Orphan Black Renewed for Second Season
The sci-fi series, which stars Tatiana Maslany as an aimless girl who steals the identity of a woman who looks exactly like her, made its premiere on March 30 to stellar reviews. The show marked BBC America’s second foray into scripted programming. The first up to bat was the Civil War-era cop drama Copper.
“Tatiana Maslany has delivered one of the year’s standout performances. We’re excited to commission a second season from the talented team of Graeme, John and Temple Street Productions and we can’t wait to see who Tatiana shows up as in season two,” General Manager of BBC Worldwide America Perry Simon said in a statment.
Executive producers David Fortier and Ivan Schneeberg also released a statement, expressing gratitude over the news.
“We’re delighted with the second season order for Orphan Black and want to thank everyone at BBC America, BBC Worldwide and Space for their support and commitment to our show,” they said. “We’re thrilled to continue this journey with such a strong team and fantastic cast, led by the ridiculously talented Tatiana Maslany. A huge thanks to the fans for their steadfast support of the show. We’re looking forward to giving every one of them more Orphan Black.”
The series finale is set to air June 1.
