The Orville is currently in the middle of its third season. The sci-fi series from Seth MacFarlane is currently streaming on Hulu. This is the first season for the series, which is now known as The Orville: New Horizons since its parent company was purchased by Disney.
In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, creator Seth MacFarlane discussed this season and his hope for the future of the show as well. At this point, there has been no decision made about the future of the show. However, MacFarlane indicated that both he and the cast would be happy to continue.
“I would love it. I know the entire cast is hoping for it. It’s a big question mark for a lot of reasons. It’s not an inexpensive show to produce. It requires an ambitious budget. But the flip side of that is, it’s no more ambitious than half the other streaming shows on television. It really is gonna depend on audience response, on whether the show gets discovered. I still think there are a lot of people who just don’t know that we’re out there and don’t really quite know what we are. And when people sit down and watch the show, they’re almost always surprised, and it almost always upends their expectations. Probably because it’s me (laughs), probably because most of what I’ve done in the past has been very different, but it’s dependent on audience response. At the end of the day, it’s a business. It’s dependent on whether we’re worth something to Disney and to the platform that we’re on.”Seth MacFarlane
At the end of the day, it will all depend on how The Orville: New Horizons performs on Hulu and what Disney executives think about the show as well. The show currently releases new episodes on Hulu on Thursdays.
