The second season of MacFarlane’s comedic Star Trek homage will see a midseason return as stupid Thursday Night Football takes over The Orville’s former time slot in the fall.

 

The Orville will return on Sunday, December 30th following a Sunday Night Football double-header. The series will then resume in its Thursday home following the conclusion of the NFL season.

We've yet to know whether the new season's second episode will air on the following Sunday after the NFL Sportsball Playoffs, January 6th, or if it'll instantly be rocketed to Thursday the 10th to fill it's rightful place as the King of Thursdays.

The Orville Season Two is currently in production. The series is adding Jessica Szohr (Talla) as a new series regular and Chris Johnson (Cassius) in a recurring role in its second season. A veteran Star Trek writer was also brought on board as an additional executive producer, and Robert Picardo is confirmed to return as a guest star in episode 2.

STAR TREK EXISTS IN THE ORVILLE UNIVERSE!

Hey, gang. Welcome back to Talking The Orville on Egotastic FunTime.

Today we’re gonna have a great time talking about one of the biggest questions I hear the most about The Orville… Does Star Trek exist in The Orville universe?

And the answer to that question is unequivocally, Yes. It does exist. Here's why...

STAR WARS EXISTS. In the episode, Command Performance, Alara reaches out to Dr. Finn for advice. Dr. Finn says, "I can't tell you what to do but I can be your Obi Wan". 

A universe where Star Wars exists and Star Trek doesn't is a bastard universe that nobody would ever want to live in.

I could only imagine a universe without Star Trek looking a lot like this...

STAR TREK & SEINFELD. In the episode Pria, the story begins with the crew of The Orville watching an episode of Seinfeld. So Jerry, George, Elaine and Kramer exist in this world. Ok? Then I remembered an episode of Seinfeld when George and Jerry were discussing The Wrath Of Khan.

If Star Trek exists in Seinfeld and Seinfeld exists in The Orville then Star Trek also exists because reasons!

DOCTOR WHO'S TARDIS. In the episode New Dimensions, when the crew is trying to figure out a way to travel through 2 Dimensional space without being crushed, Captain Mercer mentions Doctor Who's Tardis.

Since Doctor Who's revival in 2005, there have been many references to Star Trek in the show. Most notably, this scene when we're first introduced to The Silence. 

Also, there was an official Star Trek/Doctor Who crossover released in comic book form called Assimilation2 (Squared). This was approved by both The BBC and CBS.

Another reason I know that Star Trek exists in The Orville universe is because of Kermit The Frog. Kermit sits right on Ed's desk and is beloved by the captain. 

If Kermit The Frog exists, that means The Muppets exist, which means that Miss Piggy exists and Miss Piggy was in Pigs In Space which is a direct parody of Star Trek The Original Series. Therefore Star Trek exists in The Orville Universe. 

And on that note...

Ok. That's it. That's all I wanted to talk about today and I talked about it. How about you? Can you think of more examples that prove Star Trek exists in The Orville Universe? You can let me know by joining the conversation below. 

I’ll see you soon and as always, I hope all your times are egotastic funtimes. Love you. Bye bye.

Who Is This Legend coming to The Orville?

"I'ma find out if I can let the cat out of the bar[bag], but there's a legend under this makeup joining #TheOrville" 

In a recent behind-the-scenes photo shared on instagram by J Lee, who plays Chief John LaMarr on The Orville, we see a new alien species will be making an appearance in season 2. 

J Lee states that "there's a legend under this makeup..."! But who could it be?

Legend could refer to a famous actor from Star Trek or perhaps someone from the CW abomination known as DC's Legends Of Tomorrow. I really hope that's not it because that show sucks donkey bananas.

Some are already theorizing, based on the shape of the eye, that the legend underneath all that makeup is none other than Captain Picard himself... Sir Patrick Stewart. He's already been a lobster. Why not this guy?

I have to admit, I'm starting to see SirPatStew underneath that lizardy rhino skin as well. But really, the shape of an eye with extremely hardcore movie magic all over it isn't much to go on.

By doing extensive research on Google for 20 seconds, I discovered that SirPatStew is actually an inch taller than J Lee in real life. So I was skeptical because the alien in the picture looks shorter than Mr. Lee. But then I realized that there's this thing called context and that the person wearing all that makeup could very well be sitting on a high stool or leaning on a bar or something. Whaaaaaaaaaat!?!

Hell, I wouldn't doubt it if John Legend was under there waiting to bust out a tune in The Orville's second season. A Lizard Rhino playing a song is something Seth MacFarlane would totally be into, you guys.

Doing my best "what's in the box!" impression... WHO THE HELL IS UNDER THE MAKEUP!?!?!?!

Are you #TeamSirPatStew or #TeamJohnLegend?

FYI. John Legend is a 1/2 inch shorter than J Lee in real life... Google it, bitches.
