Some news Clone Club has been waiting for: BBC AMERICA announced the renewal of its award-winning original series Orphan Black for a fifth and final season. The drama starring Tatiana Maslany has been re-commissioned for a 10-episode order from Temple Street and is slated to air in 2017. The series has been hailed as "thoroughly impressive, wildly entertaining" by The Hollywood Reporter, and as "a singular accomplishment in drama" by The Daily Beast.
Sarah Barnett, President of BBC AMERICA, stated, "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."
Co-creators John Fawcett and Graeme Manson stated: "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."
"When we embarked upon this journey with John and Graeme, we knew we had something special on our hands, but didn't imagine how deeply it would resonate with audiences and the worldwide acclaim it would receive. We are truly in awe of Tatiana who, each season, pulls off the impossible and brings each clone and their unique personalities to life in an extraordinarily captivating way," said David Fortier and Ivan Schneeberg, Executive Producers of Orphan Black and Co-Presidents of Boat Rocker Studios.
