The poster shows Hulu sticking to the new June release date for Seth MacFarlane’s tribute to Star Trek: The Next Generation† There is also a report on the future of the series.
New Horizons shoot away
Here’s the new poster, with the tagline “New Home. New missions.”
The poster shows a number of ships that make up the Planetary Union logo. In addition to the USS Orville itself, there is a Union fighter, Moclan cruiser, Krill fighter, Kaylon interceptor, and Kaylon cruiser. These could potentially point to future storylines for “New Horizons.”
The show’s future is up for debate
The Orville has always been a passion project for Seth MacFarlane, but he also has other commitments as part of his 2020 deal with NBC Universal. This includes developing a new prequel TV series to his 2012 comedy Ted for peacock. And according to Deadline, there are currently no firm plans to continue with a fourth season of The Orvilleand the cast was released from their options last August. The Orville’s Scott Grimes has just been cast as a series regular on the Peacock Ted series. If New Horizons performs well for Hulu, the Disney-controlled streamer would probably want more from MacFarlane, if he and the cast can make it happen with their schedules.
