Excellent question! My guess is that it'll come out shortly before season two airs, so fans can refresh themselves, and new viewers can get a chance to check it out just prior to the season premiere.

I recently "refreshed" myself by watching the first season On Demand.
Trying to break up the nearly one year between episodes.

Looks fun though, no sophomore jinx!

The back half of S1 is OnDemand again. Just watched "Mad Idolatry" for, like, the sixth time

SUCH a good show!!!!!!!!!

When MacFarlane indicated early on that Ed and Kelly's relationship would be on again/off again like Ross and Rachel on FRIENDS, I cringed (maybe because Emily flashed in my head).

But so far, they've been handling that well. In the finale, I expected a scene with them rolling around in bed strategically naked or something, but they showed restraint (and class), and provided a logical reason for why things couldn't work out the way they had hoped. Showing restraint also helped to sell the hardship.

Much as Family Guy and American Dad can be very acquired tastes, MacFarlane and his team tick all the right boxes with this show.

In a lot of respects it is their craftmanship, and clearly learning from the mistakes of other shows.

I'm no fan of either FAMILY GUY or AMERICAN DAD, but a few years back I watched A MILLION WAYS TO DIE IN THE WEST and was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. I came to THE ORVILLE hoping for a similar vibe and, minus the needless gross-outs, found it.

=======================================================

I can warm to American Dad more because it can be quite clever at times in its parody and approaches to the spy, sci-fi, and even horror genres. Family Guy just seems too aim too low and is too obnoxious. That's why I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed The Orville.

Not seen A Million Ways to Die in the West. I'll give it a look.

••

In A MILLION WAYS, MacFarlane works to a good formula. If the story were stripped of its humor, and its gross-outs, it would still be a solid Western movie. Same with THE ORVILLE. Minus the humor, it would still be solid Sci-Fi.

Word is out that Marina Sirtis is going to appear in this season in some capacity.  It'll be funny if she's in alien makeup so no one can tell that its her.

Or if they poke fun at Roddeberry’s original concept for Deanna Troi by giving her three breasts!
