One of the biggest blows to Netflix’s dominance of the streaming industry will be the upcoming loss of beloved workplace sitcom The Office. The series is set to jump to Peacock, NBC’s streaming service — but not before Netflix debuts what will hopefully be its replacement.

Space Force, a new series co-created by Steve Carell and The Office creator Greg Daniels, will debut on Netflix on May 29. The series stars Carell as Mark Naird, a general who ends up in charge of the United States Space Force, whose objective is getting “boots on the moon.” John Malkovich co-stars as Dr. Adrian Mallory, the head scientist on the project, with Ben Schwartz as social media manager F. Tony Scarapiducci, and Diana Silvers as Naird’s daughter.

The official trailer showcases the chaos in store, including Scarapiducci’s mandate of “no uggos” in space, Mallory and Naird butting heads, and an ape and a dog playing catch in zero gravity.
