Fox has officially revealed the season two premiere date of Seth MacFarlane’s The Orville.
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.
