*Production of The Orville season 3 has been impacted by the global COVID-19 pandemic*
Seth MacFarlane, creator, writer and star of popular futuristic comedy The Orville, chose a blue way to react to the renewal of his sci-fi show:
MacFarlane’s tweet is a parody of Constance Wu’s none too happy reaction to her show, Fresh Off the Boat being picked up for its sixth season. But the show’s producer and editor, Tom Constantino was less cheeky in celebrating the news, throwing fans back to the sweet moves of Bortus (Peter Macon) and Klyden (Chad Coleman):
The Orville is set 400 years into the future and follows the challenges faced by the human and alien crew of the USS Orville. It’s built a loyal following both here and in the US since first appearing on screens, also inspiring a number of podcasts, including SBS VICELAND’s own Orvilleland.
In the season finale of ORVILLELAND, the podcast crew dive deep on the final two episodes of the second season of The Orville. With time paradoxes aplenty, the team try to make sense of it all without being plunged into alternate 1985.
