The Orville, A Summary
Seth McFarlane, creator and main character for The Orville, took inspiration from several shows including Star Trek and The Twilight Zone. Seth McFarlane plays the role of Ed Mercer, a divorcé who commands the titular ship. Set 400 years into the future, their job is to embark not only on diplomatic missions but also includes expeditions, explorations, etc.
This proves to be a challenge as he finds out that his traitorous ex-wife, whom he found in bed with an alien, is now his first officer. Talk about drama. A not-so-advanced ship with a bunch of co-workers flooded with problems. This sci-fi comedic drama aims to go where no sci-fi comedic drama has gone before.
Season 2: Missions, and Epic Adventures
The same cast ensemble is set to play their respective parts in the series. Adrianne Palicki as Commander Kelly Grayson who is Mercer’s ex-wife, and first officer. Peter Macon as Lieutenant Commander Bortus, Penny Johnson Jerald as Dr. Claire Finn, Scott Grimes as Lieutenant Gordon Malloy.
Additional cast members will play the roles of lieutenant and lieutenant commander. Halston Sage is set to play the role of Lt. Alara Kitan. In addition to that, J. Lee takes on the role of Lieutenant Commander John LaMarr. Other than that, no further details are known about Mark Jackson who plays Isaac.
The show will also include Star Trek veterans Robert Picardo and Marina Sirtis as guest stars. As a matter of fact, Star Trek: The Next Generation‘s Jonathan Frakes will direct an episode in this season as well.
The Orville is set to premiere Sunday, December 30, on Fox. It may contain 14 episodes, which is not so bad since they’d rather make it short than make filler episodes. In summary, the audience will receive wholesome episodes as the show reaches another level.
