Seth MacFarlane’s epic space adventure series “The Orville” returns next year exclusively as a Hulu original series. Set 400 years in the future, “The Orville: New Horizons” finds the crew of the U.S.S. Orville continuing their mission of exploration, as they navigate both the mysteries of the universe and the complexities of their own interpersonal relationships.
TV Line has shared a first look image from “The Orville: New Horizons” which shows returning and new cast members on the new bridge tech upgrade. The photo has Capt. Ed Mercer (played by series creator Seth MacFarlane), Cmdr. Kelly Grayson (Adrianne Palicki) and Lt.

The three new faces include new series regular Anne Winters (13 Reasons Why, Tyrant) as Ensign Charly Burke, while Bruce Boxleitner (Babylon 5) and the late Lisa Banes (Royal Pains, Nashville) guest-star as President Alcuzan and Senator Balask.
