The Orville is a science fiction comedy-drama that was created by and stars Seth MacFarlane. This unique show airs on Fox and is in the same vane as Star Trek. The setting is 400 years in the future, and MacFarlane is the commander of a mid-level exploratory vessel called the U.S.S Orville. The show began on September 10th, 2017. If you don’t have access to Fox, a cable subscription, or a satellite subscription, you would usually miss out. However, we have some ways for you to enjoy it without either service.
Launched in 2017, this show definitely has some promise to it. That is, assuming it does not become too campy. MacFarlane’s character is slated to become a starship commander by age 40, but a year before the pilot takes place, he catches his wife in bed with an alien. Since then, he has become a slacker. However, due to the shrinking fleet size and a recent retirement, MacFarlane ends up the commander of the Orville. His first officer is his ex-wife. Let’s take a look at the ways to watch this show.
For those planning on traveling abroad during the season, you’ll want to connect to a US server with a VPN first.
