After its first detections of gravitational waves and the installation of new upgrades, Advanced Virgo has started a new commissioning phase in order to improve its sensitivity for the next observing run O3. The correction of optical aberrations through adaptive optical systems is crucial to reach the design performances. In this talk, the system installed on Advanced Virgo and its performances will be presented, with a discussion on possible future evolutions.
