The first season of Netflix Space Force may not have passed with flying colors, but Greg Daniels and Steve Carell have been given a second chance with this new season. The series is set to return in three weeks, and we have a new trailer bringing back the amazingly fun cast.
Check out the Space Force season 2 trailer down here:
Besides Carell returning as the stoic military man Mark Naird, we have the return of several other kooky Space Force characters like scientists Dr. Mallory (John Malkovich) and Dr. Kaifang (Jimmy O. Yang), Captain Angela Ali (Tawny Newsome), and marketing rat F. Tony Scarapiducci (Ben Schwartz). Even Naird’s daughter Erin (Diana Silvers) looks to be given a larger part in this second season.
Of course, we shouldn’t forget that Season 2 is also going to have its share of guest stars. The Office fans will remember Tim Meadows, and Parks and Recreation lovers won’t forget Patton Oswalt and his epic Star Wars/Marvel filibuster pitch.
Showrunner Greg Daniels may not have cracked the formula for starting the series with a great first season, but he always manages to get back up (with spectacular results, I might add) when it comes to Season 2 of his shows. Hopefully Space Force manages to get on its feet this February, and Netflix will have filled that Office-shaped hole that was left by the series moving over to Peacock.
Here’s the official series description:
A four-star general begrudgingly teams up with an eccentric scientist to get the U.S. military’s newest agency — Space Force — ready for lift-off.
Space Force 2 comes back to Netflix on Feb. 18.
