The Orville: New Horizons aired its season finale on August 4th.
Since The Orville: New Horizons aired its season finale on August 4th, fans have been clamoring for an announcement of a season four renewal. In fact, it didn’t take long after the finale for #RenewtheOrville to take off on Twitter. Just yesterday, the Youtube channel “Talking The Orville,” which has over 36,000 subscribers, released a video with scenes from the series and Renew The Orville as a text overlay. Needless to say, fans want another season of this cinematic science fiction show. And the lack of information is excruciating.
A recent post by CarterMatt asked if we could learn the fate of the series this year. It seems to have been expected that Hulu would take this long on making a decision because of the behind-the-scenes negotiations that need to take place, including contract renewals for the series stars. Nevertheless, the site indicates there is reason to believe fans will hear something before the end of the year as we still have two more months for Hulu to make a decision.
The Orville: New Horizons has a massive fan following and is now streaming on Disney+.
Looking at some positives, there is good reason to hope for a forthcoming renewal, even if it doesn’t happen this year.
The series was in the top ten most streamed series across all streaming channels for the week of June 11th. A season three episode has now claimed a top-rated spot on IMDB. After its appearance on Disney+, the numbers for The Orville surged. All of the stars of the series want to return for another season. The series has been called better than Star Trek by Forbes and has remained on the radars of many other sites, with some posting as recently as yesterday, which keeps The Orville in the news.
All of the publicity, additional articles, tweets, social media posts, and petitions tells the story. No one wants to let go of The Orville. For now, we can only hope Hulu feels the same way along with hoping that CarterMatt is right about the potential for news before the end of the year.
