Seth McFarlane Offers Hopeful The Orville Season 3 Update

We already know that The Orville has been renewed for Season 3. However, we still don't know when we'll actually get to see it. Luckily, Seth McFarlane has just offered a hopeful update on when the third season will actually begin production.

McFarlane recently took part in The Orville co-star Jessia Szohr's Instagram Q&A and not surprisingly, Szohr asked if there were any updates on Season 3. McFarlane confirmed that he is aware fans are already begging for the third season and here's what he had to say about that.

"There has been a lot of speculation online: Will the show come back? The show is still a huge priority for me and for the cast and everyone else. We do have a season to finish, and we are going to finish it," McFarlane said before sharing why it's taking so long to start production.

"For a show with a lot of prosthetic makeup that requires close contact, a lot of background artists… it's a big job, and you want to make sure you do it in a way that keeps everyone safe and secure," McFarlane said. "Once we have those protocols figured out, we will start up again and you will get more Orville."

It's great to know that McFarlane is making sure that the cast and crew will be safe before shooting for the third season. Hopefully, the next update will confirm that they have finally started filming.

The Orville Season 3 has not yet been given an official release date. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.
