has The Office
available in its library, but what it really would like--as would literally every other network and streaming site on the planet--is to have its own version of the wildly popular show. That dream looks like it will soon be a reality, after Netflix announced
a spiritual workplace sequel to the beloved NBC series. The new series will see Steve Carell
reunite with The Office
co-creator Greg Daniels, and if you thought things could get wild at Dunder Mifflin, that's nothing compared to the premise of the new show. LikeÂ The Office
, it will be about co-workers on the job, but they're working at one of the strangest, silliest, and most absurd real-life ideas in recent memory: the Space Force.On today's episode of Nerdist News
, host Jessica Chobot shoots for the stars...but instead ends up behind the desk with the people tasked with implementing the president's concept for a sixth branch of the military known as the Space Force. The teaser announcing the series, which also marks Steve Carell's return to television, said their job will be to "defend satellites from attack and perform other space-related tasks...or something."
