What I've heard now is that they have internally renewed Orville, but are holding off on any announcements because MacFarlane's contract is up in June and nothing has been settled yet.

So what does that mean exactly? Does it mean they have to agree on his salary, residuals, etc, and the show can't continue if for some reason the two sides can't reach an agreement?

Well, from what I hear, he's getting competing offers from other venues, like Hulu and Netflix, so, theoretically, he could be taking his properties somewhere else. Orville could be part of the negotiations. Maybe Hulu will offer to carry Orville, so FOX will counter with a two-season guarantee or something like that. Or maybe they'll offer more money for Family Guy if he forgets about Orville, which means he'll have to try to sell it elsewhere as a standalone property. :shrug:

If true, this is great news indeed. I have no idea whether Entertainment Weekly is a credible news source.

It seems to be, and the news has now been confirmed by Variety, so it's official. We have Season Three! :dance:

It was, but I hope there are no further repercussions. I hope they just move on with new stories.

Agree! Is The Orville popular in the UK?

I have no idea, most discussion is generally not about sci-fi here.

I can't seem to find a site that gives information about international ratings.

What do we know about ratings of Star Trek Discovery versus The Orville?

Streaming services don't release ratings information like channels and networks do. CBS All Access claims that Discovery is doing well, but their subscription numbers don't bear that out.

^ Thanks for this info. I'm always curious.

I just wish we didn't have to wait until probably October before we see new episodes of The Orville. :sob:

I know. Gone are the days of twenty-six episodes, starting reliably in September.

^^ Indeed. I need to decide what sci-fi shows are out there now that I can sink my teeth into.

Depends on what you mean by Sci Fi. In terms of Space Opera, there's nada. There's some other good stuff around, though, but not much.
