A new trailer for the fourth season of Orphan Black has arrived, and the BBC America sci-fi series looks to start things off with a bang. Literally.
The new trailer includes some peeks at explosives (uh oh), plus the uber-talented Tatiana Maslany as a myriad of different characters. The season promises to return to the heart of the mystery that kicked off the series (the death of Beth Childs), after chasing some rabbit holes about another clone group last season. If the trailer is any indication, Maslany will certainly have more than a few chances to keep flexing her acting muscles this year.
The network has also released some intel on the first three episodes of the season, which seem to follow the fallout from a Neolution attack.
Here are the official synopses for the first three episodes:
EPISODE 401 – THURSDAY, APRIL 14, 10/9c
After two months of respite, Sarah’s hard-won refuge in Iceland is shattered by a Neolution attack. Once again forced to flee, she realizes no matter how far her family runs it will never be far enough.
EPISODE 402 – THURSDAY, APRIL 21, 10/9c
After evading a Neolution attack in Iceland, Sarah returns home to track down an elusive new ally. She follows breadcrumbs and uncovers the next facet of Neolution’s agenda – implanting dangerous technological devices in humans. However, those she left behind are wary about her return, not wanting to relinquish their semblance of normalcy. As Cosima struggles with Delphine’s disappearance, Alison and Donnie host a pregnant and ever-hungry Helena. Meanwhile Felix, feeling like an outsider, embarks on his own journey of self-discovery.
EPISODE 403 – THURSDAY, APRIL 28, 10/9c
As Sarah reels from the shocking discovery of Neolution’s biotech, she’s desperate to find answers. Always impulsive, she follows a lead into a harrowing encounter that requires the help of a reluctant new player. Eager to assist, Mrs. S strikes an alliance with an old nemesis. Rachel receives a visit from her keeper and takes a fraught step forward towards recovery. Meanwhile, Helena is mistaken for “Mrs. Hendrix” when she answers a visit from suspicious visitors.
