Boom! Studios has announced that The Orville is returning to comic books this summer with The Orville Season 2.5, which will consist of two-issue “episodes” telling stories set between the second and third seasons of Seth McFarlane’s hit television show.
Written by The Orville executive producer David A. Goodman with art from David Cabeza and Michael Atiyeh, The Orville Season 2.5 will get underway with Launch Day #1 (of 2). Here’s the solicitation:
When seemingly hostile Krill ships cross into Union space, the Orville intercepts. Captain Mercer learns they are en route to a planet that left the Union decades ago, under mysterious circumstances. Scans have discovered a moon-sized construct above the planet, and the Krill intend a preemptive strike against the presumed weapon. But is it?
The Orville Season 2.5: Launch Day #1 will go on sale on June 3rd 2020.
