Apple TV+ has given us one of the most fascinating space series in recent years with For All Mankind, and this universe will soon expand. The streaming giant ordered the fifth season of this alt-history series and green-lit its first spin-off Star City.

For All Mankind is set in an alternate timeline, where the Soviet Union became the first nation to pull off a Moon landing instead of the United States. This changed the course of the space race and forced NASA to do everything in its power to catch up.

For All Mankind centers on the American program, but the new spin-off Star City will switch up the perspective and take us behind the Iron Curtain. It will show the lives of cosmonauts, engineers, and intelligence officers in the Soviet space program.

Matt Cherniss, head of programming for Apple TV+, said that there’s so much left to explore in the For All Mankind universe, and this spin-off will allow them to do just that.

“For All Mankind continues to build out a fascinating world and capture global audiences through high-quality storytelling that has been so skillfully developed by Ron, Matt and Ben. [We] can’t wait to dive into this next chapter of the engrossing For All Mankind universe,” said Cherniss in a statement.
