After more than three years, Seth MacFarlane's The Orville will be back on June 2 with a new season, and we have a first look at it through a trailer below.

The former Fox series will now be a Hulu original and titled The Orville: New Horizons. It is set 400 years in the future when the crew of the titular spaceship continues their exploratory mission across the galaxy, navigating the mysteries of the universe and their own complicated relationships.

"It's almost like yesterday was one life and today's another," Adrianne Palicki's Commander Kelly Grayson says in the trailer. "And everything's different on this side of time."

While most of the characters feel like it's good to be back, Scott Grimes' Lieutenant Gordon Malloy has a request for change already: "I really wish they'd let us play music up here," he says. "We'd already be on our feet, ready for action!"

As the ship passes through new territory, they will face new dangers since other beings in the galaxy are not willing to step in and save them, should they get into trouble. But "exploration always carries risk," so they are willing to risk it, in part to show other beings the best of how humanity can be.

"May the force be with you," MacFarlane's Captain Ed Mercer says.

McFarlane created the series, and he also writes, executive produces, and stars in it. The rest of the cast includes Penny Johnson Jerald, Peter Macon, Jessica Szohr, J Lee, Mark Jackson, Anne Winters, and Chad L. Coleman. Other executive producers are Brannon Braga, David A. Goodman, Jon Cassar, Jason Clark, and Howard Griffith. The show is produced by 20th Television and Fuzzy Door.
