Netflix has ordered another season of Space Force, it’s a workplace comedy that might have drawn inspiration from President Donald Trump’s Space Force initiative. Production is slated to start in Vancouver in 2021.
Co-created by Steve Carell and Greg Daniels and starring Carell, the series centers on a decorated pilot together with dreams of conducting the Air Force, four-star overall Mark R. Naird (Carell) who is thrown for a loop when he finds himself tapped to direct the newly formed sixth branch of the US Armed Forces: Space Force. Skeptical but dedicated, Mark uproots his family and moves into a distant base in Colorado where he and a vibrant team of scientists and “Spacemen” are tasked by the White House with acquiring American boots on the moon (again) in a hurry and achieving total space dominance.
Carell and Daniels, who also serves as co-showrunner, executive produce with Howard Klein of 3Arts. Norm Hiscock (Parks & Recreation, People of Earth, Brooklyn Nine-Nine) also unites season 2 as executive producer and also co-showrunner alongside Daniels.
Returning cast regulars comprise Carell, John Malkovich, Ben Schwartz, Tawny Newsome, Diana Silvers and Jimmy O. Yang, who joins as a writer in Season 2.
