'For All Mankind' Season 2 Trailer: US astronauts train their guns on the Soviets on the moon, fans are excited
At the end of 'For All Mankind' Season 1, we saw Edward Baldwin (Joel Kinnaman) stranded on the moon while the crew that was headed to rescue him and have him return to Earth ends up not even entering the orbit of the moon after a mishap. As a result, Deke Slayton (Chris Bauer) and Ellen Wilson (Jodi Balfour) go out of touch, as communication channels are shut due to technical difficulty. Deke is in fact injured and Season 1 ended with that cliffhanger.
The trailer of the second season, however, gives us hope at least regarding Edward and Ellen. The trailer though released earlier was shown at [email protected] this year due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic as co-creator Ronald D Moore unveiled a teaser trailer for the Apple TV+ series, which gives us a look at what to expect: armed American astronauts.
We see Edward has returned to Earth and Ellen seems to be safe as well. However, we don't see Deke in the trailer. Did he succumb to his injuries? Also, we have to watch out for how Edward is influenced by his son's death. His wife Karen was completely heartbroken and she did not even have him by her side. In the meanwhile, the Soviets seem to have overtaken the site on Moon that the US had laid claims on after Tracy Stevens (Sarah Jones) had found traces of H2O on Moon.
This could be a result of Edward breaking off communication after learning about his son's death. However, we would have to wait and see. With Ellen at the base, Tracy and Danielle Poole (Krys Marshall) on Earth, the astronauts are in a tough position as their country is all set to go all out against the Soviets. We see fighter jets, many astronauts walking on the moon and they seem to be headed towards the site and with the military base led by Ellen, it is going to be interesting to see where this race that began in Season 1 is headed.
The teaser shows flashes of a war waiting to break out, as we hear President Ronald Reagan's steady voiceover: “Let me state as plainly as I can: The greatest threat the United States faces is posed by the Soviet Union. History has asked much of the Americans of our time. Much we have already given. Much more we must be prepared to give.”
Fans have also expressed how they cannot wait to see the second of the show. One fan wrote, "Season two is gunna be a crazy ride. I’m so excited." Another fan wrote, "Queens of space are coming back omg to beat ass on the moon omg #ForAllMankind." Another viewer also wrote, "The space race between the United States and Soviet Union will charge into uncharted territory — and history, based on the first look at the second season of #ForAllMankind."
Another fan referred to the many astronauts on the moon holding guns and in the trailer and said, "I'm not saying Stormtroopers, but you guys... Astronauts. With big guns. In space. @forallmankind_season 2 is jumping ahead 10 years - and I can't wait to see what happens next! #ForAllMankind #ComicConAtHome2020."
Another excited fan shared, "It’s full Moonraker for season 2 of #ForAllMankind with Space Race going full Space Force."
While fans are excited with the trailer, they had hoped to hear about a premiere date, which was not revealed.
