We are REALLY looking forward to Netflix’s upcoming series “Space Force.” No flowery words, no clever jokes- it just seems like the perfect mix of dry, witty humor and complete understanding of how stupid the “real” Space Force is.
A brand new, full-length trailer for the Steve Carrell-led show just hit this morning, along with an official synopsis and tie-in podcast announcement (both of which you can read below the trailer).
About “SPACE FORCE“: A decorated pilot with dreams of running the Air Force, four-star general Mark R. Naird (Steve Carell) is thrown for a loop when he finds himself tapped to lead the newly formed sixth branch of the US Armed Forces: Space Force. Skeptical but dedicated, Mark uproots his family and moves to a remote base in Colorado where he and a colorful team of scientists and “Spacemen” are tasked by the White House with getting American boots on the moon (again) in a hurry and achieving total space dominance. From co-creators Carell and Greg Daniels (“The Office“), “SPACE FORCE” is a new kind of workplace comedy, where the stakes are sky high and the ambitions even higher. John Malkovich, Diana Silvers, Tawny Newsome, Ben Schwartz also star, alongside co-stars Lisa Kudrow, Jimmy O. Yang, Noah Emmerich, Alex Sparrow and Don Lake. Howard Klein/3Arts (“The Office“) serves as executive producer, with Daniels as showrunner.

Yang starting May 29th as he welcomes the cast and crew behind the new Netflix series Space Force for a 10-part podcast exploring the stories behind the show.
