Seth MacFarlane’s sci-if comedy, The Orville, is coming back for a third season. And unlike the previous two seasons which were on Fox, this season is making its way to Hulu. (As both Fox and Hulu are under the same corporate umbrella these days). The move was first announced in 2019, but COVID wound up pushing everything back.
Now re-dubbed The Orville: New Horizons, the series is MacFarlane’s homage to Star Trek. The show takes place on The U.S.S. Orville and features a blend of human and alien life forms. And we also got our first look at the new season with a new trailer.
Last week, in the wake of the passing of one of the show’s stars Norm Macdonald, it was announced that he had already pre-recorded episodes of the show before they wrapped in August. So more Norm as the blob Yaphit is also on the way!
