Comedy legend Norm Macdonald died Tuesday at the age of 61 after a private battle with cancer, but we haven’t seen the last of Norm just yet.
Macdonald will appear in the upcoming season of Seth MacFarlane‘s sci-fi comedy series The Orville – where he plays the blob-shaped engineer Lieutenant Yaphit.
Production for The Orville season 3 was completed in August.
MacFarlane was one of many comedians and celebrities who paid tribute to MacDonald on Tuesday, tweeting:
“there was nobody funnier than Norm MacDonald. You always hoped he would hang around after the work was done, just so you could hear his stories and get a laugh.”
