Captain Ed Mercer and the crew of the Orville are back for a whole new season of space adventures as the Fox series debuted a season two trailer during San Diego Comic-Con. Inspired by Star Trek, the series became a popular blend of comedy, drama and science fiction during its first season on the network last year and dove into some very deep issues along the way.
Previously creator and star Seth MacFarlane stated that the show had found its footing as season one moved on and that with the second season there will be a heavier science fiction focus.
The Orville stars MacFarlane, Adrianne Palicki, Scott Grimes, Penny Johnson Jerald, Peter Macon, J. Lee, Halston Sage and Mark Jackson. The series returns on December 30.
