That’s what fans hope for The Orville season 4 is on the way. The third season ended on a positive note, but there are still a lot of unresolved story threads. Unfortunately, despite its popularity, Fox and now Hulu don’t seem too keen on the series. Unfortunately, it may be a while before we know the fate of the show.
Is The Orville Getting A 4th Season Or Is It Canceled?
The Orville Season 4 has not yet been announced. However, it was not canceled entirely, and the final episode was promoted as the season finale, not the series finale. Speaking at San Diego Comic-Con, series creator Seth MacFarlane explained that a fourth season of the show depends on how well it performs on Disney+, which it will be transitioning to soon.
Unfortunately, there’s no word yet on how well New Horizons has performed. A large gap between seasons two and three shattered some of the momentum the show had found in its second season. However, the three-year gap was not detrimental to the quality of the writing and acting, and the third season received critical acclaim.
A negative sign for the future of the show is the fact that the cast were released from their contracts in August 2021. That means MacFarlane would either have to wait for everyone to become available again or drop characters, which would be heartbreaking for fans.
Alternatively, MacFarlane could gently reboot The Orville with season four. A brief time warp could explain why some characters are missing, and some new ones could take their place.
Regardless, season four would likely revolve around the conflict between the Planetary Union and the Moclan-Krill Alliance. This situation remained unresolved, and with the Keylon War ending, the two factions are likely to come into conflict. We’d probably see more of Mercer’s daughter, too.
