‘The Orville’ Season 2 Episode 4 Cast: Who Are the Special Guests?

FOX The Orville

Fox’s hit show The Orville brings fans new special guests in every episode. Here’s a look at the special guests and cast who are expected to join tonight’s episode, called “Nothing Left on Earth Excepting Fishes,” which is Season 2 Episode 4. If any of these guests do not appear or if new guests are seen, this story will be updated to reflect the changes.

In this episode, the Krill are back. The synopsis reads, “Ed finds himself behind enemy lines when he crash lands on a mysterious planet; Kelly questions why Gordon wants to take the Command Test.” We’re not entirely sure yet who plays the main Krill in tonight’s episode, but we’ll update this story as soon as we know. For now, here are other special guests expected to appear tonight. UPDATE: Not all of these characters ended up appearing, and Heavy has updated the story accordingly.

Michaela McManus plays Janel, the cartographer and Ed’s new love interest. Her many previous credits include SEAL Team (Alana), The Magicians (Callie), Aquarius (Grace), Necessary Roughness (Noelle), Awake (Tara), The Vampire Diaries (Jules), Law & Order SVU (Kim Greylek), One Tree Hill (Lindsey), and more.


Patrick Warburton is the new interim security chief with the really long nose/snout/elephant trunk thing. And he was hilarious. We know the interim chief’s identity thanks to Warburton’s own Instagram.
