“We are still going to be doing standalone episodes. However, now we have shown that we can do a deeper dive in the Union, into the aliens, into our characters. So, we will continue that build. But again, it is really important for us for the show to stick to the format. You don’t want anybody confused who has never seen the show before. That is always a goal for us. We don’t want to alienate any new audience member. We’re expanding the characters and storylines, building on everything we’ve done before.”

The Orville season 3 release date
Hulu or Disney has not revealed the official release date of the Orville season 3 yet. The production of the series still needs 3-4 months to complete, and the series is expected to premiere by the end of 2021.
MacFarlane who is on the production team of the show gave some hints about the release date of the series. He said in an interview:
“My friends at the network understood what I was trying to do with this series, and they’ve done a spectacular job of marketing, launching, and programming it for these past two seasons. But as the show has evolved and become more ambitious production-wise, I determined that I would not be able to deliver episodes until 2020, which would be challenging for the network. So we began to discuss how best to support the third season in a way that worked for the show.”
