Netflix’s Space Force season 2 begins shooting

General Naid and his crew are gearing up for a journey back to the moon as shooting begins for the second instalment of Netflix’s Space Force.

Confirming the news, actor Ben Schwartz posted a candid behind-the-scenes photo on his social media alongside the show’s ensemble cast from Canada, where the shooting is currently underway. Both Ben Schwartz and Tawny Newsome have shared pictures alongside Diana Silvers, Jimmy O Yang and Don Lake from the set.

The first season of Space Force premiered on the streaming platform on May 29, 2020. Despite receiving mixed reviews, the show remained popular with viewers with Netflix officially renewing the series in November last year.

Created by Steve Carell and The Office (US) creator Greg Daniels, Space Force is a workplace comedy-drama series that follows the multi-faceted crew of people tasked with establishing the sixth branch of the United States Armed Forces, the United States Space Force. It showcases the efforts of General Mark Naird to get “boots on the moon” by 2024, as per the US President’s orders.

For Season 2, Norm Hiscock who worked with Daniels on shows like Parks and Recreation and King of the Hill has joined the crew as co-showrunner. In addition to Carell and the existing cast, John Malkovich is also expected to return for the show’s second outing.

“Yeah, John Malkovich is very funny. I mean, he’ll just do it,” Daniels commented on Malkovich’s role in an interview. “That’s not the primary thing that he’s known for. But if you look at some of the Coen Brothers stuff like Burn After Reading, he’s quite funny. And he’s very funny in this, I mean, what a treat to get him involved. It’s awesome.”
