Netflix sets release date for new Steve Carell comedy, ‘Space Force’

Based on the real life military branch that’s stranger than fiction.

Today, Netflix announced that its new comedy series Space Force will premiere on May 29.

The series was conceived and created by The Office writer/creator Greg Daniels and Steve Carell. Carell will also star as the show’s lead, a four-star general whose dreams of running the United States Air Force are derailed when he’s put in charge of the newly formed United States Space Force.

Listen to the latest episode of the AIPT Television podcast!

In addition to Carell, Space Force will feature a fantastic cast that includes John Malkovich, Lisa Kudrow, Ben Schwartz, Diana Silvers, Tawny Newsome, Jimmy O. Yang, Noah Emmerich, Alex Sparrow, and Don Lake.

One look at the trailer below (captured and uploaded by JoBlo) should give you a pretty good idea of what you’re getting.

If you’re like me, then the only “bad” news here is that we have to wait almost three months to watch this. In the mean time, here are some preview images along with Netflix’s official series synopsis:

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.
