The Orville is an American sci-fi comedy-drama series. It is created and starred Seth MacFarlane. The series follows Ed Mercer, an officer of the Planetary Union’s division of space exploratory vessels in the 25th century. The show’s main inspiration comes from Star Trek and its successor. It parodies both and pays heavy homage to them. The show follows the crew of USS Orville, a starship, and their adventures. The Orville is a mid-level exploratory vessel of the Planetary Union, which happens to be an international alliance of Earth and many planets in the 25th Century.
Time and Where to Watch it?

What it’s About?
In the February of 2022, we go a little sneak peek into The Orville: New Horizons, in the form of the first few minutes of the first episode. It happens to take us to the center of an intense space battle. A lot of flashing lasers and the blaring of horns and strings gives us the high-octane atmosphere of battle. We see Finn maneuvering around the crumbling ship to find his younger brother, Ty. As they watch the Planetary Union ship go down, they’re met by the Kaylon android Isaac. But Isaac isn’t himself. When they call him, his blue eyes turn red and he unleashes a menacing screech.
We also got a trailer in May this year. But the trailer fails to give us any more information about the sneak peek. Unlike the sneak peek, the trailer focuses more on dialog in dramatic and comedic bits of characters. The question that everyone is asking though is, how will the move from Fox to Hulu and the pandemic affect the series? Will it maintain its former standard? The answers to these can only be found in the series.
The Orville: New Horizons will see Seth MacFarlane continue to play Captain Ed Mercer, Adrianne Palicki as Commander Kelly Grayson, Penny Johnson Jerald as Doctor Claire Finn, Scott Grimes as Lieutenant Gordon Malloy, Peter Macon playing Lieutenant Bortus, Halston Sage as Lieutenant Alara space-ageKitan, Lee as Lieutenant John Lamar, Mark Jackson as Isaac, Norm Macdonald Yaphit, Jessica Szohr as Lieutenant TallaKeyali and Anne Winters as Charly Burke.
Is It Worth Watching?
While the first two seasons were great, with the move to Hulu the fate of the third season remains questionable. The storyline line however seems to hold up to the thrilling adventures and the trailer and sneak peek give us a Star Warsesque vibe. If it involves dogfighting fighting in space and flashy lasers, and that sort of stuff is for you this show is a must-watch. A lot of character development and a lot of individuals-watches are dealt with in each episode, it is the perfect watch for a space-age fan.
