Orphan Black Receives Second Season Order

Orphan BlackIt’s another win for British style productions in the US, as BBC America’s critically acclaimed Orphan Black has received a full 10 episode order for a second season.

“Tatiana Maslany has delivered one of the year’s standout performances,” said BBC Worldwide America’s General Manager, Perry Simon. “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.”

Executive Producers of Orphan Black, and Co-Presidents of Temple Street Productions, David Fortier and Ivan Schneeberg added that they were “ 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. 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 groundbreaking series launched on March 30 with Sarah (Maslany), an outsider and orphan whose life changes dramatically after witnessing the suicide of a woman, “Beth,” who looks just like her. Sarah takes her identity, her boyfriend and her bank account. But instead of solving her problems, the street-smart chameleon is thrust headlong into a kaleidoscopic mystery. She makes the dizzying discovery that she and the dead woman are clones… but are they the only ones? Sarah quickly finds herself caught in the middle of a deadly conspiracy, racing to find answers.

Orphan Black hits Blu-ray on 16th July in the US. Pre-order now from Amazon.
