You probably know by now that there will be a sixth branch of the U.S. military, known as the Space Force. What you might not know, is that Netflix jumped all over that very early and started making a comedy series. Throw in names like Steve Carell, John Malcovich, Lisa Kudrow and others, that's certainly more than enough to get your attention. Now we also know when the show will finally premiere on the streaming service.
In case you are just finding out about this series now, here is the official synopsis from Netflix:
"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. "
The new series takes off on Netflix a lot sooner than you might think, too. Space Force will be ready to serve May 29, 2020 only on Netflix.
