Are you getting tired of rewatching The Office yet? No, of course you’re not. Even so, the show’s creator Greg Daniels is teaming back up with Michael Scott himself, Steve Carell, to give you something brand new to binge later this month – and you’re not going to want to miss this one.
Netflix’s upcoming workplace comedy, Space Force, places Carell in another leadership position, this time as General Mark Naird. Having served most of his adult life in the United States Air Force, Naird is excited to hear he’s being promoted and is under the assumption that he’ll be taking over the service to which he’s pledged so many years. Instead, he’s selected to lead a new branch known as – you guessed it – the Space Force, an undertaking that he’s not particularly excited about.
The show got its first trailer yesterday, giving us a glimpse at the type of comedy we’ll be getting. And while it looks a bit less like a documentary and more like a highly-produced series, Space Force nevertheless seems to retain Daniels’ classic brand of humor that we’ve all grown to love and appreciate.
Speaking of loving things, the internet went completely wild for the new trailer, and many went on to Twitter to express their reactions to it. You can hardly blame them, either, as it does look like a really good time.

The first trailer for @NXOnNetflix's #SpaceForce is live, and it looks fantastic. Steve Carell and a killer, all-star cast around him. It looks huge, silly and like it could be a great distraction once it drops on May 29. Can't wait for this. https://t.co/lf2a1FFNxO pic.twitter.com/tW3RF2QLBq

Getting a real Dr. Strangelove vibe from this. Love it. Thank you, Netflix, Greg Daniels, Steve Carell, and all of your famous friends. In summer with no blockbuster movies, #SpaceForce is an event worth looking forward to. https://t.co/lR4ONdbsPq

YOU GUYS. I've been waiting for this ever since it was announced and I am SO excited. I'm a big Greg Daniels fan, and perhaps an even bigger @SteveCarell fan. #SpaceForce #Netflix https://t.co/0RYDBdsPlH

Plenty of other famous faces will be making an appearance on Space Force as well, including John Malkovich, Lisa Kudrow, Noah Emmerich, and Ben Schwartz. With so many great actors putting their all into the show, it’s almost guaranteed to be another big hit for Daniels and another binge-worthy experience for all of us.
Space Force launches onto Netflix on May 29th, 2020.
