         Seth MacFarlane’s hit space adventure series, THE ORVILLE, returns for more journeys into new worlds. Set 400 years in the future, the series follows The U.S.S. Orville, a mid-level exploratory spaceship. Its crew, both human and alien, face the wonders and dangers of outer space, while also dealing with the problems of everyday life.

          In the new season, the ship’s crew will meet never-before-seen aliens and face old adversaries, the Krill. They’ll make first contact with a new civilization and revisit the planet Moclus. ED (MacFarlane) and KELLY’s (Adrianne Palicki) relationship also will take a new turn – all of which points to a season filled with adventure, mystery, romance and, as always, some poignant social commentary.


          In second season premmiere episode, Ja'loja, the Orville heads towards Moclus for a unique ceremony, life aboard the ship heats up when Kelly gives Ed some startling news, Gordon enlists John's help with his dating life and Claire turns to Isaac for unlikely parenting advice.

          The ensemble series stars MacFarlane as the ship’s Captain, ED MERCER, and Adrianne Palicki as his ex-wife, who’s assigned as his First Officer. Additional cast members include Penny Johnson Jerald, Scott Grimes, Peter Macon, Halston Sage, J Lee, Mark Jackson, Chad L. Coleman and Jessica Szohr.
