Apple TV+’s breakout sci-fi series For All Mankind has now returned for a fourth season on the streamer, but the creative minds behind the show aren’t planning to end the story any time soon, which will come as a relief to the dedicated fandom who have been following along with its fascinating alt-history space race story.

Den of Geek sat down with For All Mankind co-creators Ronald D. Moore, Matt Wolpert, and Ben Nedivi at New York Comic Con before the show’s season four launch, and they discussed some of the behind the scenes decisions they have to make about the ongoing story, along with their plans for For All Mankind’s future.

“When we were first breaking the series, even before season one, we talked about this overarching story that takes about seven seasons,” Wolpert confirms. “That’s our goal.”

Unlike other shows, that goal means forging a story that spans at least 70 years, because For All Mankind begins every season with a ten-year time jump. The audience has to quickly catch up with everything that’s happened in between seasons, so the creators always include a thrilling montage to bring fans up to speed immediately. Nedivi describes this as both a fun and “hellish” project to undertake.
