With it, you can uncover memories from the lives of the show’s main characters in the decade between season one and season two. Specifically, memories are for show characters like Danny Stevens and his parents, as well as astronauts Gordo and Tracy Stevens.
You can now download the official app for the show through the App Store.
The official podcast, too
The new app is in addition to the official podcast that launched recently, hosted by actor Krys Marshall who plays Danielle Poole in the series. The podcast series will see new episodes uploaded weekly. Moreover, it will present other actors from the series as well as space experts, former astronauts and more.
Season 2 of “For All Mankind” premieres on Apple TV+ this coming Friday, February 19.
The Cold War is at its peak
Season 2 will bring greater antagonism between the world’s two superpowers, the US and the USSR. Set in 1983, season 2 sees Ronald Reagan as president while the US and Soviets go head-to-head to control sites rich in resources on the moon.
Mission Control also gets militarized as the Department of Defense takes over. This becomes a central theme to several characters’ stories. According to Apple’s description of the show, “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.”
