After finally wrapping up production on its third season last month, The Orville is getting set to launch on its new streaming home in 2022. We have more details and the new teaser from Hulu.
The Orville arrives March 2022
After airing for two seasons on Fox, Seth MacFarlane’s homage to Star Trek: The Next Generation is moving to Hulu for what they are calling The Orville: New Horizons. This third season will arrive on Thursday, March 10, 2022, exclusively on Hulu in the USA. The rest of the 10-episode season will run weekly on Thursdays. There is no information yet on when it will arrive internationally, but TrekMovie has confirmed it will be available on Disney+ Star, which currently includes the first two seasons.
According to Hulu, The Orville: New Horizons “finds the crew of the U.S.S. Orville continuing their mission of exploration, as they navigate both the mysteries of the universe and the complexities of their own interpersonal relationships.”
Returning for season three are MacFarlane, along with Adrianne Palicki, Penny Johnson Jerald, Scott Grimes, Peter Macon, J. Lee, Mark Jackson, Chad L. Coleman, and Jessica Szohr. And Anne Winters joins the cast with a new character.
