Tv Season Info

In Season Two, the ship's crew will meet never-before-seen aliens and face old adversaries, the Krill. They'll make first contact with a new civilization and revisit the planet Moclus. ED (MacFarlane) and KELLY's (Adrianne Palicki) relationship also will take a new turn -- all of which points to a season filled with adventure, mystery, romance and, as always, some poignant social commentary.

Critic Reviews for The Orville: Season 2

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (2)

[It] may not want to be a space spoof, but if it's able to fully evolve into a character-driven dramedy that just happens to be set in space, then that's adding something unique to the genre. And that could make "The Orville" a show worth watching.

Season 2 is occasionally a bumpy ride for its changes in story and pacing, but it's well worth the journey.

When The Orville dials down the goofy comedy, it can hold its own with any of the more traditional science fiction properties out there.

Last night, I was emotionally moved by an episode about a character's pornography addiction-a concept so ridiculous that only some likeable characters and impeccable writing can pull off.

An understated, character-driven second season premiere that functions more like a day-in-the-life starship story than anything involving aliens or galactic peril.

There is a sensitivity, skill and structural balance at work here which demonstrates what continues to make The Orville so special.
