'The Orville' season 2: New trailers tease storyline; reveal old enemies, never-before-seen aliens and a trip to planet Moclus
The major similarity between the two trailers is the presence of Krill, the upcoming season's main antagonists
The success of season one of 'The Orville' is what prompted the creator of the show, Seth MacFarlane, to take up another season of the sci-fi comedy-drama series. Season one, which ended with 12 episodes, took us through a brief journey of the world MacFarlane created while season two is expected to take viewers on another beautiful journey, except this time, we are promised more action. Season two, set to kick off at the end of this year, will premiere with a two-hour episode, as reported by Econotimes.
Fox recently released two official preview trailers for season two of 'The Orville'. The first trailer, opens up straight into the heart of the action in the second season's plotline, filled with new missions and some epic adventures.
The action-drama combination, a go-to sci-fi formula, plays pretty well as we are immediately drawn to the promise of an amazing space journey. There are, of course, moments of comedy visible in the first trailer but that does not overpower the show as plain comedy, just like season one. Watch it here:
The second trailer of 'The Orville' brings back the light-hearted quality of the show, with one scene in particular where Lt. Cmdr. Bortus (Peter Macon) is seen with a mustache which is enough to get you in splits. Even though the second trailer takes us closer to the crew of 'The Orville', introducing each main character in a split second preview, it gives bare minimum information about their new missions, except for the fact that it comes with its share of danger.
From a few scenes in the preview 2 trailer of 'The Orville', we can make out that one of the missions could be to Bortus' home planet, Moclus, which provides some heavy action and thrills. The major similarity between the two trailers is the presence of Krill, the upcoming season's main antagonists. There is also a mysterious figure, in trailer two that looks important to the potential death of a crew member in a space suit, we suspect. The identity of this crew member has not been revealed yet.
Even though there are no concrete teasers for the upcoming season, the trailers do show definite unrest for the crew of 'The Orville' and that's all fans need to enjoy the sci-fi comedy show. We can't wait to see where this new season takes us and the crew of 'The Orville' to.
Here’s a brief description from the FOX release: "In Season Two, Ed (MacFarlane) and Kelly’s (Adrianne Palicki) relationship will take a new turn, while the ship’s crew will meet never-before-seen aliens, face old adversaries the Krill, make first contact with a new civilization and revisit the planet Moclus."
'The Orville' season two will premiere on Fox on December 30 this year.
