After a few months, Netflix renewed Space Force for a second season. The first season premiered in May 2020, however, it wasn’t renewed until November 2020. On February 18th, 2022, Netflix released Season 2 worldwide.
Is Space Force getting a third season on Netflix?
Netflix’s official renewal status is “Not yet Renewed.” There has been no decision on the future of Space Force at Netflix as of late February 2022, but if the season 2 conclusion is any indication, a season 3 is in the works.
Renewals are usually announced a month or two following the launch of new seasons of shows. We believe the show is in danger of being canceled because of how it was renewed for a second season, notably how it was given a budget cut and a new production site.
Season 2’s production was transferred from Los Angeles to Vancouver to save money, which resulted in a reshuffle in the writer’s room. Its episode count was likewise lowered from ten to seven. Season 1 may have fallen short of expectations due to the lesser budget, but rather than abandoning the series, it was given a second shot.
It’s unlikely that we’ll see the third episode unless the program can do more on that in a minute. One bright point for the series’ future is that the second season’s review consensus appears to be slightly better, despite the fact that there are fewer reviews at the time of publication.
On Netflix, how well is Space Force season 2 doing?
As previously indicated, a third season renewal would be determined by viewership, and based on current data, it’s exceedingly improbable that the show will be renewed. We can get a sense of how well the series is performing through various approaches, but we won’t have a complete picture until about the middle of March.
Season 1 had 40 million subscribers in its first month, but unfortunately, we won’t be seeing anything close to that this season. The show was eligible for inclusion in the Top 10 lists between February 14th and February 20th (it was added to Netflix with two days left), however, it fell short of the number 10 spot with 11.04 million hours viewed.
Season 3 of Space Force: What to Expect
Most of the characters are in the same place at the end of Season 2 as they were at the start of Season 2. The majority of the protagonists have chosen to remain in Space Force, having received pay raises and the branch’s future ensured.
Season 2 naturally finishes on a cliffhanger, with a large asteroid speeding towards Earth (the exact narrative of Netflix’s Don’t Look Up).
Thanks to the Hawaiin telescope going online, the entire crew discovers the asteroid. When the astronauts, scientists, and generals see the approaching asteroid and realize they’re going to die, they burst out in song (singing Kokomo by The Beach Boys), a throwback to season 1.
