Seth MacFarlane’s space adventure series ‘The Orville’ last saw a new episode on air in 2019. The pandemic was a massive setback for a show with standing sets, regulars and extras requiring very detailed prosthetic makeups that require close contact. As a result, the pandemic put a temporary halt to plans for the show until last year.

“The Orville” debuted in 2016, and two seasons aired, and the show had viewers who “got it” right away and immediately jumped on board or those who were confused and asked, “ what exactly is this show?” The latter group might further ask, “is this show a parody of Star Trek, or is it something else?”

Simply put, “The Orville” is an homage to “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” with nods to “Star Wars,” “The Twilight Zone,” and more. The “Star Trek” original series, with its dated effects and over-the-top acting, has been repeatedly satirized. As a result, more people came to appreciate it. Still, “The Next Generation” was responsible for the franchise’s endurance for many later decades, with three more spin-off series using its often less campy approach to storytelling. It focused more on world-building and drama, with stories that didn’t need action and alien threats every week. “The Orville” is an homage to this type of more episodic storytelling and also takes place on a more luxurious spaceship than the original “Star Trek” series. With Paramount reaching into the past and taking the official Star Trek canon off the air on its streaming service and using flashier versions of the ship and its out-of-the-box characters and storylines, the Orville is simpler. It is shot in the same style as “The Next Generation.

Additionally, it uses the same type of stories that appeared on this show, as well as the same types of characters and the same types of low-to-low dilemmas. Even the filming style (with brightly lit sets and sparse artwork) and background music) is more akin to ’90s Star Trek. This technique is more pleasantly nostalgic than trying to rewrite the history of characters. inherited like Spock, Kirk or Pike. The series cares much more about the vision of Star Trek and its own characters; it doesn’t need to thread itself through fifty years of canonical stories.

The third season of the show will air on “Hulu,” and an amazing new trailer has just been released. The show, now called “The Orville: New Horizons,” will build its world outward this season as the conflict between the Planetary Union and the robot Kaylons escalates. The trailer shows off gorgeous special effects and space combat footage. Still, it’s intercut with picture-perfect character moments that ensure a positive view of the future will always be central to the series. As Captain Mercer says in the trailer, “Show the galaxy that humans are different, that we value life even when our enemies don’t.”

We’ve come to a point in our culture where a show that started largely as a parody of a well-known property will thrive because it truly understands what makes that property work. “Orville New Horizons” premieres on Hulu on June 2.
