Here’s everything you need to know about The Orville Season 4 cast!
The third season which debuted on 3rd June on Hulu, has left the fans confused about the future of the show. Thankfully the creators of the show have spoken up on the matter. And we have a bunch of good news for the fandom! If the third season fares well on the streaming site, you can expect another grand season of The Orville. Here is what you need to know about The Orville Season 4.
Seth MacFarlane’s views on the 4th season of The Orville
When a fan asked Seth Macfarlane about the possibility of the 4th season happening, his answer was not an immediate no. He implied that if there is an audience, then, of course, the 4th season could go under production. But this statement has more to it. Of course, the show has a certain fan following. But it is important for them to show up for the streaming as ratings and viewership numbers do wonder for the renewal of the show. Hulu does not reveal the viewership numbers to the general audience. So, it is hard to tell if the 4th season stands a good chance for its renewal.
MacFarlane has a passion for this project. He has put a lot into these three seasons, so it won’t be a surprise if he gives the show a 4th chance as well. However, he has multiple mainstream projects lined up for him. Hence even if Hulu gives The Orville greenlight for the 4th season, it won’t be on our screens anytime soon. But that is a different debate.
The cast was released from their contracts
According to Deadline, the cast of The Orville was released from their contracts in August. Hence this does not look good for the future of the show. In fact, this might be another way of hinting at its cancellation. So keep in mind that if the 4th season gets the confirmation, it still won’t guarantee that all cast members will return for it.
Thankfully Seth MacFarlane mentioned in an interview that the cast members are just as enthusiastic as him to bring back the show for the 4th season. And why would they not be? After all, it is quite a nostalgic show not just for the fans but also for the whole team! In addition to this, he also made it clear that the show was not economical. It requires an ‘ambitious budget’ because of its genre. So, it depends on the response the third season receives from the audience. It already has an impressive fandom, but the series requires more viewers.
Fans are quite enthusiastic about the show. In fact, there are multiple petitions asking to save the show from being dropped. Twitter fans are working even more hard to spread the word. So, let’s see if Hulu finally decides to renew the show or not. In case you still haven’t streamed the show, this is your golden chance to do so. It will also help out the third season in getting better ratings! For more information, don’t forget to bookmark this page!
Penny Johnson Jerald about the future of the show
Penny Johnson Jerald plays the character of Doctor Claire Finn, and she is one of the core cast members. In an interview, she revealed her interest in the 4th season of the show, and her comments were quite encouraging. She showed interest in the idea of continuing with the show and would love to have one more season. From this, it looks like, despite the contract ends, the actors still have interest in the show.
Has Hulu renewed The Orville Season 4?
No, Hulu has not renewed the show for a 4th season. As the third season debuted on 2nd June, not much time has passed. Deducing from this, we are still not in the red zone!
The third season took an unusual amount of time for its production because of the pandemic. So, one thing that we can assure you is that if the 4th season goes under production, it won’t take as long as the third one. Naturally, there is no release date for The Orville Season 4! We would recommend keeping a tab on the actors’ social media as they are not holding back information from the fans!
