FOX has released the first The Orville season 2 trailer, offering fans a first look at the new season of the sci-fi series. The show hails from creator Seth MacFarlane and quickly established itself as a fan favorite in its freshman season. The show more or less had the look and feel of a Star Trek: The Next Generation tribute portraying outer space adventures of the eponymous ship populated by a less idealized crew with more relaxed human characteristics than a traditional Trek series might depict.
MacFarlane stars as Captain Ed Mercer, who commands the Orville, an exploratory space vessel. The show takes place during the 25th century and is a bit of a mix between a serialized sci-fi series and a workplace comedy, establishing a slightly different alternate reality filled with references to contemporary 21st-century life right here on earth.
Season 1 portrayed the eponymous ship having experiences interacting exotic alien locations and species while also maintaining a large part of its focus on the ship’s crew at the same time. The trailer appears to be a jumbled collage of season 2 episodes mashed up together.
The series also stars Adrianne Palicki, Scott Grimes, Penny Johnson, Peter Macon, Mark Jackson, J. Lee, and Halston Sage. Season 2 is scheduled to premiere December 30th,2018.
