The third season of The Orville titled “The Orville: New Horizons” concluded its 10 episode run last summer on Hulu in the United States and on Disney+ in the UK, Ireland and Canada. All three seasons of the epic space adventure series are also streaming now on Disney+ in the United States.
Since then, Disney has not officially announced if the show would return for a fourth season. Last August, during an interview with TV Line, Seth MacFarlane said that the chances for a Season 4 renewal were “50-50.” MacFarlane also added that streaming all three seasons on Disney+ might help its odds.
Now, in a recent interview with TV Line, Craig Erwich, President, ABC Entertainment, Hulu & Disney Branded Television Streaming Originals, addressed the show’s future.
“We don’t have anything to share right now,” Erwich revealed to the outlet. “It’s a great show and I know that the fans loved having it back in their lives. And Seth [MacFarlane] did a great job, uniquely as he can, in front of and behind the camera. But we don’t have anything to share right now.”
Set 400 years in the future, the series follows the adventures of The Orville, a mid-level exploratory spaceship. Its crew, both human and alien, face the wonders and dangers of outer space. In the new, third season, the crew of the U.S.S. Orville continue their mission of exploration, as they navigate both the mysteries of the universe and the complexities of their own interpersonal relationships.
The ensemble cast includes MacFarlane, Adrianne Palicki, Penny Johnson Jerald, Scott Grimes, Peter Macon, J Lee, Mark Jackson, Chad L. Coleman, Jessica Szohr and Anne Winters.
All three seasons of “The Orville” are produced by 20th Television and Fuzzy Door. The series was created and written by Seth MacFarlane. MacFarlane, Brannon Braga, David A. Goodman, Jon Cassar, Jason Clark and Howard Griffith serve as executive producers.
Seasons 1-3 of The Orville are available to stream on Hulu in the US and on Disney+ in the United States, UK, Ireland and Canada.
