The Orville Has a Season 2 Premiere Date!

Seth MacFarlane’s The Orville finally has a set season two premiere date on FOX. This comes as the new Sci-Fi show has been renewed, and it’s FOX contenders like Lucifer and The Exorcist have been cancelled.

The Orville will be coming back for season two on Sunday December 30th 2018. Jonathan Frakes, who starred and directed in Star Trek: The Next Generation will be working on this new season, and has thoughts on the series:

“The Star Trek that we have has really found its voice, and Discovery has really found its voice. And The Orville has filled in a void. For a lot of people, The Orville is their new Star Trekbecause it does tell stories like [The Next Generation], and it’s got wild humor in it.

[Seth MacFarlane] clearly wanted [The Orville] to look like [The Next Generation]. So, he hired the cinematographer [Marvin Rush] and the camera operator, and Brannon Braga, who wrote First Contact among other things that are fabulous. Robbie Duncan McNeill, one of our wonderful directors from Voyager, James Conway, who directed a bunch of great Next Gen episodes; he hired me. He filled the room with Next Gen people so that the show would look and feel like it. I think he did it.”

While we can’t wait for The Orville to return, we honestly think MacFarlane tricked FOX. As the creator of Family Guy, the first few episodes had that silly humor, but as it developed, it felt more like a campy Star Trek series and less like Family Guy.

We’ll keep you informed on all details regarding The Orville.
