Season 2.5 is an upcoming season of The Orville scheduled for release on June 3, 2020 as a comic book through Dark Horse Comics.[1] Season 2.5 consists of two episodes with two issues per episode.[2]

According to Screen Rant, the USS Orville is sent to intercept a Krill ship entering Planetary Union space and to investigate further.

[I]n doing so, they learn that the Krill are headed to a planet that, under strange circumstances, seceded from the Union a long time ago. It turns out that the Krill have discovered a large, moon-sized construct above the planet, and that they intend to attack it before this what-they-assume-to-be weapon can be used against them, but the question remains, what really is it? It will be interesting to see how the crew handles the matter as the planet is technically out of their jurisdiction, but does hold possible consequences for the entire galaxy.[1]
Chronologically, Season 2.5 is expected to take place between the finale of Season 2 and the premiere of Season 3.

The show's executive producer David A. Goodman returns as writer, while David Cabeza and Michael Atiyeh return as inker and colorist respectively. According to Goodman, Season 2.5 has soft canonical value: facts introduced in the comic books establish the show's canon unless contradicted by the television episodes.[3]

Production Edit

Season 2.5 was drawn by artist David Cabeza. Cabeza found First Officer Kelly Grayson and Helmsman Gordon Malloy most difficult to draw while working Season 1.5. Little changed for him in Season 2.5. "After a year working with these characters I still don’t find the way to draw them right."[4]
