The Orville Has Been Renewed for a Third Season

By Julie Muncy on at

Seth MacFarlane’s loving Star Trek pastiche is sticking around a bit longer.

The Orville, a sci-fi spacefaring series set 400 years in the future with a vibe that’s heavy on the old-school Roddenberry (with less of MacFarlane’s humour than you’d imagine), has been renewed for a third season, Variety reports.

The series, which also stars Adrianne Palicki, Penny Johnson Jerald, and Scott Grimes, will be returning to Fox for its third season, set to air, presumably, this autumn.
