The pandemic has been getting to us––at least for the past few weeks. Not getting to see our friends physically, no going out––just us, Netflix, and a whole ton of sleep. I guess who can complain, am I right?
However, one of TV and film’s most beloved Steve Carrell is here to save the day with a brand new comedy coming to Netflix in May.
When criticizing a film that hasn’t been launched yet, we rely on the title and the synopsis for context. But for this one, considering it’s Steve Carell––anything is possible and truly wacky.
With the streaming platform having launched photos of the logo and the uniforms to be used alongside the premiere date through their Twitter account last Wednesday, it’s safe to assume that Space Force is going to be one hell
FIRST LOOK: Steve Carell is the head of Space Force, the newly formed sixth branch of the US Armed Forces.

“Deadpan” as the streaming would like to describe their newest comedy. Carrell will be playing four-star general and a very decorated Air Force pilot by the name of Mark R. Naird, who has just received a call to lead the new Space Force. Alongside Carrell are stars John Malkovich, Friends alum Lisa Kudrow and Jimmy O. Yang of Silicon Valley
“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,” reads the Netflix plot summary.
The show is a sort of reunion for Carrell, being the co-creator of the series, and Greg Daniels who serves as the developer of The Office and the showrunner for the new comedy.
Mark the 29th of May on your calendar and before that, get ready for a trailer. I’d just like to tell you that there will be moon-camouflage uniforms.
