‘The Orville: New Horizons’ Gets New Trailer & June Premiere On Disney+ UK
After a long, long wait, Seth MacFarlane’s epic space adventure returns for Season 3, now titled ‘The Orville: New Horizons‘.
The epic space adventure series is set 400 years in the future and follows 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.
The ensemble series stars MacFarlane as the ship’s Commanding Officer and Adrianne Palicki (‘Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’, ‘Friday Night Lights’) as his ex-wife, who’s assigned as his First Officer. The series also stars Penny Johnson Jerald as Dr. Claire Finn (’24,’ ‘The Larry Sanders Show’), Scott Grimes as Gordon Malloy (‘ER,’ ‘Justified’), Peter Macon as Bortus (‘Shameless,’ ‘Bosch’), Jessica Szohr as Talla Keyali (‘Shameless’, ‘Kingdom’), J. Lee as John LaMarr (‘Family Guy’, ‘The Cleveland Show’), Mark Jackson as Isaac (‘That Royal Today’), and Chad L. Coleman as Klyden (‘The Walking Dead,’ ‘The Wire’).
Joining the cast for Season 3 are Anne Winters (’13 Reasons Why’, ‘Tyrant’) as Ensign Charly Burke, along with Eliza Taylor (‘The 100’), Bruce Boxleitner (‘Babylon 5’), and the late Lisa Banes (‘Royal Pains’, ‘Nashville’) who appear in guest roles.
‘The Orville’ has had a bit of a turbulent flight to its 3rd Season. Firstly, there was the obvious issue of a global pandemic, which is hard to film in, especially when you’re a show dealing with a lot of prosthetics that require close contact. The second was the “more ambitious” nature of the third season, and MacFarlane’s workload, which prompted Disney to move the show from FOX onto Hulu. For UK viewers, the series will appear on Disney+.
‘The Orville: New Horizons’ is 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.
‘The Orville: New Horizons‘ (Season 3) premieres Thursday, June 2, 2022, on Disney+ in the UK & Ireland, and Hulu in the USA.
