For All Mankind has added City Slickers and Home Alone star Daniel Stern to its upcoming fourth season, in which he will act as a series regular. His character is likely to significantly change the direction of the show, which is an alternate history in which the USSR beat the U.S. to the moon. For All Mankind centers on the stories of NASA astronauts, engineers, and their families find themselves in the center of extraordinary events seen through the prism of an alternate history timeline. And Stern will play the new administrator of NASA -- one who has a big mission statement.
Season 4 of For All Mankind will join an expanding offering of global hit Apple Originals recently renewed, including Loot, Schmigadoon!, Severance, Pachinko, The Afterparty, and Slow Horses, as well as award-winning comedies Ted Lasso, Mythic Quest, Dickinson, and more.
Deadline reports that Stern will play Eli Hobson, the new administrator at NASA. A former auto industry CEO, he's been tasked with bringing the agency into the 21st century, a challenge much bigger than he anticipated.
You can see a synopsis for the series below.
"Described by critics as 'one of the best shows currently on TV,' For All Mankind explores what would have happened if the global space race had never ended.
"The propulsive third season of the alternate-reality series, which premiered to rave reviews on Friday, June 10th, takes viewers to a new decade, moving into the early '90s with a high-octane race to a new planetary frontier: MARS. The Red Planet becomes the new front in the Space Race not only for the U.S. and the Soviet Union, but also an unexpected new entrant with a lot to prove and even more at stake. Our characters find themselves going head-to-head as their ambitions for Mars come into conflict and their loyalties are tested, creating a pressure cooker that builds to a climactic conclusion.
