    Constance Wu has the IQ of a blueberry scone.

    So do I which is why this was surprising from her. I hadn't seen any diva like reports about her before yesterday.

    Oh, yeah, I remember hearing about that several years back. At the time I remember being disdainful of the idea, mostly due to being burnt out on Family Guy and his other cartoons. Now that I've seen two seasons of Orville I'll gladly eat my words from back then.

    Many have speculated that Orville evolved from his ideas for his own Trek series. Though I got to admit, all things considered, I'm glad he did Orville as its own thing rather than as a Star Trek series. Mostly since being its own thing allows MacFarlane freedom to mold the show according to his own vision, rather than forcing it to conform to Gene's Vision which would undoubtedly be a requirement (or at least an expectation by the fans) if it were Star Trek.

    Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Orville is renewed. Is it true? Dunno.

    They are the only ones reporting that. I would be happy with another source, or something from Fox on Monday.

    No, EW knows nothing.

    Director Jon Caesar has posted this on Twitter today:

    On the other hand, Variety does know:

    Twelve minutes ago.

    Other sites are picking up the story now.

    Time to start the Orville season 3 thread, even though I expect it to premiere maybe Spring next year. I just hope it's not on the same night as Discovery. I hated Thursday Nights this year from January to April.

    Very glad to see The Orville renewed for season three. Can't wait to see where they take us.

    2 things I want from season 3 more than anything else.

    1. A John story

    2. Talla's backstory fleshed out a little more. I still think the transition from Alara to Talla could have been better. Maybe even more backstory on Xelaya.

    No details---but at least it's coming back.
