According to u2songs:

The U2 show is not expected to air on the streaming service anytime soon, and is indeed a few years away. It is being developed to fill a gap on the streaming service when The Crown is finished. It will follow a similar timeline development of that series as well, with each season devoted to a decade of time in U2ís lives. The first season will take them from forming a band, up until the recording of The Joshua Tree, covering the Innocence period. The second series will deal with The Joshua Tree and take the band into the 1990s, or their Experience period. A third season would see them releasing Pop and following the band through the successes of How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb. At this time three seasons are being developed, although the contracts leave the option open to expand to additional seasons later.

Each season is expected to cast new actors for main roles in the show as The Crown has for main characters. Itís likely youíll see different actors playing a young Bono vs an older Bono as the show progresses. The show is expected to be broken into 10 hour seasons, and episodes may vary in length.

JJ Abrams is the executive producer of the project and is working with writer Anthony McCarten on scripts. U2 is involved in the project, and will be consulting on the project.McCarten is the writer of the recent Bohemian Rhapsody movie, looking at the history of Queen.

The Crown is currently set to have two more seasons, so it may be 2024 before we see this series appear at Netflix.

JJ Abrams is usually someone who delivers quality, so this could work.

Very mixed feelings about him in both the Star Trek and Star Wars communities.

I like the idea of the structure of this. Probably won't watch it, though. Not big on the whole music biopic thing.

This is good news. I am not familiar with the work of this director. I haven't watched his Star Trek or Star Wars but I will.

Ok, if you want to sample JJ's ST ans SW work you want the 2009 Star Trek reboot and then ST Into Darkness.  For SW you want The Force Awakens and The Rise of Skywalker.  (I enjoy them all myself, but there are those that think they are abominations to the origin stories)

Thanks. Star Trek 2009 and The Force Awakens have good ratings on IMDb so they can't be too bad. I guess it's hard for some people to imagine Star Wars without George Lucas.

he's the guy that puts a Beastie Boys song into every Star Trek film, made Kirk a frat boy and Sulu gay  to honor George Takei even though it was against Takei's wishes because as he said- the character isn't gay.

I thought Kirk really got the swag right.

But letís hope they get Bonoís swag right. Itís a very particular swag.

I'd much prefer a documentary something bit like the recent Beatles let it be thing  but it sounds pretty exciting
