Space Force, Netflix’s most popular comedy series to date, returns for a second season with Steve Carrell at the helm. Is there going to be the third season of this show? We’ll have to wait and see what season 3 has in store for us. Now, let’s see what we can find.
Originally published on February 21st, this piece has been continually updated to reflect new findings.
Netflix aired the second season of Space Force months after the first one had ended. Despite the fact that the first season was published in May of 2020, a renewal was not announced until November of that same year. Netflix premiered Season 2 on February 18, 2022, worldwide.
Space Force Season 3: Release Date
As of April 2022, we don’t know the answer to that billion-dollar question. Normally, Netflix gives shows a month before making a decision regarding their future on the service, evaluating renewals on the success of being there.
It’s unlikely that we’ll see the show again until at least early 2023 if we’re lucky if the third season goes forward.
However, given how abruptly Season 2 ended, there appears to be both the potential and the expectation that Greg Daniels, the show’s writer, will deliver on that promise.
How will the performance of Space Force Season 2 affect the upcoming Season 3?
For now, it’s highly improbable that the show will receive a third season renewal based on available viewing numbers. Approximately in the first month, Season 1 drew in 40 million subscribers; however, we can’t expect the same level of interest this time around.
The show’s top 10 hourly data indicates that it won’t be able to garner enough support for a second season.
Even though the show was introduced to Netflix with only two days left, it was qualified to be featured in the Top 10 charts for the week of February 14th through February 20th, but it failed to get over 11.04M hours of viewing time, putting it at number 10. A disappointing 12.32 million hours were seen in its first week in the top ten.
Who will return in Space Force Season 3?
You should expect everyone from the original cast to return if the show is revived because the already large ensemble hasn’t seen any major departures.
- Steve Carell as General Naird
- Diana Silvers as Erin Naird
- John Malkovich as Dr Mallory
- Ben Schwartz as Tony Scarapiducci
- Tawny Newsome as Andrea Ali
- Jimmy O Yang as Dr Chan
- Don Lake as Brad
- Patton Oswalt as Captain Lancaster
A character we’re not likely to see again is Maggie’s prison cellmate and ex-wife, Lisa Kudrow as Naird. Even though we still don’t know what Maggie did to get herself in jail, her appearance on the show was restricted to a few video chats.
What will be the storyline of Space Force Season 3?
So if Space Force returns, the plot will be simple: defend the world by stopping the asteroids.
Season two ended with Naird and his team discovering an enormous asteroid hurtling toward Earth, and the gang was left with little choice but to sing The Beach Boys ‘Kokomo’ in an attempt to maintain their composure.
Since it’s on a direct path to Earth, we now have to figure out a way to thwart it. It’s not a huge deal. Naird’s personal and professional lives are set to be put under considerably greater strain if things get worse for Angela and Chan.
When Erin graduates from high school, she’ll likely be on her own for the first time, while Captain Lancaster will likely be scratching his head over how he’s going to go back to Earth without going insane.
