Space Orders Season 4 of Orphan Black
Space has confirmed that it has ordered 10 additional, one-hour episodes of its critically-acclaimed clone conspiracy thriller Orphan Black.
Season 4 of the Canadian original drama will see the return of phenomenal, award-winning Canadian actor, and Golden Globe-nominee Tatiana Maslany (Woman In Gold, Parks and Recreation), who has portrayed nine distinct clones to date. Production is set to begin this fall, in Toronto.
“Orphan Black has become one of the decade’s breakthrough dramas, and a signature series for Space,” said Tracey Pearce, Senior Vice-President of Specialty and Pay at Bell Media, in a press release. “This series is evidence that when a pedigreed creative team comes together with incredible actors, they create something impactful. We look forward to continuing to work with Temple Street and BBC America on what is sure to be another mind-bending season.”
“The growth of Orphan Black and the amazing response from audiences over the past three seasons has exceeded our expectations and we’re delighted to be able to continue the journey in season four,” commented David Fortier and Ivan Schneeberg, executive producers of Orphan Black and Co-Presidents of Temple Street Productions. “We are incredibly proud of our talented cast and crew and grateful for the support from our broadcast partners at Space and BBCA.”
In the next episode of Orphan Black, “Newer Elements of Our Defense” (Saturday, May 9th at 9pm) Mark (Ari Millen, Reign) is taken down in a Prolethean shoot-out and Sarah (Maslany) must step in to help. But as Sarah gathers intel that puts her on the trail of the original Castor DNA, a familiar foe is not far behind. While Helena (Maslany) continues to struggle in a faraway military compound, it is ultimately Sarah’s fate that will hang in the balance as she tries to save her sister. Meanwhile, Gracie (Zoé De Grand Maison, Rookie Blue) is cast out from the Prolethean fold, and Alison (Maslany) and Donnie (Kristian Bruun, Murdoch Mysteries) come face-to-face with unhappy drug lord, Jason Kellerman (Justin Chatwin, Shameless).
All-new episodes of Orphan Black Season 3 air Saturdays at 9pm on Space. The first two seasons are streaming now on CraveTV.
