Steve Carell confirms new Netflix show following Space Force axe

The Office star Steve Carell has joined forces with Mean Girls' Tina Fey for the new Netflix comedy The Four Seasons.

Announced today (April 24) via Netflix's X/Twitter, the eight-part series will be based on the 1981 film of the same name.

The movie follows the story of three married couples who go on vacation together each season of the year. However, the couples' holiday bliss is disrupted when one of the husbands leaves his wife for a younger woman, making their subsequent trips much more awkward.

Fey will also be serving as co-creator on the series alongside Lang Fisher and Tracey Wigfield, who she previously worked with on 30 Rock. Further casting details are yet to be announced.

The actor is probably best known for his role as Michael Scott in the long-running comedy series The Office US, a role which saw him nominated for multiple Emmy and Golden Globe Awards.
