Space Force Season 2 Age Appropriate Parents Guide
Let’s take a look at what parents need to know before letting their kids watch Space Force Season 2.
Language: Space Force Season 2 contains strong language, with profanity used throughout. Lookout words include: f*ck, sh*t, b*tch, a**h*le, d*mn, and more.
Mature Content: The series contains adult content that may not be appropriate for a younger audience. Characters frequently discuss sex, there is implied sex, and even in one particular scene where a character gives another a golden statue that is penis-shaped. The characters consume alcohol until intoxicated, smoke cigars and pot.
The first episode of Space Force Season 2 has the team answering questions from the Department of Defense because General Naird defied a direct order to attack China while on the moon’s Sea of Tranquility. It is evident in this first episode that Space Force Season 2 has a different overall “tone” than Season 1, which is most likely due to our current political climate and an administration change since the last season aired. Season 1 felt like a parody, a very close-to-reality parody of the previous presidential administration and the absurdity that unfolded over the course of four years. With an administration change this year and business in Washington, D.C. returning to normal, the series is being forced to adapt to these changes. Especially considering the real-life events that played out during the administration change, which no one wants to relive!
The next six episodes of Space Force Season 2 shy away from most of the politics surrounding Space Force and dive into more of the juicy details within the workplace and the characters’ personal lives. This is where creator Greg Daniels excels, having created The Office, which highlighted co-workers’ interactions in much of the same way. This new season has Angela struggling with her return from the moon and her and Chan figuring out their relationship (whatever that is). Erin is interviewing for college, Naird is dealing with a cut budget, and some members of the team are even considering big career changes. While much has changed at Space Force, there is one thing that remains the same: it stays consistent with bringing the laughs and ridiculousness.
The best thing about Space Force Season 2, and the previous season for that matter, is the talented cast of comedic geniuses and their rapport with each other. The series has always given each actor their time to shine, while also offering those important moments to banter with one another. One has to wonder how much of the series is actually scripted and how much improv is involved with this cast. Whatever it is, the result is pure greatness.
The biggest disappointment this season is that it seems to be cut short, with only seven episodes this time around instead of ten, most likely due to filming issues surrounding the pandemic. However, Space Force makes sure it isn’t forgotten with a cliffhanger ending that will have viewers demanding Season 3 ASAP. If this means that we can expect thirteen episodes next time around, it’s anyone’s guess, but if the quality remains the same or improves, I wouldn’t worry too much.
