Seth MacFarlane's 'The Orville' Is Moving to Hulu for Season 3

Seth MacFarlane‘s sci-fi series The Orville is leaving Fox and moving to Hulu for its upcoming third season.

The 45-year-old actor and writer revealed the news at 2019 Comic-Con.

“The Orville has been a labor of love for me, and there are two companies which have supported that vision in a big way: 20th Century Fox Television, where I’ve had a deal since the start of my career, and FOX Broadcasting Company, now FOX Entertainment, which has been my broadcast home for over 20 years,” Seth said in a statement provided to JustJared.com. “My friends at the network understood what I was trying to do with this series, and they’ve done a spectacular job of marketing, launching and programming it for these past two seasons. But as the show has evolved and become more ambitious production-wise, I determined that I would not be able to deliver episodes until 2020, which would be challenging for the network.”

“So we began to discuss how best to support the third season in a way that worked for the show. It’s exactly this kind of willingness to accommodate a show’s creative needs that’s made me want to stick around for so long. I am hugely indebted to Charlie Collier and FOX Entertainment for their generosity and look forward to developing future projects there. And to my new friends at Hulu, I look forward to our new partnership exploring the galaxy together,” Seth added.

The third season of The Orville will air as a Hulu Original in late 2020.
