Orphan Black Season 2 Cast Photo: One of These Clones Is Not Like the Others

Dark and stormy, with a chance of lookalikes.

That seems to be the forecast for Season 2 of BBC America’s thrilling, brain-bending Orphan Black — at least based on the official cast photo below.

VIDEO | Orphan Black Season 2 Trailer: New Enemies Attack Sarah & Co. — Plus: A [Spoiler] Clone?!

Golden Globe nominee Tatiana Maslany is front and center as our protagonist clone Sarah, who’s using a “scorched earth” policy to find her missing daughter Kira as the season begins. There’s also buttoned-up (and mentally crumbling) Alison on the right, in pearls (naturally); brilliant (and physically crumbling) Cosima in dreadlocks, seated to the left; and blonde pro-clone Rachel, standing at the left, whose powerful Dyad company wants to bring all the clones together under one ominous umbrella.

The rest of the show’s familiar faces are all present and accounted for (except for crazy/beautiful Helena — sniffle), as well as two newcomers lurking in the shadows: Nashville‘s Michiel Huisman as Cal, a rugged and resourceful outdoorsman, and Nikita‘s Peter Outerbridge as Johanssen, “a mercurial modern-day cowboy and leader of a new breed of religious extremists.” The former is barely visible to the immediate left of Sarah, while the latter is decked out in a black Stetson and bolo tie.

  2. Leah says:

    Oh my gosh. Fe looks fabulous!

  3. Patricia says:

    <3 Orphan Black! #CloneClub

  4. PJ says:

    Can we talk about how Kira is drawing a picture of what looks like Helena while looking off screen? It might not mean anything but if there’s even a slight chance that Helena is alive, I’m clinging to it.

  5. Luis says:

    I am practically vibrating with excitement right now!

  6. Kaycee says:

    Wow what have they done to Felix!?!?? – either way, amazing picture!

  7. Bad Wolf says:

    Alison Hendricks forever ! I just can’t stop listening to Meredith Brooks’s “Bitch” ! I usually hate all those photoshopped cast promo photo where you can easily tell they weren’t even together but posed individually in front of a green screen. Orphan Black is the one show for which such a photo is justified, and this one rocks.
    Come back soon Sarah, Alison, Cosima, Rachel and all the others !

    What happened to the cops? And Sarah’s druggie ex-boyfriend? (Good riddance!). Recurring or guesting if necessary, I gather.

    • Jax says:

      I really hope the druggie ex is gone. He was annoying and served his purpose in the first season. He is completely unnecessary at this point.

    • amy says:

      Art’s in the pic. Glad he’s back – I loved how he and his new partner started to put things together at the end of last season.

  9. GeoDiva says:

    Can’t wait!

  10. Sara says:

    I love, love, love the torn scarf at Alison’s feet! So many little touches in this picture! Can’t wait for the upcoming season!

    • arianeb says:

      Supposedly a lot of hidden clues too. So on the left side is the DYAD group (Leekie, Paul, Rachel, Daphne, and Cosima) everyone is looking to their left except Cosima who is looking at Kira. That Kira is on the DYAD side probably means they are the ones holding her (though that is a fairly obvious plot development). Cosima’s interest in Kira, besides the obvious “rescue”, is that Kira seems to have strong healing powers that could help Cosima, though they cant be that strong since Kira has a cast on her right foot. Another clue of “Cosima to the rescue” is that Kira is drawing Cosima, though they have never met.
      In the middle is Sarah, with mysterious new guy on one side and Felix on the other. Felix and Allison are obviously BFFs this season, just like last, even though when they first met Allison nearly shot Felix. The blue scarf is obvious. Donnie is back too, which now that we know his connection to DYAD ought to be awkward.
      Finally, team “Anti-Dyad” led by shotgun toting Mrs. S, the thoroughly confused Art Bell, and the guy from Nikita dressed like Wyatt Earp.

      • Fluff says:

        The “guy from Nikita” (ugh, I hate this actor!) is also wearing a winged fish on his belt buckle (like Helena’s knife handle and the same one that was tattooed on Maggie Chen) so he must be a Prolethean.
        Cosima is not looking at Kira, she’s looking to the side and back, presumably at Delphine but I like your theory.
        More odd/funny things:
        – the bracelet Rachel wears is very similar (identical?) to the one worn by Mrs S and partly similar to the one Cosima is wearing. Kinda resembles a shackle, wouldn’t you say?
        – Mrs S is wearing one black nail. Just one. No idea what that means (beside the Orphan Black literal connection) but it can’t be gratuitous
        – Sarah’s wearing a charm around her neck that represents two human figures, presumably a Gemini astrological sign.
