Orphan Black will be premiering its final season a little later in the year than normal, but that just means it won’t end as soon as we thought!
In an announcement by BBC America, Orphan Black‘s final season was revealed to premiere Saturday, June 10 at 10/9 Central. That’s right, the show will be premiering on a Saturday this year. A clone club party every Saturday? We’re up for it!
There’s not much information about the plot, but BBC America has also announced that, for the first time ever, Tatiana Maslany will accompany the rest of the cast at this year’s PaleyFest LA. Jordan Gavaris, Maria Doyle Kennedy, Kristian Bruun, Kevin Hanchard, Evelyne Brochu, Ari Millen, acting double Kathryn Alexandre and co-creator and writer, Graeme Manson are all slated to appear alongside Maslany for the panel.
PaleyFest LA is a two-week series of nightly panels put together by the Paley Center for Media, which brings casts from several hit shows like Orphan Black, American Horror Story and many more. Each night a new show takes the stage and shares anecdotes, secrets and exclusive announcements about what might happen next in their upcoming seasons.
At San Diego Comic-Con this year Orphan Black co-creator John Fawcett revealed that this final season is going to be both happy and sad, and that it may in fact be a bittersweet ending for us. Despite this sounding a little dark, we’re actually excited about the possibilities of a bittersweet ending because, as it stands, the survival rate on this show for the main clones has been impeccable.
A couple episodes into season 4 we voiced our concerns about how unrealistic it may be that all the main clones of the series have survived while the one-offs tend to die left and right. It looks like this final season will finally bring some real risk, and we’re looking forward to finding out who will live.
