Here’s everything you need to know about Space Force Season 2.

What is it about?

Space Force is a workplace comedy about a new branch of the US military: the space force. It’s apparently a satire of Donald Trump, who founded said branch and has been widely mocked for it.

Series 2 will pick up from the cliffhanger ending of Series 1, which saw other forces within the military attempt to remove General Mark L Naird from Steve Carrell and replace him with someone who would be more aggressive and expansionist.

Who is in the cast?

Steve Carrell stars as General Mark L Naird, the military general in charge of Space Force. Carrell is obviously best known for his role in The US Office, but he’s also appeared in other movies and TV shows like The Morning Show, Beautiful Boy, and Vice.

John Malkovich plays Dr. Adrian Mallory, the science adviser who frequently clashes with Naird. You’ll recognize Malkovich from movies like Being John Malkovich and Of Mice and Men, and TV roles like The New Pope and The ABC Murders.

They’re joined by a big cast of comedy stars, including Ben Schwartz (The Afterparty), Lisa Kudrow (Friends), Tawny Newsome (Star Trek: Lower Decks), Diana Silvers (Booksmart), and Jimmy O. Yang. (Silicon Valley).

Is there a trailer?

Yes there is. You can see him – and Steve Carrell’s character stepping into classic comics – here.

When and how can I watch it?

Space Force Season 2 will be available to stream on Netflix on Friday, February 18.

The series will consist of 7 half-hour episodes (three less than season 1).

Why should I watch it?

Carrell and Daniels revealed that the production on this series was much less restricted and the actors had more opportunities to improvise – something they’re all supposed to be pretty good at.

It will also be interesting to see how what began as a satire of Trump continues to change and develop under a new president.
