The Orville moves to Hulu for Season 3

The Orville moves to Hulu for Season 3

Seth Macfarlane's brilliant The Orville is moving to Disney-owned Hulu for its third season - a move that was something of a surprise given the show's original renewal on Fox.

The move was announced at NYCC this weekend and an insider talking to Variety said that the effects and production of the show would mean it would not be ready for a mid-season premiere and the decision was made to move to Hulu where the series would be able to debut later in 2020.

The announcement comes on the heels of Orville creator Seth Macfarlane's criticism of Fox News on social media and we wonder whether there is some link between the producer/actor's displeasure with the links between the Fox TV network and Fox News.

There is no word how the shift in the US might affect the show's UK broadcast which is currently via the Fox channel on Sky.
