For millions of people, choosing a new series to stream goes something like this: Log onto Netflix determined to find a new show in which to immerse yourself; spend 30 minutes scrolling through dozens of titles you've been meaning to watch; then end up turning on your favorite episode of The Office for the 200th time. If this sounds like your usual Friday night in quarantine, you are absolutely not alone. But now, a new series is coming that you might not be able to pass up—and it has major connections to The Office.
Fans of Steve Carell (who, of course, played Dunder Mifflin boss Michael Scott) have been looking forward to Space Force, Carell's new show with The Office creator Greg Daniels, for months now. Today, just ahead of its debut later this month, the streaming service released the first official teaser for the series.
Carell will star in the new comedy alongside such big-name celebrities as Lisa Kudrow, John Malkovich, and Ben Schwartz. Though they're a far ride away from Scranton, Pennsylvania, it looks like Carell will be taking on another leadership role in the series, which is believed to be a spoof on Donald Trump's military branch of the same name. Here's hoping his character is at least a bit more respected than Michael Scott.
Space Force hits Netflix on May 29.
