Orphan Black will return for more clone shenanigans when the series premieres in June, and ahead of the show’s debut, BBC America has released some first-look pics and a new description for the upcoming fifth and final season.
I don’t know about you, but I miss the sestras (Sarah, Alison, Helena, Cosima – all played by Emmy-winning actress Tatiana Maslany). Heck, I even miss Rachel! (Again, Maslany.) So yeah, I’m really looking forward to getting reacquainted with the members of the Clone Club, and these new pics just managed to whet my appetite for the show’s return.
The clone sisters are not the only ones returning for Orphan Black's very last season: Felix (Jordan Gavaris), Mrs. S (Maria Doyle Kennedy), Delphine (Evelyne Brochu), Art (Kevin Hanchard), Scott (Josh Vokey), Donnie (Kristian Bruun), Kira (Skyler Wexler), Krystal (Maslany), Ira (Ari Millen) and Ferdinand (James Frain) are also on board for the show’s final run, which promises to reveal ALL. Here’s the Season 5 synopsis:
This season, the walls close in on Sarah when nearly all her sestras and their allies are brought to heel by Rachel. Even more harrowing is that her daughter Kira has joined them. With the threat of Neolution having carte blanche access to clone biology, Sarah is desperate to gain control, but realizes she must change tactics to pursue a long game. Protecting both her families, and the host of clones she’s yet to meet, Sarah and those still fighting the fight will uncover the missing pieces of the insidious conspiracy – and finally learn the story behind their origin. Despite the great risk, the fight of her life will either set her and her sestras free, or see them meet their end...
While fans are certainly looking forward to getting answers to the questions we've all been asking since Beth died on Day One, I'll miss the show and Tatiana Maslany's masterful performances once it comes to a close. How about you? Orphan Black returns on Saturday, June 10, at 10/9c on BBCA.
