The Orville Season 3: Release Date

MacFarlane earlier said that the show has evolved and become more ambitious production-wise. He further said that they won’t be able to cope with Fox for delivering the third season in later fall 2020. This is the reason the season moved from Fox to Hulu.
The COVID-19 pandemic, however, has disrupted the series’ schedule. So nothing can be said for certain as to when the upcoming is going to be out. But we can expect the third season to land in later 2021. The coronavirus pandemic has delayed The Orville’s next mission.

He said that this show means a lot to him is a huge priority for him and everyone else. He confirmed that there will be season 3 and they are going to complete is as soon as possible.
