It is clear that The Orville cast has a great time filming the show. Who else cracks up that often when things go wrong at their job? Exactly. Also, I want to point out that the person that cut this gag reel together did incredible work. They did not stay on a moment too long, and the footage is fantastically edited together.
One of the most memorable moments occurs at the 1:43-mark. Isaac is talking to Ty, and actor Mark Jackson forgets his line. Cue his co-star Kai Wener’s terrific reaction as Jackson curses. He immediately apologizes before eventually saying “Who said that?” in a hilarious attempt to divert attention. Too late! Wener knows all about it, and so does the gag reel.
One thing you will notice at the 29-second mark is how well you can hear the actors in a club environment. The music is added in later because you could never hear them otherwise. Little glimpses like that are always fun as they give you an added respect for everything that goes into making a show.
Thankfully, it does not look like those automatic doors closed with anyone in their path. Had they, one of The Orville cast members could have gotten hurt. The speed! The cast had to deal with them unexpectedly closing at many points during the gag reel.
If that was not enough to contend with, the cast also had what appeared to be a dropped mic and squeaky chairs. It can be a rough job, but somebody has to do it.
Seeing how great the gag reel is for The Orville Season 2, it makes you wonder: Will, there be a Season 3, so there can be another one? Actor Chad Coleman, who plays Klyden on the series, seems hopeful about it, although he did encourage fans to use social media to express how much they love the show.
Known for its ambition, The Orville went less hard on its aspects as a comedy in Season 2. It also welcomed The Vampire Diaries alum Candice King as an alien; and another CW star, Gossip Girl alum Jessica Szohr, joined the sci-fi show as a series regular in Season 2; her former co-star, Leighton Meester also guest starred.
