The Orville Season 3: The third season of the comedy-drama science fiction series, The Orville, is confirmed to air this 2022 on Hulu. The past two seasons were aired on Fox, which means this will be the first season airing on Hulu.
The Orville is set on the titular spacecraft USS Orville a mid-level exploratory vessel in the Planetary Union, a 25th-century interstellar alliance of Earth and many other planets. The series consists of the crew’s adventures they encounter on the ship, usually involving planet exploration and visits to various parts of the galaxy.
How exciting is that? This is why fans cannot wait for another season.
Here’s what we know so far about The Orville Season 3.
The Orville Season 3 Release Date
It’s already been two years since the second season of The Orville ended, and fans have been left wondering what the future holds for the sci-fi comedy show.
The original date was actually moved to a later date because they already started as early as 2019 to film season 3. However, because of the COVID-19 Pandemic, only half of the scenes were finished. In an interview, Seth MacFarlane even mentioned jokingly, “One episode is going to be such that between one scene to the next, people are suddenly going to gain 20 pounds and have long white beards,” caused by the shutdown of the productions.
Luckily, they have already set the final and official date this June 2, 2022. The fans will be able to see the series back on the small screen soon!
The announcement about the renewal was announced on Twitter by MacFarlane alongside a link to a four-minute video of the new season.
“As occasionally happens, our show has been repositioned amidst the ever-changing television schedule landscape, which means that the wait will be longer. We’re now preparing for a June 2 launch on Hulu,” a part of his tweet said.

The Orville Season 3 Teaser
Together with the tweet, a four-minute video teaser was released to give us a sneak peek of what is bound to happen in The Orville Season 3.
Check it out here!
The teaser opens on a chaotic space battle that feels like Star Wars down to the John Williams-Esque score with its tense horns and strings.
Dozens of ships are engaged in a fight above the surface of a giant asteroid or moon, with lasers flying every way. One Planetary Union ship crashes in a spectacular explosion, and then the Orville itself is hit.
We can also see Marcus Finn inside the Orville desperately running through the burning corridors of the ship, narrowly escaping death multiple times as it crumbles and explodes.
After he makes it through his quarters, Isaac the robot enters the room, then the android’s eyes turn red before he unleashes a terrifying screech, baring a maw of hideously sharp teeth.
