Netflix has done it again, folks! The streaming giant and my forever bae has given the people what they need right now: comedy and an escape from this planet. Space Force follows Mark Naird (Steve Carell), a four-star general who finds himself leading the newly created sixth branch of the U.S. Armed Forces, the Space Force. Naird doubts himself at first, but with the help of his team he'll take on the challenge of making sure the United States lands on the moon once again! Former Office showrunner Greg Daniels helped write the series, so you know the classic antics the cult NBC comedy is known for will go down. And then there's the all-star cast: Jane Lynch, Lisa Kudrow, and Ben Schwartz are just some of the familiar faces that will show up on your screen. So before you go on your binging spree, here's everyone you'll find yourself laughing with in this new comedy.
