For All Mankind Trailer - Apple TV- SPOILER

I think that may be the storyline for the last season or rather something that will be hinted at in the season finale for how the history will go on. Either through flashfowards showing scientists and engineers starting to build the first interstellar generational ship ( please don't cross into pop SF territory and have them suddenly discover FTL drives) or some news snippets that casually mentioning interstellar travel being discussed or designed. At least that's my wish for the show to keep consistent with its attempt at hard SciFi.
I would be a fitting end to see radical but realistic ideas discussed in regards to interstellar propulsion, but I would also be disappointed to see FTL get any screen time. I think the beauty of this show is that we get to see what the human race could've done under the right circumstances and safely within the realm of reality.
Mireille Enos just booked one moonshot of a job.

She’s joining the Season 5 cast of Apple TV+’s For All Mankind, TVLine has confirmed. Our sister site Variety first reported the casting.

Enos will play Celia Boyd, a member of the Peacekeeper Security Force on Mars. The actress’ previous TV work includes Lucky Hank, Hanna, Good Omens, Big Love and The Catch.

The role could mark a reunion of Enos and her The Killing co-star Joel Kinnaman, who starred in the space-race drama’s first four seasons but whose presence in Season 5 is not guaranteed. Allow us to explain:

For All Mankind‘s Season 4 finale concluded with a nine-year time jump from 2003 to 2012, which revealed that asteroid Goldilocks is now home to the Kuznetsov Station. The episode was less clear about which characters had made it to that future. When TVLine spoke with showrunners Ben Nedivi and Matt Wolpert after Season 4 wrapped, we asked if Kinnaman’s Ed — who (thanks to the show’s time jumps) is aging quickly and who is ill — would be back for Season 5.

“At this point, we don’t want to say anything, honestly,” Nedivi said, citing that the show hadn’t yet been renewed. (That did eventually happen, in April 2024.) “So I would leave that open. … In general, the rule has been, for Matt and I at least, if we feel there’s no more story to tell with [a] character, and by story, I mean good, meaty story, then that’s usually the sign that it’s time to move on.”

A rep for Apple TV+ told TVLine there are “no additional casting updates to share at this time.”
