FOX Sets Premiere Date for the Second Season of the Hit Space Adventure Series The Orville, from Emmy® Award-winning Executive Producer and Creator Seth MacFarlane and 20th Century Fox Television

The Orville will premiere in the UK on Thursday 10th January at 9pm on FOX

FOX today announces that the hotly anticipated second series of Seth MacFarlane’s popular space-faring series The Orville will premiere in the UK on Thursday 10th January at 9pm.

Set 400 years in the future, the series follows The U.S.S. Orville, a mid-level exploratory spaceship, and its crew, both human and alien, who face the wonders and dangers of outer space, while also dealing with the problems of everyday life.

In the second season, the ship’s crew will meet never-before-seen aliens and face old adversaries, the Krill. The crew, led by their captain Ed (MacFarlane, Family Guy, Ted, Cosmos: A SpaceTime Odyssey) will make first contact with a new civilisation and revisit the planet Moclus. Ed and Kelly’s (Adrianne Palicki, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Friday Night Lights) relationship also will take a new turn – all of which points to a season filled to the brim with adventure, mystery and romance.

The ensemble series stars MacFarlane as the ship’s Captain, Ed Mercer, and Adrianne Palicki as his ex-wife, who’s assigned as his First Officer. Additional cast members include Penny Johnson Jerald (24, The Larry Sanders Show), Scott Grimes (American Dad!, Justified), Peter Macon (Shameless, Bosch), Halston Sage (Neighbors, Goosebumps), J. Lee (American Dad!, The Cleveland Show), Mark Jackson (The Royal Today), Chad L. Coleman (The Walking Dead, The Wire) and newcomer to the cast Jessica Szohr (Gossip Girl, Twin Peaks).

The Orville is produced by 20th Century Fox Television. The series was created and written by Seth MacFarlane. MacFarlane, Brannon Braga (Terra Nova), David A. Goodman (Family Guy), Jason Clark (Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, Ted) and Jon Cassar (24, The Kennedys) serve as executive producers on the series. Jon Favreau (The Jungle Book, Iron Man) directed the series premiere episode.
