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 (11) | 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.

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.

Jan 24, 2019 | Full Review…

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.

Jan 2, 2019 | Full Review…

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

Jan 8, 2019 | Full Review…

A surprising follow up to a Season 1 storyline... It's also welcoming, and another point of evidence that Seth McFarlane's Fox series is more than a parody of Star Trek.

Jan 4, 2019 | Full Review…

The Orville decided to play it safe rather than deliver some edgy material in its second season premiere.

Jan 2, 2019 | Full Review…

Goofy, busy, and with a juvenile bent, but ultimately enjoyable.

Jan 2, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

If the season 2 premiere of The Orville is any indication... [the show] has found its footing and maybe its identity in telling smaller, more character-driven stories, that better serve its sometimes confounding mix of sincerity and irreverence.

Jan 2, 2019 | Full Review…

The Orville is playing to it strengths right out of the gate. If any of the tonal wonkiness of the first season was off-putting for anyone, this second season debut seems to be sending a clear message: This show is a sitcom first.

Jan 2, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

McFarlane has crafted "The Orville" into something of a light dessert for your evening TV viewing.
