The plot of The Orville Season 3

The most distinguishing and impressive factor of The Orville series is its genius storytelling. So, hold your breaths for more of that this season!

However, there is almost no solid information available about the exact storyline of the third season as of now. The editor and co-producer of The Orville 3 said that we will see an extension in the most valuable things and concepts of the series. Also, The most appreciated characters will be at their best this season.

In short, all the complaints and suggestions from the viewers are being taken into consideration. This would offer us a great renewal of the series!

The cast

We can expect the following characters to be there in The Orville season 3-

  • Ed Mercer- The protagonist of the series and the leader of the whole team (MacFarlane)
  • Commander Kelly Grayson (Adrianna Palicki)
  • Lieutenant Gordon Malloy (Scott Grimes)
  • Lieutenant Commander  John LaMarr (J Lee)
  • Doctor Claire Finn (Penny Johnson Jerald)
  • Lieutenant Commander Bortus (Peter Macon)

Other characters expected to appear in the third season include Isaac, Lieutenant Talla Keyali, Klyden, and others.

Lieutenant Alara Kitan, who was loved by many, died in the second season. When asked about the possibility of her appearing again, the executive producer said that they would love to bring her back. So, if the story proceeds in a way where she can appear again (maybe as a part of flashback scenes), they will be open to the idea of Alara Kitan coming back on screen.

That was all about The Orville Season 3. Stay tuned for all the latest updates.
