The Orville is now a bonafide matchmaker. Co-stars Adrianne Palicki and Scott Grimes are officially married.
Palicki, who plays First Officer Cmdr. Kelly Grayson, couldn’t stop gushing about the nuptials in a recent tweet. “I am so grateful for all the friends and family who made trip to celebrate with us, and to all of you for the kind words.”
Last night was truly amazing! I am so grateful for all the friends and family who made trip to celebrate with us, and to all of you for the kind words.

Palicki and Grimes, who started dating while filming, have worked together on The Orville since 2017. The duo announced their engagement back in January with much support from fans.

Palicki and Grimes aren’t the only couples to have come out of The Orville. Co-creator Seth MacFarlane was rumored to be dating former co-star Halston Sage. Sage played the super strong security chief on the USS Orville but left the series at the beginning of season 2.
Seth MacFarlane created the show as a love letter to Star Trek. The series follows the adventures of the crew of the USS Orville as they go up against powerful enemies and explore the cosmos. The show was recently renewed for a third season, much to the delight of fans. We’re sure to see more romance blossom from the continued adventures of the USS Orville.
Are you excited to see The Orville coming back for a third season? Let us know in the comments below.
I’m just a Star Trek loving, video game playing, dog owning nerd who loves to talk about all things that are geeky with anyone who will listen. I still have my original working NES and still believe blowing in the cartridge makes it work! Feel free to start a conversation with me about all things gaming and entertainment, I do love a great chat with like minded people!!
