    Nope. They negotiate, Seth comes into his agent's office, signs, and contract is then delivered to FOX Exec(s) in meeting with Seth's agent and they sign and all is well.

    Disney+ or Hulu are definite possibilities if Fox passes on it. Or maybe CBS AA, re-branded as Star Trek:Orville.

    Obviously I am kidding on the last one but Disney for sure would consider it for one of their OTT products since it has a loyal and hardcore fan base who would be willing to pay to see it. ENT would have got a 5th season for sure if it had been cancelled during the streaming service era.

    I still expect it to get renewed by Fox.

    According to TV Line Star has been cancelled, so that leaves 2. I'm getting even less optimistic. :(

    Maybe.

    It sure looks like the show made it past Black Friday, which is reassuring.

    I'd like to get more than just that one source when it comes to the Orville. TV Line, TV By the Numbers, or Deadline hasn't announced anything yet. Now I just found out on Reddit that Orville was part of the whole investor relations panel today but I wonder why it's taking so long for the official announcement.

    Fox cancelled four shows today, none of which were The Orville. And featured The Orville in a recent promotional picture for advertisers (the picture included none of the canceled shows)

    I saw their promotional investors slideshow thing. This is good news, even though I'm surprised they haven't officially announced anything yet. Still, it looks like they survived today, which was a bludgeon of cancellations (And an actress who was mad that her show got renewed which was surprising). My optimism is back on the rise.

    They don't negotiate the contracts every season. Actors and actresses sign on for several seasons. If they think their show might be cancelled, they can look for other work, they just have to come back if the show gets renewed.

    If there are not negotiating then why hasn’t any party involved announced it as a renewal? Because they are still negotiating. They might go back and forth all weekend. Like I said before I feel like they are trying to slash the budget or reduce the episode number to get it cheaper.

    Constance Wu from Fresh off the Boat. She sent out some tweets mad that her show got renewed and then had to send out another tweet backtracking on the whole thing. Her tweets are in the Cancelation show thread in the TV Forum if you want to see what they were. The first day back might be a little awkward.

    They are NOT negotiating. The actors (probably) have a 6 year contract. The production team as well. The network has to decide now if they will renew. MacFarlene's contract might be up or coming up because Orville is included in his production deal(s).

    Fox network is probably trying to lower the license fee it pays for the show. And if that's the case then Fox studios/Disney have to decide if they are willing to lose some money in the first run, try to slash the budget to offset that or move it somewhere else.

    Here's a Variety article recapping the whole thing, Instagram "dislike" and all.
