Not to be outdone by Star Trek: Discovery, the crew of the USS Orville will be returning to Fox for a new season of adventures next year. That's good news, but the surprisingly early renewal also means that you won't be getting more Orville beyond the 13 episodes already set to air this year.

Fox premiered Seth MacFarlane's Star Trek-ish comedy, The Orville, this week. Was it as bad as all the early reviews claimed it would be? It was worse, actually, because nothing truly captures the pain of something actually managing to crawl under the low bar it set for itself. And there's no reason for The Orville to be that bad, since plenty of other comedies have managed to achieve all the things MacFarlane wants to do, but can't.
Fox's new scifi sitcom The Orville wowed us in its first look, mainly because it managed to come off as both a loving homage to the campiest aspects of classic Star Trek while also being genuinely funny. The new Comic-Con trailer is much the same -- reminding us that exploring the strange new frontiers can be a truly ridiculous endeavour.
