The first three episodes of the new sci-fi TV series for Apple TV Plus, For All Mankind, is already available. Here’s a look at the show’s schedule, how to watch online, and the cast. This series is by Ron Moore and is attracting attention from fans who loved his Battlestar Galactica series.
‘For All Mankind’ Schedule
For All Mankind premiered its first three episodes on November 1. After this, one new episode will air weekly every Friday. According to Apple TV’s website, it appeared that new episodes would premiere at 12 a.m. Pacific on Friday (2 a.m. Central.) But when Heavy checked Apple TV Plus at 1:30 a.m. Central, the episodes were already online and available to watch. So if you’re wanting to watch as soon as they’re posted, it’s a good idea to start looking off and on after it turns midnight in your time zone every week, until we get a better idea of the episodes’ timing.
The first three episodes are titled Red Moon, He Built the Saturn V, and Prime Crew. There are 10 episodes total this season. Here are the rest of the episodes:
- November 8: Nixon’s Women
- November 15: Into the Abyss
- November 22: Home Again
- November 29: Hi Bob
- December 6: Rupture
- December 13: Dangerous Liaisons
- December 20: A City Upon a Hill
