Tonight, Fox’s new show The Orville premieres. And science fiction fans can’t wait! Here’s the official description for the show:

Down on his luck after a bitter divorce, Planetary Union officer Ed Mercer finally gets his chance to command his own ship. Determined to prove his worth and start a new chapter, Ed discovers the first wrinkle in his plan when the First Officer assigned to his ship is his ex-wife, Kelly Grayson.
