Orphan Black Final Season Premiere Date Set at BBC America

The next meeting of Clone Club is scheduled for Saturday, June 10 at 10/9c.

That’s when Orphan Black will return for its fifth and final season, BBC America announced Tuesday.

Upcoming episodes of the Tatiana Maslany-led sci-fi series will explore “prolongevity and life extension, which is a very interesting and topical science right now,” co-showrunner Graeme Manson told TVLine at last year’s Emmys. (At that same event, Maslany took home her first Emmy for Lead Actress in a Drama Series.)

Also, as Manson previewed at San Diego Comic-Con, the fifth season’s revelation “is that the founder of Neolution [P.T. Westmoreland] is somehow still alive… That is part of the big mystery for next year.”

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    So Tatiana won’t be elegible for the 2017 Emmys, right?

  2. Joey says:

    Unfortunately yes. Eligibility for 2017 ends May 31.

    Man we switched cable companies and I forgot to make sure we get BBC. I’m going to be so disappointed if we don’t :(

      I hear ya. My provider has 4 plans. Only two of them, the lowest and the highest, include BBC America. I chose the lowest plan, so no sports channels.

      One suggestion (it probably isn’t a good suggestion, and I’m not sure if it’s a doable option for you): you could pre-buy the entire season on Amazon Video. My guess is it would be roughly $15.99. If you do that, each episode will automatically upload the day after it airs, so you’d only have to wait 1 extra day to see each episode. I have BBCAmerica now, but I didn’t during season 4, so that’s what I did. There are likely more viable options than that, but thought I’d still throw it out there.
