The Office is leaving Netlfix for NBC’s Peacock, so the streaming giant is improvising a rendition as to not lose the show’s loyal fan-base. In this new workplace comedy, Steve Carell rallies a horde of government employees to create a new branch of the U.S. military, which – you guessed it right- is the Space Force. If this sounds familiar, do not deny the possibility of Netflix satirizing Donald Trump’s newest real-world branch of the military (also called Space Force). But for now, it is essential to focus on the when’s, who’s, and why’s.
A Starry Cast: Steve Carell, John Malkovich, Ben Schwartz, Diana Silvers, And Lisa Kudrow
Space Force on Netflix will float up to fill in for The Office as it moves to its new (former?) home. Expectedly, the brains behind Space Force are leaving no stone unturned to polish the upcoming comedy into a quality watch. The cast on board consists of big names from the industry. The Office fame Steve Carell toplines the project as General Mark R. Naird, while Emmy winning actor John Malkovich (The New Pope) plays Dr. Adrian Mallory on the show. Space Force has also enlisted several other names for its starry main cast, including Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreations), Diana Silvers (Booksmart), and Tawny Newsome (Bajillion Dollar Properties). In fact, the supporting cast also boasts a roster of alphas from the industry. Silicon Valley’s Jimmy O. Yang, Lisa Kudrow of Friends, for instance, will recur on the series.

Netflix will roll out all ten episodes of the show simultaneously in May. Coming from the stables of Steve Carell and Greg Daniels, the creative minds behind the office, Space Force has already set-up its hype currents. How the series fares remains a wait-and-watch scenario.
