[ # ] The Orville flies from Fox to Hulu
July 20th, 2019 under Seth MacFarlane

Seth MacFarlane announced today that his live-action show The Orville will be moving from Fox to Hulu for its third season late next year.

The show creator explained, “My friends at the network understood what I was trying to do with this series, and they’ve done a spectacular job of marketing, launching and programming it for these past two seasons. But 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 the network.

“So we began to discuss how best to support the third season in a way that worked for the show. It’s exactly this kind of willingness to accommodate a show’s creative needs that’s made me want to stick around for so long. I am hugely indebted to Charlie Collier and FOX Entertainment for their generosity and look forward to developing future projects there. And to my new friends at Hulu, I look forward to our new partnership exploring the galaxy together.”

I think this is a good move for the show. There is so much more they can do on a streaming site than they can on broadcast. That and they will give him the time he needs to make this the best show possible. For example, he was editing the finale up until right before it aired. Not that it showed on air. Plus, I am assuming they can cuss now. Something a show like this needs every now and again.

When it comes to The Orville. I am not a fan of space shows like Star Trek. However, I love this show. It is the perfect mix of Sci-Fi, drama, heart and Seth MacFarlane. What more do you need?

When it comes to what will replace it, Fox has not said. I am sure a reality show, but you never know they still owe is Cosmos season 2.
