Unfortunately, Space Force has been cancelled at Netflix after two seasons. Much love to the cast and crew, and the fans!
DEADLINE – EXCLUSIVE: Netflix has opted not to renew Greg Daniels and Steve Carell’s comedy series Space Force for a third season.
The decision on the series, which starred John Malkovich and Ben Schwartz alongside Carell, comes two and a half months after Season 2 was released February 18. It did not break into the overall Nielsen streaming weekly Top 10 ranking but made a brief appearance on the streaming originals Nielsen charts, debuting at No. 8 and rising to No. 7 the following week. It also had a short presence in Netflix’s Daily Top 10 raking, peaking at around No. 5 after Season 1 had had a lengthy stay at No. 1.
Space Force was born with a lot of promise, reuniting The Office‘s developer/executive producer Daniels and star Carell. The show revolved around a group of people tasked with establishing the sixth branch of the United States Armed Forces, the Space Force. It assembled a top-notch class that included Carell, Malkovich, Schwartz, Tawny Newsome, Dianna Silvers, Don Lake and Jimmy O. Yang.
Season 2 picked up with General Naird (Carell) and his underdog team having to prove their worth to a new administration while dealing with interpersonal challenges.
