Space Force was a strange addition to Netflix at the time, as the series was fast-tracked in reaction to Donald Trump‘s plans for a space exploration branch of the army was announced. Instantly, Steve Carrell and some The Office creator Greg Daniels jumped at the occasion to mock the concept with a series. They even managed to replicate elements from the project and get the name out before it was an actual reality. Sadly, it seems that the comedy series is coming to an end as Netflix has canceled it after two seasons.
Carell played General Mark Naird, who was stuck with the new administration alongside an all-star cast that consisted of Diana Silvers, John Malkovich, Ben Schwartz, Lisa Kudrow, and many more. Daniels and Norm Hiscock were the active showrunners on the series’ first and now only two seasons.
Netflix has once again been on a cancel spree, as they also recently canceled the popular Raising Dion series, which also only managed to pull in up to two seasons. Cowboy Bebop, which was produced with multiple seasons in mind, didn’t even make it to a second one. They have new projects already in development, but their current trajectory, adds to an ongoing issue with the subscription service. If they don’t let their newest series get more than two seasons, they may continue losing people that joined for those specific offerings.
