The Orville is an American Science fiction comedy-drama TV show that is inspired by sci-fi movies, mainly Star Trek and Next-generation. The show features at Hulu and follows the crew of the starship, USS Orville, in their space adventures for all sorts.
And since all of us like a good scientific plot and space fiction, The Orville reaches the benchmark of our expectations. The show is set on the titular USS Orville (ECV-197), a mid-level exploratory space vessel in the Planetary Union, a 25th-century interstellar alliance of Earth and many other planets.
The Orville is a joint production by 20th Century Fox Television and Fuzzy Door Productions.
The show has already completed two successful seasons between 2017-2019 and Hulu has already announced for a third season in late 2020, much to the fan’s excitement!
Season 3 release date:
Hulu has not explicitly released any release date for season 3 yet and neither have they given us any teaser for the same. So by judging from previous patterns, season 3 can be expected very well within 2020 or near the end of it, marking the holiday season.
What would be the cast for season 3?
The following cast would return for season 3, and new characters and faces would definitely join in for the new season!
- Seth MacFarlane
- Adrianne Palicki
- Penny Johnson Jerald
- Scott Grimes
- Peter Macon
- Halston Sage
- J. Lee

Extra details and updates:
It was in a recent interview given by the creator, Seth MacFarlane where he expressed what he has in mind for The Orville and its future,
“Orville has been a labor of love for me, and there are two companies which have supported that vision in a big way: 20th Century Fox Television, where I’ve had a deal since the start of my career, and FOX Broadcasting Company, now FOX Entertainment, which has been my broadcast home for over 20 years. My friends at the network understood what I was trying to do with this series, and they’ve done a spectacular job of marketing, launching and programming it for these past two seasons. But as the show has evolved and become more ambitious production-wise, I determined that I would not be able to deliver episodes until 2020, which would be challenging for the network. So we began to discuss how best to support the third season in a way that worked for the show. It’s exactly this kind of willingness to accommodate a show’s creative needs that’s made me want to stick around for so long. I am hugely indebted to Charlie Collier and FOX Entertainment for their generosity and look forward to developing future projects there. And to my new friends at Hulu, I look forward to our new partnership exploring the galaxy together”
