The sci-fi dramedy will continue in 2019-2020.
May 11, 2019
Fox announced today that The Orville has been picked up for a third season. Created by Family Guy's Seth MacFarlane, the hour-long space dramedy continued to have a solid presence during its sophomore run, both creatively and ratings-wise. Known for its mix of thought-provoking sci-fi story lines and witty humour, the series is amassing quite the loyal fanbase.
Taking inspiration from Star Trek, The Orville takes place 400 years in the future, when Earth is just a small part of an advanced and mostly-peaceful Planetary Union. The U.S.S. Orville is a mid-level exploratory vessel with a human and alien crew led by rookie officer Ed Mercer, who is played by MacFarlane. Determined to prove his worth despite his First Officer being his ex-wife, Ed leads his crew as they face the wonders and dangers of outer space, while also dealing with the familiar workplace problems.
Look for Season 3 of The Orville during the 2019-2020 season.

Hey, FOX got something right! This parody of Star Trek is so amazing and funny! I love it! Hope it remains on air for many years.

It's sad this is what passes for SF on broadcast TV these days. Too many of the plots are derivative of Star Trek. It's like MacFarlane just wanted to prove he could do it better.
