The streamer announced Thursday that the former Fox series will launch its third season on Thursday, March 2022.
As a result, the series will be returning almost three years after its previous season concluded on Fox.
Returning cast for the third season includes series creator/Orville captain Seth MacFarlane, Adrianne Palicki, Jessica Szohr, Penny Johnson Jerald, Scott Grimes, Peter Macon, J. Lee, Mark Jackson, and Chad L. Coleman.
New additions for The Orville Season 3 include Eliza Taylor (The 100) and Anne Winters (13 Reasons Why).
The series was initially set for a 2020 bow, but like many shows, the pandemic scuppered production.
“As the show has evolved and become more ambitious production-wise, I determined that I would not be able to deliver episodes until 2020, which would be challenging for [Fox],” Seth MacFarlane said when the delay was announced.
