Nearly two years after Netflix’s Space Force blasted onto the streaming platform with its comedic sci-fi spoof, the hit series returns this week for its sophomore season. For avid fans hoping for another flight of episodes to capitalize on the show’s definite potential, their geeky hopes have been answered.
Space Force first debuted back in May 2020, and Season 1 follows the shaky career of General Mark R. Naird (Steve Carell), a four-star leader who is unexpectedly assigned the command for a new division of America’s military dedicated to bolstering the nation’s dominance in space and getting astronauts back to the Moon.
Naird takes on the challenge and relocates his family to Colorado to supervise this new military arm. He joins a questionable team of scientists and spacemen to build up the program amid a galaxy of challenges and obstacles.
