Seth MacFarlane‘s The Orville The series has been a lot of fun over the course of two seasons, and after a long hiatus, Season 3 is finally coming to Hulu this summer. However, the future of the series beyond that is uncertain.
This is a passion project for MacFarlane who writes, directs, produces and stars the sci-fi comedy series. It’s a lot of work and at the moment there are no plans for a fourth season. It’s also reported that the show’s cast was released back in August when their options ran out, meaning they won’t be keeping their time open to come back. They take jobs off to do other things, and so does Macfarlane.
Apparently, Macfarlane has turned his attention to other projects he has in development as part of his big deal with NBCUniversal. Those projects include the upcoming Peacock series ted, where he will reprise his role as Ted. He is also developing a serial adaptation of the time travel love story All our wrong deedsa WWII limited series titled the winds of war, and more.
Now while there are currently no plans to proceed The Orville series, “the door has been left open for MacFarlane to revisit with a new installment if/if he wishes to do so in the future. If he chooses to do so, the cast will have to be reshuffled and new business done.”
So at this point we’ll just have to wait and see what happens. Maybe one day The Orville will be back, but there’s also a chance Season 3 could be the last.
Season 3 of The Orville debuts June 2nd.
