FOX Renews Seth MacFarlane's 'The Orville' For Second Season”

Seth MacFarlane and Adrianne Palicki star in Fox's 'The Orville, ' which has been picked up for a second season.

The Orville is this fall's first freshman series on the Big 5 broadcast networks to earn a second-season renewal. (Streaming service CBS All Access has renewed "Star Trek: Discovery", which had its premiere on the broadcast network.) FOX is keeping the episode count at 13 for "The Orville" this season, with the length of Season 2 yet to be determined.

"Once again Seth has struck a powerful chord with viewers", said Fox's entertainment president Michael Thorn.

Orville's early premiere, on September 10, was Fox's most-watched since the 2015 debut of Empire, with streaming counted. "He has delivered a series full of optimism, drama and his trademark humor".

Are you excited to see more of The Orville?

FOX will announce a season 2 premiere date after the show goes back into production.

While The Orville's ratings expectedly slipped when it moved into its regular Thursday slot, the series hung in and last week posted Thursday L+SD highs in both 18-49 (1.2) and total viewers (4.2 million). Since then viewers have dropped away slightly, but The Orville still ranks among the top three new dramas of the Stateside Fall season. A new episode airs tonight.

Produced by 20th Century Fox Television, "The Orville" is executive produced by MacFarlane, Brannon Braga ("Terra Nova"), David A. Goodman ("Family Guy"), Jason Clark ("Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey", "Ted") and Liz Heldens ("Mercy", "Deception").

Seth MacFarlane's space adventures will continue for another year. Jon Favreau ("The Jungle Book", "Iron Man") directed the series premiere episode.
