Season 1 of For All Mankind is set to be released on November 14, 2023, just four days after the fourth season of the show. The one-of-a-kind science fiction play presents a different perspective on the space competition between the US and the Soviet Union. So far, the show has done exceptionally well on the streaming platform.
The Apple TV+ Original is a fascinating trip into an alternate history of space exploration, created by Emmy Award winner Ronald D. Moore (Battlestar Galactica), Matt Wolpert, and Ben Nedivi. The show’s premise is based on a radical change in history: What if the Soviets landed on the moon first, rather than the United States?
For All Mankind is based on a tale in which the Soviet Union lands a crew on the Moon before the United States, setting off a chain reaction that would change the path of history. Following that, the United States prepared to accomplish the huge achievement in an even more historic manner, with NASA making the audacious decision to send a woman into space.
The premise of this drama not only raises questions about the ongoing space race, but also about gender equality in workplaces during that time period. The producers’ precisely designed narrative, fascinating cast, and attention to historical facts have made the show a fan favourite among sci-fi fans.
As fans and followers prepare for the fourth season’s release on November 10, 2023, Blu-ray has announced the release of For All Mankind Season 1 in partnership with Sony Pictures Home Entertainment and Apple TV four days later. Season 1’s ten episodes will be distributed into four DVDs in 1080p ultra-high definition, with each episode featuring a 5.1 English DTS-HD MA audio track.
The four-disc package ensures that fans can rely on tangible media releases at a time when streaming rights change on a regular basis.
Joel Kinnaman (House of Cards), Michael Dorman (Patriot), Sarah Jones (Alcatraz), Shantel VanSanten (One Tree Hill), Jodi Balfour (Bomb Girls), Wrenn Schmidt (Outcast), Sonya Walger (Lost), and Edi Gathegi (X-Men: First Class) star in For All Mankind.
Since its premiere, the television series has received not only global notice but also critical acclaim. For All Mankind received a Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Award in the area of Outstanding Innovation in Interactive Programming, a Saturn Award in the category of Best Fantasy Television Series, and a Producers Guild of America Innovation Award.
The first season’s Blu-ray release will have a total runtime of 612 minutes and will not be rated.
