The real-life Space Force may not be up and running just yet, but Netflix is ready to release its satirical series about the new branch of the US military. Space Force is the highly-anticipated reunion of The Office creator Greg Daniels, and its award-winning star Steve Carell, which pokes fun at the government's new military plan. On Tuesday morning, Netflix released the first trailer for Space Force online, and it has TV fans everywhere excited to see what Daniels and Carell have in store for their next venture.
Space Force stars Carell as four star General Mark Naird, who has served in the Air Force for his entire career. When he thinks he's getting a promotion to take charge of the service, he is surprised to learn that he's being handed the keys to the newly-announced Space Force, and tasked with turning it into a functioning branch of the military.
John Malkovich also stars in Space Force, alongside Diana Silvers, Tawny Newsome, Ben Schwartz, Lisa Kudrow, Jimmy O. Yang, Noah Emmerich, Alex Sparrow, and Don Lake. Daniels serves as the showrunner with Howard Klein serving as executive producer. Not only does this mark an Office reunion between Daniels and Carell, but it also sees the acclaimed TV producer alongside Schwartz once again, after having worked with him on Parks and Recreation.
People online are already loving the new Space Force trailer. Take a look:

Dr. Strangelove Vibes
Getting a real Dr. Strangelove vibe from this. Love it. Thank you, Netflix, Greg Daniels, Steve Carell, and all of your famous friends. In summer with no blockbuster movies, #SpaceForce is an event worth looking forward to. https://t.co/lR4ONdbsPq— Kelly Konda (@WeMinoredInFilm) May 5, 2020

Sprinkles on the Cake
The first trailer for @NXOnNetflix's #SpaceForce is live, and it looks fantastic. Steve Carell and a killer, all-star cast around him. It looks huge, silly and like it could be a great distraction once it drops on May 29. Can't wait for this. https://t.co/lf2a1FFNxO pic.twitter.com/tW3RF2QLBq— Trent Moore (@trentlmoore) May 5, 2020
