The Orville, the sci-fi Seth MacFarlane Star Trek/spoof show is jumping from FOX to Hulu this June for new and hilarious adventures. The COVID pandemic grounded the series after its season two finale all the way back in 2019. Series creator Seth MacFarlane is back at the helm as Captain Ed Mercer alongside Adrianne Palicki as Commander Kelly Grayson and Scott Grimes as Lt. Gordon Malloy.
Set 400 years in the future, The Orville: New Horizons sees the gang continue to navigate both the mysteries of the universe and the complexities of their own interpersonal relationships.
In the trailer for The Orville: New Horizons, which EW can exclusively reveal above, it looks like the space travelers are making their way through some dangerous territory — “do not expect us to save you,” one particularly intimidating alien warns Mercer and Grayson. But you know what? “Everything forbidden is sweet,” says Penny Johnson Jerald’s Dr. Claire Finn, so bring it on — our sweet tooth’s talkin’.
