Seth MacFarlane’s ode to Star Trek, The Orville, is a fundamentally odd show, as we’ve highlighted several times when covering the show at Fox (formerly). One of its first scenes had an officer asking for the privilege to consume soda on the deck of a starship. On the other hand, it continues to be a vehicle for MacFarlane’s peculiar sense of humor. On the other hand, it aims to be a faithful spin on Star Trek, particularly from the Next Generation era.
Fans of the sci-fi comedy – drama series have been waiting for ages for its third season, which was postponed due to the COVID-19.
There will be a delay in the return of the cast of The Orville after their new adventure on Hulu. The Hulu premiere of Seth MacFarlane’s New Horizons, originally scheduled for March 10, has been postponed again. The show’s creator explains why and when the show will now air. It was confirmed by MacFarlane in a statement that the show will now be released on Thursday, June 2, and episodes will air on a weekly basis. MacFarlane acknowledged the fans’ frustration and gave a preview of Season 3’s first few minutes as well as the show’s new opening titles.
Jessica Szohr, Adrianne Palicki, Mark Jackson, Penny Johnson, Jerald Chad Coleman, J. Lee join MacFarlane in the cast. Scott Grimes, Peter Macon, and Anne Winters are among appearing casts too.
Isaac, a character played by Mark Jackson, surprised the crew of the Orville in the Season 3 opener by launching an unexpected attack on them as the ship was being attacked by the enemy.
