Plot Synopsis

Created and written by Seth MacFarlane, THE ORVILLE is a live-action, one-hour space adventure series set 400 years in the future that 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. The series opens with a newly-promoted captain of the exploratory spaceship U.S.S. Orville being surprised when he learns that his ex-wife has been assigned as his First Officer. THE ORVILLE has a two-night series premiere, following the NFL doubleheaders at 8pm ET/5pm PT on consecutive Sundays -- September 10 & 17 -- before moving to its regular timeslot -- Thursdays at 9pm -- beginning September 21.
FOX premieres Season 2 of THE ORVILLE on Sunday, December 30, 2018 from 8-9pm ET/5-6pm PT (live to all time zones), following the NFL ON FOX doubleheader. In Season 2, Ed (Seth MacFarlane) and Kelly's (Adrianne Palicki) relationship will take a new turn, while the ship's crew will meet never-before-seen aliens, face old adversaries the Krill, make first contact with a new civilization and revisit the planet Moclus. On Thursday, January 3, 2019, THE ORVILLE makes its time period premiere with an all-new episode at 9pm.
