swan song?!....probably no Season 4 of 'The Orville' / Scott Grimes cast in 'Ted' TV series...
Posted by: NewtonMP2100
Date: April 13, 2022 12:10PM the upcoming season 3 is probably the last.....this is speculation based on several articles.....

......the cast members were released in August when their options expired....if the series were to continue, they would have to make new deals....

.....Seth is working on many other projects.....MacFarlane has been focusing on his development under the mega overall deal he has at NBCUniversal, including the upcoming Peacock series Ted, based on MacFarlane’s movie franchise, with him reprising his voice role as the title character. Ted just cast The Orville cast member Scott Grimes as a series regular, reuniting him with MacFarlane [ casting Scott Grimes in his new TV series of 'Ted' as a series regular, probably confirms it ]]......

....While there are no plans for Season 4 of The Orville, I hear Season 3 is not designed as a definitive ending to the series. The door has been left open for MacFarlane to revisit it with a new installment if/when he wants to do it in the future. In case he decides to do it, the cast will have to be reassembled, and new deals need to be made......

Ted Prequel Series Casting Hints at End of The Orville's Run

....Helmsman Gordon Malloy of the U.S.S. Orville is about to make a thunder buddy for life.

Scott Grimes has been cast in Peacock’s previously announced Ted prequel series, opposite series creator and Orville costar Seth MacFarlane

Additionally, Max Burkholder (Parenthood) has been cast as a 16-year-old John Bennett — the role originated by Mark Wahlberg in the 2012 film. Grimes will play John’s father Matty, “a blustering, blue-collar Bostonian who thinks he is the unequivocal boss in the family, and doesn’t like anyone challenging him — particularly his liberal-minded niece Blaire (played by The Punisher‘s Giorgia Whigham),” per Peacock.

Grimes’ role is in first position to Hulu-bound The Orville. The streamer let the Orville cast’s options expire in August, and there are no current plans for Season 4. (With that said, the door is supposedly open for additional seasons if/when MacFarlane pitches a new installment.)

Although The Orville‘s first two seasons aired on Fox, it was announced in July 2019 that, due to the demands of production, the sci-fi adventure series would move to Hulu for Season 3. Nine months later, the coronavirus pandemic hit, further delaying The Orville‘s next mission. At first, a March 10 return date was set, though that eventually got pushed back further, to Thursday, June 2

As for Ted, the small-screen spinoff is set in the year 1993 — “and Ted the Bear’s moment of fame has passed, leaving him living with his best friend, 16-year-old John Bennett, who lives in a working-class Boston home with his parents and cousin,” according to the official logline. “Ted may not be the best influence on John, but when it comes right down to it, Ted’s willing to go out on a limb to help his friend and his family.” A premiere date has not yet been announced.....

if MacFarlane cast Scott Grimes in another series......probably means 'The Orville' is ending.......?!


I reject your reality and substitute my own!
