As reported by Deadline, Space Force, the Steve Carell and Greg Daniels sitcom about a fictionalized version of the yes-still-real Space Force branch of the US Armed Forces has been renewed for a second season. The show stars Steve Carell as a four-star general tasked with running the least practical branch of the armed forces, in what is an on-brand workplace comedy for Carell and a pretty fun satire of American jingoist nonsense. (I also hear it’s pretty funny.)
The show stars Steve Carell, John Malkovitch, Ben Schwartz, Tawny Newsome, and others. Production is supposed to start up in Vancouver next year. Carell and Daniels produce, with Daniels serving as co-showrunner alongside Norm Hiscock, who has worked on Parks & Recreation and Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
The Space Force has released a 64-page military doctrine, explaining why the United States needs to flex its muscles in space and how the nascent military branch will seek to maintain dominance in a domain so far untouched by warfare.Read more
