Seth MacFarlane and 'The Orville: New Horizons' 

The Orville is finally ready to explore New Horizons. Seth MacFarlane's sci-fi series moves from Fox to Hulu for its third season, which kicks off June 2 with a dramatic, emotional premiere that sets the tone for the adventures to come. The creator/star confirms that Season 3 represents the culmination of the show's evolution from a good-natured Star Trek spoof into its own distinct take on the final frontier. "Over the course of the series, we were really finding what it was that we wanted to be," MacFarlane says. "We were really striving for this balance between drama and comedy... and in Season 3, we just said: 'Let's lean into the sci-fi stories. Let's tell the stories we want to tell and let the comedy kind of find us.' And it really worked! This is the season where I really feel like we found our tonal groove." MacFarlane offers up his own stirring defense of "woke" sci-fi. "The tragedy of Fox News to me is that there actually is a need for a responsible conservative news outlet that isn't bats*** crazy," he says. "[An outlet] that is not extremist, that does not push nationalistic politics. A lot of us on the entertainment side have kind of waved that flag." "Star Trek has always been progressive," MacFarlane continues. "I guess I was watching a different show when I was watching the re-runs of The Original Series on TV! They were always kind of breaking boundaries and asking audiences to question things that they were comfortable with in a conservative way. I'm not surprised that Fox News is a little out of touch."
