Space Force Canceled After Two Seasons at Netflix

Steve Carell’s “Space Force” has been canceled after two seasons at Netflix, Variety has learned.

The second season of the comedy, which is a re-team between Carell and “The Office” creator Greg Daniels, debuted Feb. 18. “Space Force” Season 2 picks up with General Mark Naird (Carell) and his underdog team having to prove their worth to a new administration while dealing with interpersonal challenges.

Along with Carell, “Space Force” starred series regulars John Malkovich, Ben Schwartz, Tawny Newsome, Diana Silvers, Jimmy O. Yang and Don Lake. Additionally, Lisa Kudrow played Naird’s wife, Maggie Naird, in the show’s first season, which also featured the late Fred Willard as his father.

Daniels and Norm Hiscock served as co-showrunners on “Space Force.” The show was executive produced by Daniels, Carell, Hiscock, Howard Klein, Brent Forrester and Ken Kwapis.

“Space Force” premiered its 10-episode first season in May 2020. The show was cut down to seven episodes for its second season.

While “Space Force” has been scrapped by Netflix, the streaming service has other projects in the works from executive producer Daniels, including animated comedies “Bad Crimes” and “Exploding Kittens.”

Deadline first reported the new “Space Force” cancellation news.
