"There has been a lot of speculation online: Will the show come back? The show is still a huge priority for me and for the cast and everyone else," MacFarlane said during an Instagram Q&A with fellow cast member Jessica Szohr. "We do have a season to finish, and we are going to finish it."
MacFarlane also discussed how the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic impacted how the cast and crew will film the series. "For a show with a lot of prosthetic makeup that requires close contact, a lot of background artists… it's a big job, and you want to make sure you do it in a way that keeps everyone safe and secure. Once we have those protocols figured out, we will start up again and you will get more Orville."
It is good to know that McFarlane sees the show as a priority and is also taking the health safety of the cast seriously. Hopefully they can figure something out soon and get the season finished.
