeed, start running again.
Over the course of the season, this tale of redemption is told in great detail. At times, it’s a subplot that seems to be getting way too much attention, especially while FAM is juggling so many others. There are personal stories, such as Ed and his wife Karen (Shantel VanSanten) continuing to cope with the death of their son Shane during Ed’s last mission, as well as the desire of their adopted Vietnamese daughter Kelly (Cynthy Wu) to follow in Ed’s footsteps by attending the Naval Academy.
It’s possible to find professionals, such as Dani and NASA administrator Margo Madison (Wrenn Schmidt), who have to deal with the political minefield that is a combined mission involving an American Apollo spacecraft docking with a Soviet Soyuz module in orbital flight. There are also hybrids, such as Ellen Wilson (Jodi Balfour), a former astronaut who is now an administrator at the organization, despite the fact that she maintains her sexual orientation a secret.
And that’s only a portion of what happens over the course of 10 highly hectic episodes. In retrospect, it’s easy to wonder if FAM, like Ed Baldwin, trusted Gordo with more responsibilities than he was ready for, especially since the program only gained its footing in its first season when it started emphasizing more on the female characters like Tracy, Dani, Ellen and brash pilot Molly Cobb (Sonya Walger). Dornan’s fantastic, but why invest so much time in Gordo’s midlife crisis when FAM shines greatest with its females in focus?
