The Comic-Con trailer for Seth MacFarlane’s The Orville promises plenty of interstellar gags

New, 15 comments

The show premieres on September 10th

At San Diego Comic-Con today, Fox Television released a new trailer for its upcoming space comedy from Seth MacFarlane, The Orville. It shows off plenty of interstellar gags, and comes with a release date: September 10th.

This new trailer doesn’t show off much more than the trailer released back in May: MacFarlane stars as the hapless Captain Ed Mercer, who is assigned to command the U.S.S. Orville. MacFarlane is best known for creating Fox’s Family Guy, and the show looks as though it’s aiming for the same level of humor. Hijinks ensue as crew members calm their nerves by drinking while flying, bemoan long working hours, and engage alien enemies.

The Orville premieres on September 10th on Fox.
