Great news, fellow Joel fans! For All Mankind has gotten a very early renewal, more than two months before the premiere of the second season. Congratulations to the cast and crew!

DEADLINEFor All Mankind is getting another early renewal. Apple TV+ has ordered a third season of the alt-history Space Race drama from Ronald D. Moore and Sony Pictures Television. The renewal comes more than two months before the series’ Season 2 global premiere on February 19. Production on the new season is slated to begin next spring.

For All Mankind‘s second season was picked up ahead of the show’s November 2019 series debut. It recently wrapped production, which had been interrupted by the coronavirus pandemic. The sci-fi drama had two episodes left to shoot from its ten-episode Season 2 order when filming shut down industrywide in mid-March. For All Mankind was among the first scripted series to resume production in August.

Joel is Sharp magazine’s final cover star of 2020! The Zoom interview delves a little into the characters that Joel has portrayed over the years. Check it out below, and outtakes in our gallery!

When Joel Kinnaman joins our Zoom call, I’m surprised to see a cloudless sky and shimmering ocean. He tells me that he and his best friend have recently decamped to Chicama, a small coastal town in northwestern Peru, for a holiday after wrapping production of the second season of his Apple TV+ show For All Mankind, which airs in January. “I’m in some kind of surfing paradise, and at the same time being consumed by the election and following that, biting my nails off,” he says, flipping the camera to show me the breathtaking view of the world’s longest wave.

This election represents a pivotal moment in American history. The agonizing process of counting votes in the days leading up to Biden’s win let our imaginations run wild about what the future holds. What does the future of democracy in America look like? How will this election shape the course of history? (Much to Kinnaman’s relief, two days after we speak, Joe Biden is voted president-elect and Kamala Harris, the first Black woman vice president–elect.)

These kinds of “what if” projections about the future are at the core of For All Mankind. The show presents an alternate history of the space race in which the Soviets beat the Americans to the moon. Kinnaman stars as Ed Baldwin, one of NASA’s top astronauts, who led the failed lunar mission, demoralizing NASA but inspiring the Americans to catch up, training women and women of colour — marginalized groups excluded from space exploration at the time — in the process. “The actual space race was kind of a depressing story,” says the Swedish–American actor. “It was like, we went to the moon and that was amazing, and then everyone was hoping and felt we were headed to outer space to continue human exploration, but then it just got dismantled.”

Kinnaman was drawn to the show’s intelligent writing and powerful storytelling. Each season jumps ahead in time, depicting the lasting political and cultural impact of life-changing events. “I thought it was just such a smart way of both telling that story, of leading up to that story, and then where we wanted it to go,” he adds. “It’s a way of telling a historic story with complete creative freedom for where it goes.”

Vertical Entertainment has acquired distribution rights to the crime drama, Brothers by Blood, which was previously known as The Sound of Philadelphia, starring Matthias Schoenaerts and Joel Kinnaman. It is set for release in select theaters and on demand on January 22, 2021.

VARIETY – Jérémie Guez wrote, directed and produced “Brothers By Blood,” based on Pete Dexter’s 1991 novel “Brotherly Love.” Set in Philly, the film follows Schoenaerts’ character named Peter, who watches helplessly a his sister is murdered — a brutal occurrence that leaves him with lasting generational wounds. The cast also includes Maika Monroe and Ryan Phillippe.

“‘Brothers by Blood’ explores family ties and the weight of the past that is transmitted from generation to generation, themes that have obsessed me since I was a kid and influenced me both as a writer and a director,” Guez said. “It has been an immense privilege to adapt Pete Dexter’s novel for cinema and an even greater privilege to be able to do so with such formidable actors. I am beyond thrilled to bring this story to audiences everywhere.”

“It’s fitting that a thriller like ‘Brothers by Blood’ be set against the backdrop of The City of Brotherly Love,” said Rich Goldberg, co-president of Vertical Entertainment. “With a plot that keeps you guessing, the film examines the costs of family loyalty and what anyone is willing to do — or not do — to prove that loyalty. We can’t wait to bring a film as exciting as this one to audiences everywhere.”
