    They've got plenty of safety precautions, so as long as they're careful I don't see why not.

    Well, the show does film in California, and the infection rates there are seriously off the charts at the moment, with it being estimated that someone in California gets infected every six seconds. I can see where putting a TV show's production on hold is a real option.

    I didn't realize things had gotten that bad in California. Yikes. Halting production on things like The Orville probably would be a good idea then.

    I just saw on Instagram that The 100's Eliza Taylor is going to be on The Orville this season.

    A green full body cast. Might that make her a Krill? Probably not a Moclan, they are always played by black people. And certainly not a Xelayan! Now, they are my favourites.

    I've never actually heard of her. What is she known for?

    I only know her voice from commercials on the CW about staying tuned for the 100 or something. ( I didn't)

    The 100, that's why I called her The 100's Eliza Taylor.

    I mean, I feel like I haven’t seen a new ep in 5 years, and no idea when I’ll see a new ep. I’m sure I’m not the only one who feels this way. Too bad, as I really liked the show.

    The pandemic slowed it down badly, though it is filming again now. It had other problems before, probably stemming from the fact that the showrunner, chief writer, and lead actor are the same person. I suspect he thought he could do what he did in cartoon series and live-action films in a live-action series. This is impossible. I wish someone had insisted he don't cast himself. If the show is cancelled, that would be the reason.

    Isn't it not getting renewed, and we already know this is the final season anyways? Definitely not motivational.

    as far as I know this is not correct: season 4 hasn’t been announced yet but there isn’t anything indicating 3 will be the final one either.

    If you are referring to some rumor picked up online...they were wrong about season 2 and 3. And 2, 3, 4 and 5 of discovery. And 2 and 3 of picard. And 2 and 3 of mandalorian. And...shall I go on?

    If The Orville S3 attracts a good audience and draws in money then it'll be renewed, but with the world in the state it's in right now it's hard to say what the future of any show will be, we certainly shouldn't take anything for granted.

    Dark Horse Comics just released their solicitations for May, and among them is the first issue of a Orville mini-series, "Digressions", set in the alternate timeline from the season 2 finale.

    I can’t wait for the next season. Same goes for Better Call Saul.

    Why isn't Alara on the cover? She was very much a part of that timeline.

    Might be they just wanted a generic cover. None of it really is story specific.

    Actually, it did look rather story specific. Maybe it's that they just wanted to highlight the current cast on the cover.

    Don't give a damn about "momentum," just want to see the third year.
