  • “On June 18, 2018, the federal government announced the creation of a sixth major division of the United States armed forces.
  • “The goal of the new branch is ‘to defend satellites from attack’ and ‘perform other space-related tasks’ or something,” the trailer reads.
  • “This is the story of the men and women who have to figure it out.”

Watch the teaser trailer below.

Carell and “The Office” creator Greg Daniels created the show.

The Netflix series’ title is a direct reference to, well, the Space Force, the reported sixth military branch established by President Donald Trump.

The show arrives after months of speculation about a reboot of "The Office."
