Every time I see this thread bumped I fear that an announcement of the show's cancellation is what did it so nice to see season 3 is happening.

That's fine, but Orville isn't adding anything new or even interesting and the actors aren't enough to carry the same basic stories we've seen a million times.
I disagree with that. Compare the human dates a robot stories of TNG and Orville. Are they really the same story? Not even close and Orville has a completely different outcome.

Oh Im so relieved. I really wasn't ready to lose this show. Hopefully they don't slash the budget too much.

The outcome was that his relationship with the humans is what made him change his mind, hardly new or original and they just completely ignored any fall out afterwords with the exception of some throw away line by the Dr. Yeah they changed it up but lead nowhere interesting (at least to me) Also they need to flesh out their other characters, enough Bortus and Moclans.

All I know is if Seth wants to write that episode where he sings a duet with Scott Bakula/Avery Brooks, Season 3 is the best time to do it. I pretty much doubt Season 4 will happen unless Disney want to put this on their streaming service with Star Wars.

Glad it’s renewed - it was the one I was concerned about most. This show is scratching all those TNG itches.

Season 2 showed us what the show can be without the cringey forced humour. Hopefully they can manage to push the envelope even further in season 3.

Between this and The Expanse I am so psyched.

Really hope they don't reduce the budget. With a lower budget we'd never have gotten stuff like the huge battle in the Identity two parter.

Apparently Scott Grimes and Adrianne Palicki were married yesterday, shows how much I pay attention to this stuff, didn't even know they were together.

Hmmm. Isn’t this bad?

I guess it’s better than not having the show. But it might only be like 10 episodes each season?
Hard to say but it doesn't look good. The renewal notice for Orville came very late and it was on the border for being canceled if I'm remembering correctly. The move very likely could be to give it one more season. For those enjoying the show I hope it's a good one for you and maybe it does get picked up again.

I'm not going to lie though. The idea that this is now only on Hulu in the US I do find funny *sips tea* because of all the shit some tried to say regarding CBS All access and Star Trek Discovery and then Picard.

So Disney is putting a Disney owned show on a Disney owned service (Hulu). Why would there be any speculation about it being canceled? I mean I always assumed it would be likely moved to Hulu. Why would Disney keep it airing on Fox?

They probably wouldn't have the balls to do that with the Simpsons, though. Or maybe Fox (the network) would never let them. I figured this was bound to happen, but I figured it wouldn't happen until Fox cancelled it.

Because despite those factors you can still make money by selling shows to broadcast/cable.

It’s not like the show wasn’t streaming on Hulu already

I love the move to Hulu. Now we might get all episodes at once, and not have to wait for months to complete the season.

The show on FOX I think was already kinda doomed and doubt a S4 would have happened, if anything the move to Hulu can help it keep going as Hulu needs more original programming.

Hulu could be great or disastrous for Orville. I honestly don't know how many people will follow from fox to Hulu, if someone doesn't have Hulu I don't see them buying it just for Orville, and people could have already seen it on Hulu to begin with. So we'll see, but it's not a great sign. Is it still on cable internationally? That's important too

I bought Hulu just for One Punch Man, and Season 2 was a trash fire. I'd be happy to re-subscribe (assuming I drop my subscription at some point, currently still maintaining for some anime and Handmaid's Tale) for actual quality content!
