Steve Carell to star in new Netflix comedy series 'Space Force'

Steve Carell

Space Force is happening. The Office showrunner Greg Daniels and its former star, Steve Carell, who've just been announced as the creators of a brand-new Netflix comedy series called Space Force. "The goal of the new branch is to "defend satellites from attack" and "perform other space-related tasks" ... or something", reads the promo. It's still very early in the year, and if Carell and Daniels have a clear plan to start production, they could get this show on Netflix by the fall of 2019.

The series takes aim at President Donald Trump, who once discussed the creation of an American Space Force in 2018.

With fast foods chains dunking on our president and a shutdown that has no end in sight, 2019 is proving to be a topsy-turvy time in the ol' USA of A. Further proof? Deadline reports that Howard Klein - who worked on The Office as an executive producer through its run - will join Carell and Daniels as executive producer.

Daniels was responsible for adapting the original United Kingdom series of The Office to the hugely successful USA version which aired from 2005 to 2013.




And with no release date announced, it's not clear whether episodes have already been shot. Unfortunately, Netflix did not announce exactly when this series would be available, but there's a decent chance we could see this series this year.

We don't know when Space Force is coming out, but Netflix did say "coming soon", so fingers crossed that it actually is soon.

But fans of Carell and "The Office" might have to wait some time.

Since leaving The Office in 2013, Carell has focused on his movie career, mostly starring in dramas like The Big Short, Vice and Foxcatcher, for which he received an Oscar nomination for best actor.
