Orphan Black renewed for a final fifth season
Orphan Black, produced by Canadian production company Temple Street and BBC America hasn't had a huge presence on UK television screens, shunted to late nights on BBC 3 before Netflix picked up the show from its fourth season. But it remains one of the most gripping, intelligent dramas on TV, with the show's star Tatiana Maslany proving herself as one of the best actresses on TV playing several different clones. For those who have watched the show since the beginning, it has delivered some fascinating characters (most Maslany's) and some amazing twists and turns and now it has been renewed for a final fifth season that will wrap up the epic clone drama.
One the renewal, BBC America president Sarah Barnett made the following statement:
"Orphan Black is a thrilling, genre-bending ride that has captured our fans’ imaginations and hearts like no other show. Our genius team of actors, writers and producers have, time after time, taken us to a place of awe, delight and utter shock and surprise. Tatiana has been and continues to be a complete revelation, hers is one of the most remarkable performances on television, and she is joined by an extraordinary cast. We can’t wait to take our incredibly passionate audience on one final gobsmacking clone adventure." - BBC America
Orphan Black's co-creators and showrunners Graeme Manson and John Fawcett added:
"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
