Netflix Space Force Series? Now, THAT I Can Get Behind

Existential Threats to Our National Security in Space? Don’t Worry, Seve Carell and Greg Daniels Are In Charge in the New Netflix Space Force Series—If It Ever Gets Here.

Clear back in January, Netflix announced the creation of a comedy series about President Beeblebrox’s ridiculous Space Force idea. The series stars Steve Carell, and he and Greg Daniels created the show. According to IMDb, ten episodes exist. The streaming service has the show listed in its menu, and they even created this “trailer” for the Netflix Space Force series:

Okay, I’ll Admit—It’s a Bit Lackluster…

Still, am I the only one who thinks this would probably be hilarious? Further, am I the only one who wonders why there’s such a delay in releasing it?

I’ve scoured the internets for a good twenty minutes on this now and I can’t find much about this show that wasn’t published back in January.

We know it’ll have ten episodes in the first season. Further, we know it’ll be at least somewhat similar to The Office. We also know that it will ruthlessly poke fun at the concept of a Space Force. Not much else. 

Why No Release Date Yet?

Okay, don’t get your conspiracy theory feathers all ruffled yet. LIsten, I would love to sit here and write that the Beeblebrox administration is actively suppressing the release of this documentary. I mean, it pokes fun at his idiotic idea, and we can’t have that. Also, he’s made a habit for the past decade of attempting to discredit or outright deny any story about him that paints him in a negative light. The next step for any megalomaniacal dictator-to-be is to start outright suppressing stories or art that makes him look bad. Again, I’d love to report that with a straight face, but, in the words of my hero Jules Whinfield, “That sh*t ain’t the truth.”

The truth is (probably) that Netflix signed on for the show in January because it’s going to be losing The Office and Friends within the next couple of years. Without big-name sitcoms like that, the streaming giant will need some quality content of its own. And if Seve Carell is what the viewers want, then Netflix stands ready to deliver. 

Sorry, No Conspiracy… (Probably)

Now, I love a good “Obama Turned My Frog Gay With Chemicals” conspiracy theory as much as the next guy. However, given the choice between some deep-state collusion designed to bring about the new world order, and a bunch of execs trying to cover their respective arses because they’re about to lose a key market, I know which one I’m going to believe.

The show is expected to follow the now all-too-familiar format of The Office. Therefore, fans should stick around to watch what the producers can do with a farcical premise they couldn’t have written if they’d tried. 

While nobody’s announced an official release date, rumors say we should expect the series sometime next year. I’ll keep my fingers crossed.
