BBC America Releases Teasers For Orphan Black’s Final Season

Saturday, June 10th Orphan Black returns for its fifth and final season. I’m not ready, especially after seeing the first few teases BBC America has just released.

The sci-fi drama, created by John Fawcett and Graeme Manson and produced by Temple Street with BBC America and Space, has been one of the best shows around for the last few years. I knew it had to come to an end sometime and I have hope everyone involved put everything they had into this last season. Upon the big announcement last year Fawcett and Manson said, “We are excited to deliver an epic conclusion to the tale of Sarah and her clone sisters. The past four seasons have been a phenomenal adventure and we are eternally grateful to our loyal fans who have loved the twists and thrills of our weird little show. We are thankful to our partners at Temple Street, and to BBC America and Space for their support and giving us the opportunity to end on a high.”

BBC America released these first snippets of Season 5 to whet our appetite today. Assume the first trailer is not far behind…


Tatiana Maslany, who finally got her well-deserved Emmy last year, will be wrapping up her time as 11 different clone characters and joining her for the final bow are Jordan Gavaris (Felix), Kristian Bruun (Donnie), Evelyne Brochu (Delphine), Maria Doyle Kennedy (Mrs. S), Kevin Hanchard (Art), Ari Millen (Ira), Josh Vokey (Scott), Skyler Wexler (Kira), James Frain ( Ferdinand), and even Hell Wizard himself, Calwyn Shurgold.

As the mystery expands we’ll also be getting a few new faces to the scene like Elyse Levesque (Neolutionist/Detective Engers), Andrew Moodie (consultant to Rachel, Mr. Frontenac), Simu Liu (Kira’s homeroom teacher, Mr. Mitchell), and Jenessa Grant (an islander named Mud). Veteran actor Stephen McHattie will also be making an appearances as the curious P.T. Westmoreland.

In case you missed it, make sure to check out Maslany’s recent appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert where she was adorable but also got to put her acting skills to use.

Orphan Black Season 5 premieres Saturday, June 10 at 10/9c on BBC America.
