The Orville - Season 2 - Will Premiere in 2018 *Updated*

"I think it's going to be at least 14 [episodes]," MacFarlane said. That's more than the 12 that made up Season 1, but considerably less than the typical 22-episode order count for broadcast shows, but there's a reason for that. "I'd rather do fewer episodes and have them be better content-wise than do 22 and have them be filler." The 14 episodes may actually be the result of Season 1 moving an episode back to Season 2, so if you want to get technical about it, it's really two 13-episode seasons.

However, more of The Orville means the second season probably won't be ready when we want it to be. When asked if Season 2 would be ready for the fall — which is when Season 1 debuted — MacFarlane didn't hesitate to temper expectations.

"No, there's too much to do," MacFarlane said. The effects-heavy show takes a long time to produce episodes, and as you can imagine, MacFarlane is a very busy person.

But there's more exciting news! During the press tour's Family Guypanel, it was revealed that a future Family Guy episode may have a crossover with The Orville. "I sent the script on a slow boat [to approve]," executive producer Rich Appel said. "But we end up live on the bridge of The Orville. We'll see."
