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.
