Clone Club, it’s time to throw a dance party! Bring your seestras and brother-seestras! BBC America has announced that Orphan Black has been renewed for a fourth season.
Like the first three seasons, season 4 will consist of 10 episodes, and right now, it is slated to air in 2016. If the pattern continues, it would premiere in the spring.
BBC America President and General Manager, Sarah Barnett, has said in a statement, “Orphan Black is an entirely fresh and original show that stands out even in today’s crowded TV landscape. Tatiana Maslany’s buzzy, virtuoso performance headlines a brilliant cast and we are delighted to let our vocal and passionate fan base know that this wildly entertaining ride will continue next year.”
Co-creators John Fawcett and Graeme Manson have reacted to the renewal news as well, stating, “We’re thrilled to be moving forward with season four of the Orphan Black saga. Huge thanks to our partners Temple Street Productions, and to BBC AMERICA and Space. We’re extremely excited about where our story lines are going, and look forward to riding the rollercoaster with our amazing fans #CloneClub.”
“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,” David Fortier and Ivan Schneeberg, executive producers on the series and Co-Presidents of Temple Street Productions, have added. “We are incredibly proud of our talented cast and crew and grateful for the support from our broadcast partners at BBC AMERICA and Space.”
Orphan Black season 3 airs Saturdays at 9pm on BBC America. The season finale will air on June 20.
