THE ORVILLE is a live-action, one-hour, ensemble comedic drama set 400 years in the future that follows the adventures of The Orville, a mid-level exploratory spaceship, as its crew, both human and alien, face the wonders and dangers of outer space, while also dealing with the familiar, often humorous problems of everyday life. The series stars Seth MacFarlane as the ship's Commanding Officer and Adrianne Palicki as his ex-wife, who's assigned as his First Officer.
It was announced today that The Orville will be moving to Hulu for its upcoming third season. Creator Seth MacFarlane broke the news at the show's Comic-Con panel, stating that production changes for Season 3 would delay its release and that the streaming service would be a better fit for its schedule needs.
The hour-long space dramedy is coming off a strong creative sophomore run which helped strengthen its already-loyal fan base. Its mix of thought-provoking sci-fi story lines and witty humour have helped it carve out an underserved niche in the television landscape.
Look for Season 3 of The Orville to premiere on Hulu in late 2020.
