Did Alara leave the Orville due to personal relations with Seth Mcfarlane?
She had been working on other projects. Maybe one of them is better.
That a strong possibility, due to the sudden departure of her character. However both party are hush hush about it, so we won't know for sure until one of them actually give us more detail. What we do know is that Fox's stated that her character is gone, but if the actress ever want to return the door are still open. Which does sound like it could be a relationship issue. A shame, she was my second favorite next to Isaac.
