Space Force season 2 trailer teases mayhem on Earth, in space

“Whatever happens on the moon, stays on the moon!” Last season on Netflix‘s Space Force, Steve Carell’s Gen. Mark R. Naird did everything he could to keep the space race with China from becoming a full-blown war. However, the tension has ramped up in the first trailer for Space Force 2.

In the clip below, Mark faces a congressional committee about his position as Space Force’s Chief of Space Operations. There’s also a new administration in power, and it isn’t sure if Space Force should simply abandon its mission. If Mark can’t whip Space Force into shape in just a few months, then he will be stripped of his command.

While the personal stakes are high for Mark, he still has a remarkable knack for getting himself in awkward situations. And there will be plenty of comedic moments between the characters, both in space and on Earth. The trailer also spends some time on the burgeoning romantic relationship between Captain Angela and Dr. Chan Kaifang.

The trailer also reveals that Patton Oswalt plays a role this season as an astronaut in space on an extended mission. How his storyline intersects with the rest of the narrative isn’t explicitly revealed, but Oswalt’s presence is always welcome in a Greg Daniels comedy. His Parks & Recreation guest appearance was memorable, and accurately sums up nerd culture in the span of a few minutes.

John Malkovich also stars in the series as Dr. Adrian Mallory, with Ben Schwartz as F. Tony Scarapiducci, Diana Silvers as Erin Naird, Tawny Newsome as Capt. Angela Ali, Jimmy O. Yang as Kaifang, and Don Lake as Brig. Gen. Bradley Gregory. The series was created by Carell and Daniels, both of whom famously teamed on the American version of The Office.

Return To Space trailer takes viewers inside NASA and SpaceX
return to space netflix trailer

Elon Musk can be a very divisive individual, especially when it comes to his social media posts. But his company, SpaceX, is one of NASA's most important collaborators in the ongoing exploration of outer space. Now, the partnership between NASA and SpaceX will be explored in Return To Space, a new documentary coming to Netflix next month.

In the trailer, Musk is given a few aspirational moments that kind of gloss over his rougher edges. But he is adamant about at least one thing: Earth is humanity's cradle, and we can't stay here forever. We also don't live in a sci-fi world where traveling to other planets is commonplace. And the only way we will ever reach that potential is by the hard work of the people glimpsed in the trailer.

Bridgerton season 2 trailer hints at new romance and gossipIn the inaugural season of Netflix's breakout hit, Bridgerton, Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor) found true love. Now, it's her brother's turn in season 2, whether he wants to or not! In the new trailer for Bridgerton season 2, Anthony Bridgerton (Jonathan Bailey) becomes the most eligible bachelor of the social season, thanks to meddling from his mother. Among the ladies, he's quite a catch. But what they don't know is that Anthony has no intention of marrying for love. It's simply something that he has to do for familial reasons.

That's why Kate Sharma (Simone Ashley) is so alarmed at the apparent match between her sister, Edwina (Charithra Chandran), and Anthony. Kate wants her sister to have a husband who truly loves her, and that's not Anthony. As Kate attempts to prevent their marriage, she finds herself falling for Anthony. And the feeling is mutual. But if they act on those romantic impulses it may hurt Edwina far worse than anything else they could do.

There's also a glimpse of the romantic complications to come.

This season is based upon Julia Quinn’s second Bridgerton novel, The Viscount Who Loved Me. The focus this time is on the eldest Bridgerton son, Anthony (Jonathan Bailey). Last season, Anthony resolved to make a marriage pact without being hindered by love. As Netflix describes it, Anthony is searching for "a debutante who meets his impossible standards." And Anthony believes that he's found his match in Edwina Sharma (Charithra Chandran).
