Today’s topic was unexpectedly much more serious than intended. That doesn’t mean that it’s bad, it just means that the topic at hand leaned more into deep topics than the comedy that it’s been more known for. After getting cancelled from cable TV, The Orville was picked up to run a third season out of Hulu. So, yes, we’re talking about the newly minted 3rd season of The Orville: New Horizons!
“Set 400 years in the future, The Orville: New Horizons finds the crew of the USS Orville continuing their mission of exploration, as they navigate both the mysteries of the universe and the complexities of their own interpersonal relationships.”
There are still many laughs, but this new season was VERY powerful. If you want to know the intricacies of each character then you’ll need to watch the first and second seasons, but the themes themselves, of each episode, are enough for you to be able to watch these episodes as stand alone episodes. Some of the topics that inform this season include suicide/death, being transgender, hatred for different species, mating with different species and having children, and extreme love. While this season seems a little deeper than normal, it is still such a good watch, and it’s definitely recommended for anybody out there.
