No joke, Steve Carell’s ‘Space Force’ parody is launching on Netflix in May

We can't f'ing wait.

I cannot wait for Space Force.

No, I’m not talking about the newest branch of the armed forces. I’m talking about the Netflix original series which is, well, basically one giant multi-episode parody of its namesake.

Starring Steve Carell, Space Force is set to air on the streaming service on May 29. Leading up to the show’s launch, their official Twitter account continued its trend of poking fun at the premise of making an entire series about a newly established military service, and dropped a few promotional photos in the process.

Even before the military’s newest branch was officially established in December, it faced some tough questions, from “lol, why?” to “what will the ranks be?” and “what’s the official song?” and on that note, let’s talk uniforms.

And based on the new set photos, it looks like Netflix’s Space Force has done a better job at recruitment than the real thing, which has only two members.

Created by Greg Daniels and Carell (The Office), Space Force also stars Carell alongside John Malkovich, Ben Schwartz, Tawny Newsome, Diana Silvers, Jimmy O. Yang, Noah Emmerich, Fred Willard, and Jessica St. Clair, among others.
