The streaming service Hulu has revealed the shows and movies it’ll be premiering over the month of August 2021 and, just as we thought, The Orville season 3 is nowhere to be found on the list. In fact, fans are still in the dark about the sci-fi, comedy-drama. Here’s what we know.

The Orville premiere on Fox in late 2017, with season 2 wrapping on April 26, 2019. That said, it has been a few years since we’ve seen Captain Ed Mercer (Seth MacFarlane) and favorite space crew. There have been major changes going on behind the scenes, as well.

For starters, The Orville has moved from FOX to Hulu, so we are all waiting for The Orville to premiere on Hulu instead of the FOX network.

From a possible release date to episode information, here’s everything we know about The Orville season 3 so far.

When does The Orville season 3 come out on Hulu?

There’s a reason why season 3 has taken this long to premiere, and that would be COVID-19. Due to the pandemic, filming (which began in Oct. 2019) was halted. It resumed in Jan. 2021, but stopped again for several weeks until Feb. 2021.

It’s possible filming is done, but now it’s time for some behind-the-scenes work and editing before the season is ready.

The Cinemaholic shares that season will premiere on Hulu in early 2022. If anything changes, such as another delay or a possible earlier release date, you’ll be the first to know!

How many episodes are in The Orville season 3?

Season 3 of the comedy-drama will consist of 11 episodes, this is fewer than season 1 and season 2, but since streaming episodes are different than network, each episode will run 12-15 minutes longer, CinemaBlend reports.
