The Orville, Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane’s sci-fi show that is part parody, part homage of Star Trek, has grown and improved since its so-so pilot, and now fans are awaiting news on season 3. Now, MacFarlane has given a brief update on how the next batch of episodes is coming along amid the current COVID-19 pandemic.
In an Instagram chat with Jessica Szohr, who plays Lt. Talla Keyali on the show, MacFarlane said that work on the show is continuing, but there’s not much he can say. As reported by Deadline, MacFarlane said to his co-star, “All I can say is we are working on it. We’re working on it very hard, we got hit by this just like everyone else, but we’re working on it.”
The Orville has not begun shooting its third season yet, so it’s still in pre-production.
He also talked about how much he enjoys writing for the characters on the show. “What I love about the show, about the characters, is that I could pick one of the characters and write a story about them that week…It’s wide open and I think it allows for a lot of longevity.”
The Orville is moving from Fox to Hulu for season 3. McFarlane is also working on a World War II series for NBC, and continues to voice numerous characters on his creations Family Guy and American Dad. Family Guy was recently renewed for two more seasons, and has just begun its 19th season.
