The Orville finale air date, first details revealed by Fox

Orville finaleWant to know The Orville finale air date, and some of the first teases as to what you can expect? Have no fear, as we’re here to provide both for you!

The first thing that you should know is that, regrettably, The Orville finale is going to be here before you know it. It’s going to air on Thursday, December 7, and from that point on you are going to be without episodes until 2018 rolls around. Hey, at least you know there’s going to be a second season of the show, right? The ratings and DVR numbers have been good enough to give Seth MacFarlane a vote of confidence, and that’s a great thing since this is the sort of show poised to make a great leap in the second season. It’s already got a ton of devoted fans, but to go along with that it has a premise with unlimited potential. It’s made in the spirit of Star Trek and it has going for it a lot of the stuff that also made the original series of Star Trek great — imagination and risk-taking.

As for what’s coming story-wise in The Orville finale, CarterMatt has for you the attached synopsis:

Ed and Kelly seriously reconsider getting back together. However, while Kelly is on a mission with Isaac and Gordon to investigate the origins of an uncharted star, they suddenly crash-land on a planet from another universe. Kelly then makes a decision with unforeseen long-term consequences for the planet, putting Ed in a difficult position in the all-new “Mad Idolatry” season finale episode of THE ORVILLE airing Thursday, Dec. 7 (9:01-10:00 PM ET) on FOX.

For those wondering, we’re not even remotely surprised that the first season of The Orville is going to end with some discussion as to whether or not Ed and Kelly could get back together. There’s going to be a good storytelling engine behind the show either way, mostly because the heart of The Orville lies mostly within its spirit of adventure, of discovering new places and occasionally having some fun along the way.
